This unique copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor.

Robe ambrée, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez élégant sur des notes végétales, épices, légèrement maltée. Bouche tout en fraîcheur et en tension, belle noet herbacée, fine bulle et finale fraîche et équilibrée. Une bière de soif, une bière d’été

12 oz can shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 2. The pour is a darker coppery color with a finger of dense white head that falls to a film leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is very sweet. There is a little spiciness and a general mash presence from being old. It's a little overly sweet with a touch of spice that prevents it from being cloying. The flavor is strong in vanilla up front. It's surprising and lovely. There is a maltiness that comes through on the back and a light spiciness that reminds me of a vanilla birthday cake. There isn't a whole lot happening, but it's definitely drinkable. This one was a surprise.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Can shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #2. Aroma is mash, slight spice, caramel, old, not great. Appearance is amber, off white head, slight haze. Taste is vanilla, slight spice, very sweet, malt, not much else. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, vanilla aftertaste. Overall, I?m not sure what to make of this but it?s drinkable.

Too sweet and not hoppy. Very disappointing given the color and great looking pour.

Fluffy head dies back leaving spotty lacing atop a shiny penny brew. I hate saying it.. there is not much aroma.. maybe a little toastiness that is overwhelmed by the vanilla. Flavor is a sweet maltiness that I don’t really appreciate .. an artificial vanilla component is overpowering on my palate... reminds me of an oversweet grocery store birthday cake. Palate is the best thing going by a long shot in my mind.. very smooth and velvety.. Carbonation is very small bubble silkiness.. Not my cup of tea at all... and really the vanilla should be in a cup of tea. I don’t ever see the brew being refreshing in summer on any other time of year... first drain pour in recent memory.

From a bottle. Eleven Two & Co. Phuket Old Town. Pours deep copper, minimal head, sweet caramel aroma, smooth and dangerously drinkable.

Very good summer ale. I see now that it’s categorized as a cream ale, and that’s probably what made it so good--that creamy hint that makes it stand out.
