Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is average and no lacing is left.
4.0 S: Super grainy with a sweet grassiness. Vanilla wafer through and through. Part herbal, part earthy, party spicy hop aroma. A damn good smelling cream ale.
3.5 T: Tastes good for a cream ale too. White rice, vanilla wafer, grainy malts. Low bitterness. Earthy hop flavor for the most part. Not bad for what it is.
3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Mix of crisp and creamy.
3.5 D: Cream ales aren’t the best style, but a lot of breweries manage to make decent ones nonetheless. Good drinkibility.
Serving type: bottle

22oz bottle. pours a clear gold with a medium, creamy, white head. nose has notes of vanilla, baking soda and pale malt. the flavor is lightly sweet with vanilla cake flavors. the abv does show up in the beginning and is quite astringent but goes away with time and the beer sweetens up some finishing enjoyable. radagast83 (8191) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2011
22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a creamy medium sized white head. Aroma is pale malts, touch of spice. Flavor was light like a lager, corn notes, pale sweet malts, creamy overall. Drinkable, price was about right - so it was certainly worth checking out. Ret12 (453) - Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2011
This beer pours a golden yellow with little to no head. Not as flavorful as I would have hoped but still a very good beer. At 7% a couple 22oz. bottles will have you feeling like Davy Jones himself in no time michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011

Enjoyable if not great. Note sure I really want or need a 7% beer in this style but it does add some heft, which can add some balance to heavier foods. I drank it with indian food and it went pretty well. Also, a decent value compared to other big bottle prices these days. PorterPounder (8171) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Savannah, Ga. - Five Points Liquor - 22 oz bomber. Medium gold pour, soft white head, light lacing. Aroma has a wort-like essence, some grainy notes. Flavor has some honey sweetness, a bit of booziness, some graininess and a bit of soggy oat breakfast cereal. Mouthfeel is thick enough, Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
