4.3/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours an orange color, with a little head that disappears rather quickly. It is clear with little carbonation. (3.5/5)

Smell - Smells sweet. A smell very similar to that of cream soda. Lots of vanilla smell (4.75/5)

Taste - Very smooth and sweet tasting. No bitter aftertaste. I did not notice any strong after taste. This beer is very sweet but not necessarily due to a strong vanilla taste. (4.5/5)

Mouthfeel - Crisp, medium carbonation. Did at times feel a little thick. Nothing really of note (3.5/5)

Overall - Great beer. If you like a sweet beer then try this out.

I tried this because it seems to be a popular item where I work and I've heard good things about Mother Earth Brew Co. It pours a nice light orange color with a modest head. The smell is mild and pleasant. The initial aroma is faint vanilla that gives way to an earthy smell I can't really define. The taste is heavy on the malt with a subtle--yet noticeable--vanilla flavor. The taste finishes off with a distinct bready characteristic. The breadiness in the aftertaste is unique, but I can't really put my finger on what it is. Overall, this is a solid, refreshing beer that tastes a lot like cream soda. A perfect beer for a hot day, or if you need a break from some of more robust ales out there. (in fact, I bought this cause all I had was Mission's Dark Seas Imperial Stout, but didn't want anything heavy).

Served in a chilled beer mug.

A: Pours a dark, golden brown color. Opacity is clean and bright. Head is very thin, dissipates quickly. Lacing is moderate.

S: Nose is grassy, malty with a faint vanilla presence. There's a lot of earth in the aroma as well.

T: Very malty, low bitterness,moderate amount of vanilla throughout. I get cream notes at the finish. Very "bready" aftertaste, consistent with the strong malt bouquet. This is a very sweet beer.

M: Moderate carbonation, slight milkiness with low viscosity. Nothing special here, but good.

Overall: I wish the vanilla and cream were more pronounced, especially on the nose. The smell is very earthy and grassy, and unexpected for a vanilla cream ale. This is an extremely malty brew, almost cloyingly sweet. While not a "WOW" brew, it was enjoyable and I would drink again, especially due to its easy availability.
