From: Costco in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey, golden, straw, semi-clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki tan head that withered away fairly quickly. A good deal of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average wet watery lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.53)

Smelled honey, vanilla, cream, sweet sugary corn, caramel, light grape and some rye malts. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was much, much better. Got vanilla cream, caramel, honey, vanilla extract, grass, Cream Soda and amber malts. Reminded me of a very good American Adjunct Lager. (Taste - 4.00)

Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, sweet finish. Something slightly off late on the tongue, but still a nice feel. (Feel - 3.94)

A very good cream ale. I don’t know how many I’ve rated so far, but this one went down easy. Close to an AAL in my opinion, but not quite. Sweet, sugary, vanilla goodness. (Overall - 3.90)

A gift to me from a friend living in San Diego. He's a good man.

Little gold with two-finger, white head into an Allagash glass. The nose is a soft, pretty vanilla coupled with a touch of fresh fruit.

Damn -- this tastes like cream soda. I don't know what else to say other than this is an alcoholic version of cream soda. Even better, though, is there is just enough bitterness from keeping this from becoming too sweet and cloying. A nice vanilla note, however, lingers a few seconds.

This is quite tasty if you are into cream soda, which I am. Very well-balanced. Light to medium bodied. Delicious, and something a little different for warmer whether beyond the session IPAs, wheat beers, etc.
