COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our most popular beers ever, this vanilla cream ale has a malty backbone thanks to some flaked corn and honey malt. Just a hint of vanilla adds depth to the flavor and makes this beer a medium bodied cult classic. Its sure to woo the ladies, but also flavorful enough to satisfy the dudes. Youll swear you were drinking a cream soda...but tricks are for kids.

Yes marshmallow cream. If you like that type. A little thick for a cream ale. But not too bad. Couldnt drink the whole 22, just because its not my style. But good beer if this us your cup of brew.

Sweet and smooth cream Ale with honey and sweet caramel corn flavours and big biscuity aftertaste. It reminds me of my great grandfather who would eat Weet bix with honey and warm water. As a little kid I thought that was weird. This tastes like that breakfast.

Yellow-gold with a quickly disappearing white head. Faint aroma of vanilla and cereal. Definite vanilla flavor - though it comes across as artificial. Appropriately low bitterness and light body. Would have much preferred this without the vanilla and just as a cream ale. Oh well.

Light grainy bready corn malt aroma with subtle vanilla Pours a clear amber color with quickly disappearing white head. Grainy corn malt flavor with more vanilla flavor than in aroma. Medium light bodied with medium high co2, lingering vanilla bean flavor. Some slickness on the tongue. Enjoyable beer I might prefer it more without the vanilla though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

220217. Can from Bucket Boys. Dont see a lot of cream ales here in Australia, which is a shame as it is a good beer style. Sweet vanilla finish to this beer makes for a nice change. Great looking can and great beer as well.

On tap at Mother Earth, pours a clear straw yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out creamsicle and straw. Flavour is similar, with creamsicle, straw and cereal malt. Light sweetness on the finish. Better than the average cream ale, but thats not saying much.

Sampled on draught at Todd Englishs P.U.B. At Aria in Las Vegas. Clear golden colour. Taste is vanilla with a hint of heather honey. Very smooth and creamy, but no bitterness to speak of. A beer designed for ladies who dont much like beer, I suspect.

First sip, tastes like a cream soda, not too overpowering, delicious. I couldnt drink a lot of these, too sweet, but a great treat to have one.

It smells like crisp cream soda, with a vanilla flavor. Clean and delicious.

Can from the craft beer advent calendar courtesy of Pix. Cheers! Blond with a white head. Metallic grain aroma with a touch of vanilla. Lots of vanilla in the flavour along with spice and grain. Some creaminess. A bit artificial feeling. OK.
