Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a copper color with amber hues and a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of caramel. Taste is caramel, vanilla, malts, some sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a good beer on this hot day.

On tap at Bar Louie in West Palm Beach. Dark Amber/red color, with no head. I assume it was poured poorly. Smells of sweet caramel candy. It tastes like a dessert. Unfortunately I had this after an IPA so I fear my palette may have been wrecked to taste this well. I tasted a strong caramel taste with a malty bread note midway. After taste is pleasant and sweet. This is a great if you want a light sweet beer!

Pours tan with frothy head. Minimal lacing. Smells of caramel sugar. Too sweet. Gentle mouthfeel is you can tolerate real sweetness.

Not terrible but not nearly as good as I was hoping. It almost tasted bitter, like it had a much higher ABV than it really did.

i like the idea, i was sold on the idea in fact, but the beer i think under delivers a little bit this time. it doesnt seem a whole lot like a cream ale as a base beer, almost amber in color, dark to say the least for the style, almost more like a cream soda than a cream ale there. the caramel is there, all form the grain i think, but its sweet and rich enough. the nose and taste mirror each other, rich but bubbly, and there is an obvious vanilla profile to it. i think it may even be brewed with vanilla. plenty of bubbles, but the sweetness lingers a little too long i think, and even half a can with my brother drinking the other half was enough for both of us. the idea rocks, but this needs to ferment down a little longer, if they let it climb up to around 6% abv i think it would be a radically better and more drinkable brew, as it stands, its a novelty and little else. that might be harsh, it probably accomplished its stated objective, but its a one and done for me just the same.

Got this beer at Longhorn Steakhouse, Palm Beach Florida when I asked for a craftbeer.

Copper colored, clear beer with a thin white head.

Nose: A LOT of caramel malt! Vanilla, brown sugar and syrup.
Taste: Caramel, toffee, malt, marzipan and vanilla beans.
Body: Medium body with light carbonation.

I had this beer before and under the meal (20 oz Longhorn Porterhouse) and I must say I liked it! Creamy, soft and a little sweetness. Great taste for a beer with only 5% ABV.
