On-nitro at the source, served in a 16oz pint glass.

A- Pours a very clear golden color, a thick three to four finger white foamy head forms that slowly recedes to a thin layer, fairly minimal carbonation.

S- Nice sweet vanilla bean presence, a little bit of cream, lactose sugars, and a grainy/wheat base. Not overly aromatic but nice balance and decent for style.

T- Vanilla bean, light wheat base, slight cream and lactose on the finish with a bit of a hop presence, lightly sweet. Haven't had the base beer but the vanilla seems to add a nice presence. Not my favorite taste for a beer in the world, but great for the style.

M- Definitely on the light side, the nitro adds a nice fluffy presence, very smooth and drinkable, not too much carbonation adding to the creaminess.

O- This wasn't my favorite beer in the world but was probably one of the better cream ales I've had. The vanilla added a nice lightly sweet presence that balanced with the cream. This is highly drinkable and tasted great on nitro but probably not my favorite style.

Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy honey color with the classic build up of the nitro head; the cap looks like a dollop of whipped cream; plenty of lacing action

Smell: Vanilla cream soda

Taste: Vanilla cream bold and brash with a touch of graininess in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body but quite creamy from the oats; gentle carbonation

Overall: I was not expecting much out of a cream ale but this is not an ordinary cream ale; this is what you always dreamed a cream ale might be

On Nitro Tap at the House of Brews in Jensen Beach, Fl.

A – Very light on the pour with the requisite fluffy white, nitro head you would expect.

S – Vanilla, vanilla and more vanilla. Sweet cream.

T – As you would expect it immediately floods the palate with a light vanilla taste. Not as strong as the aroma but it’s all over this one. Touch of milk and cream in the flavor. Just a tad bit malty to finish. Reminds me of a beer version of the soda from Stewart’s that is vanilla cream.

M – Creamy, slight carbonation, light to medium bodied. Leaves a lingering vanilla on the palate.

O – Easy drinker. If you like vanilla this one is all you. Breath in as you drink this one and it floods the senses with vanilla. Have I said vanilla enough? You get the picture. If you dislike vanilla, stay away.
