From the bottle, this had a nice vanilla aroma. From the cup, the aroma turned sulphury. Fair label. Moderate vanilla tones, not cloying, tart and not very bitter or sweet. Medium-light body. Tangy finish. A certain fluffiness to the mouthfeel. Thanks to LuckyDog.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Straw yellow. Big bubbles on the head. Some vanilla on the head. Not too exciting. Im not a fan of vanilla and cream ales and this beer has not changed my mind.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma and flavor are rather grainy, lots of vanilla, very little hoppiness, a little biscuity malt.

Draught. Looks like cream soda and drinks like it too. Easy on a hot day in Richmond. Pale vanilla taste all the way very refreshing.

Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Pours a nice golden pale yellow with a one-finger white head that quickly subsides to a minimal amount. There was no apparent lacing evident. The aroma was comprised of a slight hop hint and vanilla. The flavor of this beer actually came in three stages in the same succession: First you would get a very light hop flavor that was followed by a note of vanilla, that was then followed by a note of cream upon swallowing. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a very interesting brew with multiple flavors coming in as the sip goes along. This is a nice seasonal from Thomas Creek and is very smooth to drink and enjoyable. Worth a try for any cream ale lover.

Cybercat (5175) - Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Aroma is fairly strong and mainly of wilting lettuce - not too promising. It pours a clear straw yellow with a rather typical fluffy white head. Flavor is malty, a bit wan - not what I expect from Thomas Creek; I have enjoyed the other beers from this brewery that I have tried. Texture is fairly smooth and fizzy, about average.

Drake (11961) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Bruisin Ales in Asheville, NC. Pours a crystal clear pale golden color with a medium creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of vanilla, corn and nutty notes. Taste is grainy malts, nutty notes, toasted grain, vanilla, leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. I like cream ales and I love vanilla so naturally this one is just to my liking.

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Pours a clear dull gold with quick fading whitish head. Nose is reminiscent of some euro strong lagers, but with just a hint of some noble hops and corn. Very grainy flavor, corn, acidic bite. Id rather have a bud. Not the best from these guys.
