This is probably the best cream ale I've ever had.
Pours a clear amber, with a 1.5 inch head, and a good amount of lacing.
Smells like vanilla, caramel, and toffee. Awesome!
The taste is similar, very creamy vanilla taste, coupled with a crisp, almost lager-ish feel, even though I know this is a cream ale. Very little hop character, just great spicing that turns the typical lemony wheat summer style on its head. Vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, and toffee galore, but not so overpowering- keeping it light and summer. It's truly alcoholic cream soda.
Light bodied, mouthfeel starts creamy but ends fairly crisp. There is a high level of carbonation.
This was awesome, one of the more inventive cream ales I've ever had.
