A: The pour is a clear amber color with a thin and quickly vanishing off-white head.
S: Nice (lightly) roasted malt aromas combined with a hint of caramel. There’s also a fair amount of diacetyl in there, lending a buttery, almost creamy aroma.
T: Again, a lot of caramel and toasted, biscuit malts. Not much in the way of hop flavor or bitterness, but I like the sweetness this beer has, which manages to be quite balanced.
M: The body is a bit on the light side, but still good, and the carbonation is moderate.
D: I can’t say I’ve had too many cream ales, but I found this one to be very enjoyable. A nice low alcohol beer with good flavors and a light-medium body. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2010

Aroma of fruit and vanilla? Deep amber color with ruby hilites; frothy white head that tried to lace on the rapid way to oblivion. Starts with vanilla. Very creamy. Then stone fruit. Malt and hop seem quite balanced, but the vanilla spice note tends to dominate. Tmoney99 (15137) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2006

A hazed reddish amber ale with a thick creamy light moka head. A rather smooth aroma of vanilla cream and light peated notes. In mouth, a smooth and lightly cloying malt, vanilla/Bailey’s overtones, light cardboard....not my thing. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2005
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body topped by a small and swiftly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel/toffee, vanilla, evoking candy corns. Taste is the same, with a mild astringency in the finish. Watery light-medium body with a light acidity. BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 24, 2012
