look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Appearance - The color is mid-amber color with a thick, one finger high off-white creamy head of almost indiscernibly small bubbles. Although there was a little cloudiness at first (think "alive inside", sort of like Guinness) it settled after about 30 seconds. Bottom line, this beer looks fantastic.
Smell/Taste - The smell is of sweet caramel and vanilla. The taste echoes the rich vanilla, as well as burnt malts. It also finishes on a definite "cream ale" note, coating the palate in lactose and I hint of bitterness that I'm finding very pleasant.
Drinkability - The carbonation is pretty light and I wouldn't exactly call this watery, but I'm not struggling whatsoever to put it down. To be honest I'm trying to pace myself before another sip, but I could definitely see the appeal fade after one or two.
Conclusion - It could just be because I don't have a lot of experience with cream ales, milk stouts, etc, but I think the creamy texture and taste of this brew is totally enchanting. Recommended; B

It came in a nice can. I like the cans appearance. It's golden in color with very little head. I might have kept it in the freezer too long. Had a little ice. Roughy an hour and a half. It had very little smell. Taste is decent. Expected more from a creme ale. Not bad though. I would drink this beer again.
