heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2012
A bright medium gold colored brew with a thin off white head. Sugar cookies! This is mostly what I smell. There is also some hay. This tastes a lot more dry than I expected. There is also lots of wood and some hints of the sugar cookie character, but it is very light and in the finish. A little bit herbal, this one is decent. The vanilla is barely detected. Not one of Thomas Creek’s best efforts.

Pours a clear gold, very light. Vanilla aromas. Highly carbonated, creamy mouthfeel. Hints of citrus, straw, vanilla. Not bad, but not good either.

Vestlake (143) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a golden color with a white one finger head, lots of bubbles. The aroma is a like a regular cream ale with maybe a little vanilla. Taste is okay with a little bit of vanilla coming through. The aftertaste is not good though. Kind of a cardboard type of aftertaste and my mouth got very dry. Strange.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head. Aroma is vanilla up front with a sweet malty backbone. Taste follows, light and easy but definitely nice and quaffable. I could see this being good on a hot summer day outside, but not something I like to go out of my way to find.

Bottle from Hop City. Pours a super transparent light gold with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of malts with the slightest hint of vanilla. Taste of caramel, vanilla, and malts.

BackyardDogs (41) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong vanilla flavors overwhelm the caramel malt. The finish is light and thin without a strong hops profile.

rlgk (10276) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with a small offwhite head. Vanilla aroma, caramel, fruity, some hazlnuts, some spicy notes. Vanilla flavor, rather sweet and one dimensional.

chucklemation (455) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Light golden color. The aroma is a combination vanilla and others that give it a strange, skunky sweet smell. There is a very light hint of vanilla and some light bitterness, but overall very little flavor.

ben4321 (3862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/9/13

Aroma: The nose is light and fruity, some malty notes, and some vanilla
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a clean froth of bright white head
Flavor: The taste is sweet and a little fruity, with some additional sweetness from the vanilla
Palate: The body is light, it has a soft, creamy feel, and a fairly short finish
Overall Impression: I thought this beer was only okay. It comes off pretty sweet. It is a little bit on the overly sweet side. Not terrible, but not great.
