Vanilla Cream Ale 5.0% ABV | 20 IBU

The look on this one is a light, transparent golden color. It starts with a good inch thick of foamy head that quickly vanishes and has a very light lacing.

The smell immediately reminds me of a cream soda. It hits with tons of vanilla and almost nothing else can be picked up.

The mouth is almost thick and foamy to a point but very refreshing.

The taste on this one follows my nose. I am reminded of a cream soda that is full of vanilla. It hits home very light and smooth.

I enjoyed this beer quite a bit actually. It is light, refreshing, and ultimately a very easy beer to drink. I can’t get passed it but this beer really tastes like a cream soda to me which is by no means a complaint. Full of vanilla and easily goes down your gullet. I don't feel as if this is a beer you can crush a bunch of but it is absolutely a beer you have to get your hands on for a sample

I remember reading from people whose opinion's I respect about how this was the greatest cream ale ever made. Shit brah, this ain't even the best cream ale made in San Diego.

Pours a standard yellow with marks of dullardness and haze. 3/4" white head. Aroma smacks of ice cream.

Taste, I get the cream aspect, the vanilla and orange cream feels. Its there. Everything else about a beer seems to be nondescript or missing. Like, them hops, dat malt, this yeast. Which is fine, style being what it is and everything. Higher carbonation than average for a cream ale. I think these are plenty serviceable, especially come summertime where you have someone drinking with you that isn't into hoppy or sour beers, that really limits your options in hot weather.

I'm not sure what to think about this. It's very tasty. I just don't know if it's more of a added syrup taste or what. It does say vanilla bean and natural flavors though. It's definitely a desert beer as it is fairly sweet. Smell of cream soda. Taste of lots of vanilla and a little malt.

I had this on draft as a nitro beer. Gold in color with a half inch of creamy off white. The aroma was difficult to detect, but I got some light malt and vanilla. I'm tasting a burst of vanilla, sweet light malt, and corn. The mouth is creamy, smooth, and quaffable.

22oz bomber poured into a pilsner glass.

Look: Pours a clear amber/copperish color with a thin line of white head. Lots of carbonation seen in the glass.

Smell: Malt and yeast aromas are noticed first with subtle hints of vanilla.

Taste: Taste definitely follows the nose. Very subtle hints of vanilla. Not what I was expecting, but very crisp and easy to drink.

Feel: A medium body with plenty of carbonation. Coats the tongue and mouth well. Quite crisp, with a dry finish.

Overall: An easy to drink beer, not quite the taste I was expecting, but definitely one I'd buy again down the road.
