Had on tap. For a style that does not bring about too much excitement, this cream ale gives me a little something to chew on. Literally, it had a pulpy and chewy quality to it. I just wish the flavor matched up to the beefy texture of the body. The vanilla played the lead, while the orange followed in the aftertaste, leading a to lighter taste. Felt mismatched. Ok but has potential to be a great cream ale if orange brought out more.
