2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewer’s Festival 2013... Clear, straw-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head that sticks around for a good while. I’m getting no aroma from this brew at all – none – zero – zip – zilch. At least it’s inoffensive. Light-bodied and watery with moderate carbonation. Tastes like seltzer water with a gentle splash of vanilla and the faintest sweetness. Short, crisp, mildly sweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with Suttree (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas were hard to pick out and were all on the faint side. I eventually could get very light vanilla and some graininess. Tastes of vanilla (a lot stronger than the aroma) and sweet malts. Fizzy and lively body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Hazy dark straw pour with 1-finger whitish heas, and some floaties (this one is bottle conditioned). The aroma was a fairly pleasant corn flakey malt, coupled with citrus, hops, and vanilla beans. The flavor was sour malty, citric, with a decent vanilla hit, and some creaminess in the finish. A bit too tart for my taste, and not vanilla enough. I’d actually prefer a more cream soda flavor to the rather tart, mellow vanilla I got here. Not horrible, but probably not one I’d buy again.

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.
