Bottle: Pale golden hue with a nice frothy head and some lace. The nose shows vanilla beans, crystal malt, some obscure fruit esters and a whole lot of medicinal vapours. The taste is a fake vanilla over syrupy sweet malts with a quick but subdued fruit tone. The mouth feel is soft and cardboardy, dry and bland. BLAH BARF YUCK, you get the point. Again, how is this brewery still in business?

The aroma is weak with malt and a little vanilla. The appearance is light gold with a thin head.The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s weak.

Bottle from secret santa. Thanks! Yellow pour, white head that faces to a ring of lace around the outer edge. Sweet, grainy aroma with a touch of vanilla. Light bodied sweetness, touch of vanilla, and some graininess in the flavor. Finish is slightly sour. Thanks, Santa!

pours a cloudy dark gold with a small white head. sweet aroma of vanilla and pineapple. flavor has some vanilla and something citrusy and sour. all the thomas creeks beers i’ve tried have this same sourness. there is a pretty good beer underneath here but unfortunately the sour infection, or whatever it is, damages the flavor. light bodied. drinkable i suppose.

Supprisingly not bad. Very light in color and body. A ton of vanilla in the aroma and flavor. Kinda like a cream soda. Nice.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle courtesy Jmichael. Pours a cloudy amber with thick and lacy white head. Noble hop aroma with just a touch of vanilla sweetness behind it? Medium body and medium-full carbonation. The taste starts and finishes with a somewhat acidic edge to it. The taste is also a bit thin with just a little honey and bread in there. The finish is problematic. Kind of a bitter cardboard sensation, if that makes any sense.

poured into tall tulip. pours a clear bronze with high frothy white head that stays, does not look that bad, actually looks pretty good, this bubbly copper with a white full frothy head. has a light malty aroma. creamy full mouthfeel for such a light looking beer, vanilla front with slight bitter finish. vanilla is present but does not overwhelm. very frothy and creamy. not as bad as I thought it was going to be, pretty good actually.

Poured yellow with white head. Aroma of vanilla and hops. Wasn’t much to the flavor. Tasted like a light beer with vanilla hints. Weak.
