3.31/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - a slight haze to an otherwise plain straw-colored pour. A thin, kinda creamy head holds well , some good sticky lacing all around.

Aroma - definite vanilla presence, comes across a little candy-ish. Not necessarily bad, though not necessarily legit, fwiw.

Taste - the grain is pretty non-intrusive, basically nothing more than a canvas for the vanilla flavor and some faint balancing hops that are a little twangy. As a vanilla fan, I like it but wish it had more earthy vanilla character.

Mouthfeel - average body, crisp and refreshing, not too heavy.

Overall - enjoyable beer that I could session with, more so in the summer months as an offset to the hoppy pale ales that abound.

2.79/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.5 A: Lightly hazed yellow orange color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a tad below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

2.5 S: The vanilla is about the only thing you will find. It covers up anything else that might be in here. It's not quite as bad as I would have guessed, but it still isn't very good unless you are bat shit crazy over vanilla.

2.75 T: The taste is better than the nose simply because it tastes like beer. Again lots of vanilla. Neutral maltiness, which I'm happy to find.

3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess.

2.75 D: It's not good, but at least it isn't terrible.

Name and label looked cool, I know, I know, you should never judge a book by its cover. Nonetheless, I thought there could be something nice here, with a vanilla twist. Not so much, it is a standard beer, nothing more, nothing less. It does have a nice amber color. I don't really taste the vanilla, very, very feint, nor the caramel as advertized. Sorry Ass Kisser, there are better beers out there. This is my first, pass recommendation. :(
