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.

Poured a beautiful deep orange/amber with a thin ring of whit head. It looks pretty good, not at all like any form of adjunct lager. Scent is very sweet, with heavy notes of cream, maize and sweet malt. It's a simple, yet pleasant scent, like a cream soda, or vanilla soda. Flavor follows the nose, very sweet. Heavy sweet cream flavors and vanilla, laid over a solid backbone of sweet malt and maybe some maize adjuncts, with a moderate level of floral and earthy hops that balance the sweetness. The end of the sip and the aftertaste are slightly bitter, especially for the beer's 21 IBUs. It's unique, has a nice combination of sweet and bitter and the vanilla notes are excellent. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It drinks smooth and creamy, as it should. Quite an excellent mouthfeel. I like this beer a lot. It has a nice flavor, that's sweet without being cloying and balances in some bitterness. It has a pleasant vanilla heavy scent and an excellent medium bodied creamy mouthfeel. I'd drink this one again.
