Hard to define aroma, almost like a bitter. The flavor is very much dominated by the vanilla and not much else other than a slight bitter flavor. Not horrible but not very good. nuplastikk (6456) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2011
12oz bottle. Amber-orange, somewhat murky. Head fades out quickly, leaving a thin oily residue. Mild vanilla laced malt aroma. As with most Hub City offerings, the carbonation and mouthfeel is off, making me think the bottling set up is sub-par. This is actually a really easy going Cream Ale, maybe a little darker than I associate with the style. Vanilla smooths out an already straightforward beer. A great dessert beer. mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy copper color with a thin fizzy head. The aroma and taste are more or less dominated by the vanilla. There’s a hint of caramel in the flavor and the body is moderately malty. mnurda (1299) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
On Tap at Emassy Suites Airport MSP. I was not fan but my wife loved it. Too much vanilla and creaminess for my liking. jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
You wanna homebrew? Take one cup rootbeer and one cup water. Mix thoroughly. Chill and serve....Shit that probably tastes better than this brew. HORRIBLE! I don’t understand what the deal is. There is no way Im getting heathly brews from them.
I vow to retry all their beers in the future. But as for now, this is one of the worst breweries I have experienced. It baffles me really.

Poured a dark amber color with almost no head at all. This had a very artifical and overpowering vanilla aroma and taste to it. It was actually quite repulsive. I had high hopes for this one when I pulled it off the shelf and saw the babe in the sexy outfit but I was totally let down by this one. CanIHave4Beers (4227) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Pours a hazy pale orange with a very small loose head. The aroma is lots of vanilla and some fruity pear like notes with no noticeable infection, now I shouldn’t have to note this but from these cats no news is good news in the infection department. The flavor is similarly clean with a weird mix of the melted ice cubes formerly cooling a glass of bourbon and straight forward vanilla. Bits of fruitiness peak in, and the sweetness is moderate. It’s really not half bad. FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle.
A - Slightly dark caramel color with a very small foamy white head. Disappears fast leaving behind no lace.
S - Not much in the aroma here. Sweet caramel dominates what is there. Sweet and slightly malty aroma.
T - Taste is pretty much just caramel/butterscotch type of flavor. There is some off flavor as well that reminds me a bit of chapstick. Was searching for the vanilla, but couldn’t really find any.
M - Light body with little carbonation. Flat, slightly smooth, and slight sticky/coating feel at the finish.
D - Don’t really want to have another, it was pretty bland and uninspiring.
Notes: Not a big fan of this beer. It was bland and had a slightly off flavor. Didn’t really fit any style nicely either. Probably won’t be picking this up again. nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Cheap tasting golden colored ale. Vanilla notes are present, but seem very artificial. I drank a few sips and had to introduce it to my drain. amishcaravan (247) - Winona, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours a cloudy brown color. Kind of looks like apple cider. Thin head that disappears quickly. Scent is of mild vanilla. Taste consists of strong vanilla and little else. A little nutty. Lasting vanilla finish. Decent beer but it does taste like the vanilla is used to cover up the taste of cheap beer.
