3.25/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #62 (Mar 2012):

LOOK: Clear golden, minimal lace

SMELL: Vanilla, cookie dough, fresh bread, clean, faint alcohol

TASTE: Mild vanilla, bready malt, muted hops, husk, carbonic, dry finish

A plain Pale Ale with a timid addition of vanilla makes for a very middle-of-the-road brew. The aroma comes across more appealing than the flavor. Perhaps a better fit with a meal rather than on its own? One and done.

3.31/5  rDev +10.3%
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.
