Bottle and gets a perfect score from me. It taste like what you would expect. A very nice cream ale with a vanilla finish. It is very refreshing and is only brewed in the spring and summer months. Wish they could put it in cans as well and make it year around. One of my favorites. Love the Creek.

Great summer beer. Tastes like a blonde ale with a nice touch of vanilla flavor on the end. Light body and good taste

I'm not usually one for gimmick tastes in my beer, but the vanilla in this really works. Probably the greatest thing to come out of the Carolinas...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Filtered yellow tan, very pale. Thin, steady, white head. Creamy, vanilla aroma. Damn, nails the style for a Cream Ale. Thin and light bodied, very drinkable. Honey, vanilla ice cream niceness, with a zesty balance. Subtle, inoffensive, a great session beer. Corny, vanilla, faint balancing wheat. Well done. Great beer, my high rate simply reflects how well it captured the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

I had this both ways due to the urging of the brewmaster. The first time you try this, it is wonderful, light and refreshing with vanilla as an afterthought, not cloyingly sweet as I expected. Almost like someone just poured a drop of real vanilla extract into your glass. Backed up by a solid malt character. The other way to try this one is mixed with the doppelbock and let me tell you that is like candy in a glass, a must try!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. A golden yellow brew with a sweet vanilla aroma and taste. A nice mild bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation that was well balanced with the vanilla flavor. A good session beer.

Tasted this at the Border Beer Bust and was a bit surprised. It was one the beers in the experimental category and it was a bit like drinking a cream soda without most of the sweetness. I almost scored it in second place for the category, but the lightness of the beer let it fall behind. Excellent flavor, the vanilla is balanced with the light straw malt and the low hopping makes it extremely drinkable. I could see turning on non-beer drinkers pretty easily with this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 Golden, with a white head. subtle but nice vanilla aroma. Flavor is vanilla and malty - like a ’nilla wafer. mellow, smooth finish. points for not going overboard with the vanilla flavors.
