A good shade of pale with a small white head. I give them marks for getting a good color.

Your basic pale ale aroma (grassy hops, buttery malt) with nary a hint of vanilla. At least it gets the first part down pat.

We're talking now. My tongue detects a nice, mellow addition of vanilla bean that kind of works against the butteriness of the malt and grassy hops. It does add a new angle to the style.

Lingering buttery malt, grassy hops and vanilla bean make up the mouthfeel.

I give them credit for trying something different. I don't think I've had any pale ales infused with vanilla.

hmm, low review score.... not really excited about that tonight.
pale straw with minimal head, erratic lacing.
smells kind of vanilla-y, i suppose.
tastes like a subdued ale with some soft spices. vanilla subtle in the end taste. very interesting.
overall, not bad. a little 'twang' from the added ingredients but a decent drink. not into novelties, but i dont believe this was intended as a novelty but a serious endeavor. i like it. i think it is worthy although it's not a world class brew. i wonder what the other brews from this brewery are like...

I poured this bottle into a tulip style glass. I initially had a couple fingers of foam that dies down pretty quickly. The coloring on this beer is a ruddy orange.

Off the top you definitely pick up the vanilla from the beer. I also get some caramel in the nose on this one.

This beer works out to be a very easy sipper. The vanilla presence and sweetness can throw you. I feel a little bit of oily-ness in the mouth-feel.

This is a very original beer for me. Typically the vanilla comes from barrel aging, but this one is a little stronger and sweeter than most.

For something new, I recommend trying out this one. Plus, the bottle is pretty fun.
