On Tap at Tasting Room. Cool nano brewery in a small business park outside of the Miramar Air Station in San Diego.

A-Very cloudy brown color. Reminded me of Baileys Irish Cream a little. Nice head with average lacing.

S-Smelled fairly sweet and of malts, very little alcohol or hops came through on the nose.

T-Cold from the tap seemed to mask a bit of the flavor. As it first hits the palate, its hardly distinct but it gets better near the end. Average hop profile.

M-Very smooth beer with a very good medium body. Could enjoy a few of these with a meal.

O-Solid beer overall, although I wish the initial flavors were more distinct. Because they did not really stand out to me, I can't say it was anything more than an average beer. I enjoyed it though, would buy a growler to take home.

On tap at Hess. Vienna Cream Ale.

A: Dark amber with a frothy beige head. Nice retention and scattered lacing.

S: Notes of corn blend with vanilla (?) and baked bread. It's quite estery, exhibiting a mixture of apple and pear.

T: Light vanilla with orange and corn. I get a little apple and pear as well. Well balanced with a smooth bready and fruity finish.

M: Lower medium in body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and silly.

Overall: An interesting mixture of characteristics that work well together. Unlike any other Cream Ale I've had, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Had this on tap at the brewery.

A: The beer pours a hazy dark golden amber brown, with a white cream colored head that rose a good inch and half, and retainded well. Average lacing.

S: Very light sweet toffee malt, light citrus hops, and biscuits.

T: Creamy sweet toffee malt, caramel, toast, light grass. Cold, maybe a bit too much, but it's the lightest beer they pour anyway, and it was a warm day. Alcohol is not noticeable.

M: Medium to high carbonation, but smooth, and slightly sweet.

O: I enjoyed it, it was good. Lager's, to me, are generally light, simple, refreshing, but with light flavor. In contrast to the simple part, this beer actually has a lot more going for it than is typical, but is still smooth, and refreshing, and creamy.
