A: Pale gold with a very thin, white head.
S: malty nose with a little earthy hop. Not a big nose with hops and malt about even.
T: clean and crisp, with slight malt sweetness and a crisp bitter finish. The bitterness is assertive but not overpowering. The malt notes are not big – not a lot of sweet corn or DMS. Hop bitterness medium to a shade above. Malt sweetness is low to moderate. Hops and malt are about even on the palate – no apparent corn flavor. Finish is predominately a faint sweetness balanced by hops.
M: Light, medium carbonation.
O: A higher quality lawnmower beer.

their website says that they started with a flavor profile, so i wonder if someone didn't make a play on cream ale versus cream soda.

from a can into a glass, it poured a clear, dark gold with a head that didn't linger or lace. decent carbonation. nothing about the nose really grabs me. it's balanced, but not really nuanced - i'm not getting layers. flavor is definitely vanilla - i keep looking for some sort of oak or barrel flavor, but that's probably because i'm not used to one without the other. mouthfeel was rich but not lingering.

it was good for being something different. i'd be pressed to find the right time or meal pairing for this one, and i wouldn't throw down 5 of these in one sitting, but i liked it.

A - Nice golden corn colored beer. Head was white and faded quickly.

Smell - A lot of vanilla in this one. It also has a little bit of the malty sweetness on the nose.

Taste - Surprising amount of vanilla. It is really good, but unexpected in a classic Cream Ale. A little bit of the corn-like and dms flavors.

Mouthfeel - not quite as dry with the vanilla flavor. Carbed up and still pretty quaffable though.

Overall - It was a very good, sessionable beer. A lot of vanilla, but balanced well with the subtle malts. A few of us drank more than one of these because the vanilla made it such a unique take on a lighter beer style and it wasn't imbalanced by any means.
