I`ve had this beer multiple times, and thought it would be a good beer for my first review.
Appearance - Pleasant, not much head at all, less than a finger. Minimal to no lacing.
Smell - Vanilla with a hint of nuttiness. Not too bad, but for some reason I`ve had better pours.
Taste - Maple notes up front, desolving into vanilla notes the deeper you get into it. There`s a bitter note there as well.
Mouthfeel - Medium amounts of carbonation, and a crisp and clear, slightly bitter feel.
Overall - Very drinkable. The vanilla is really the key here, it is what makes it as palatable as it is. I most likely will order again next time I am at the pub that offers this beer, seeing as it`s the best one on tap. I will order it soon, especially if I am having a dessert.
Serving type: on-tap
