hopscotch (11087) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewer’s Festival 2013... Clear, straw-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head that sticks around for a good while. I’m getting no aroma from this brew at all – none – zero – zip – zilch. At least it’s inoffensive. Light-bodied and watery with moderate carbonation. Tastes like seltzer water with a gentle splash of vanilla and the faintest sweetness. Short, crisp, mildly sweet finish.

Pours a thin bodied, light colored ale. Mouth feel is slightly creamy. Overall a yeasty, balanced ale.

heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2012
A bright medium gold colored brew with a thin off white head. Sugar cookies! This is mostly what I smell. There is also some hay. This tastes a lot more dry than I expected. There is also lots of wood and some hints of the sugar cookie character, but it is very light and in the finish. A little bit herbal, this one is decent. The vanilla is barely detected. Not one of Thomas Creek’s best efforts.

Pours a golden yellow color with a thin white head. Solid lacing. Aroma of grain, citrus, and hint of vanilla. Creamy mouth feel with citrus, vanilla, and a hint of grain flavor. Nice beer.

12 ounce bottle
As far as cream ales go this one was not too bad. That said it was hardly remarkable. For a simple session beer it gets the job done. Maybe I would pick up another if they were on sale but there are a number of more local options instead.

Aroma / Appearance - The body looks like carbonated vanilla cream soda with a pillowy soft head. Vanilla extract, cream filling from a custard donut, and other sweet aspects smell more like a fountain drink than a beer.

Flavor / Palate - Vanilla and sugar blend into a saccharine combination that refreshed the palate. As delicate as it is the taste ranges from inoffensive to just enough flavor to avoid being dull. This is a fine cream ale for the most part.

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours with a very thick head. Hints of vanilla to the those are inviting, but the taste ends up being a relatively low quality cream ale with some slight sweetness.

Patrickctenchi (6587) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours slightly hazy, lemon-gold with a tall frothy/lumpy head. Scent is faint....apple...no vanilla to speak of...sweet grain. Taste is slightly sour grainy malt....light. ...maybe a touch of vanilla as it warms (though, not much) It’s ok, but not at all what the name/description leads you to believe. Aftertaste is a bit unpleasant.

alogan97 (71) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Neutral aroma, no real hints of vanilla. Golden hay color. Upon taste you get a hint of vanilla in your nose. Other than that, this beer has mote of an grainy flavor, with a distinct aftertaste.

kjohns21 (17) - - JUL 29, 2012
No real aroma. Appearance is average. Taste is average like any run of the mill ale but with a slight hint of vanilla. Nothing special and very one-note but overall okay and enjoyable.
