Sweet vanilla smell along with grain and caramel malt, feel is strangely thin, but creamy at the same time, taste is light grainy malt with prominent sweet vanilla bean and dries up in the finish, confusing, did not really enjoy.

Comes as advertised. It's a creamy, smooth ale with mild vanilla overtones. Slightly cloud, pale gold color with lush head. Not bitter and not particularly overly carbonated. Light and easy drinking.

Clear coppery pour with a fine, right head. Big vanilla smell. Head lasts forever. Light beer flavor, but refreshing. Definite vanilla flavor as well. No hops to speak of, but they are there for a slight bitterness. Overall, a great summer beer and really good cream ale example. Just like it should be.

Glows a golden orange hue like a Jack o lantern in July. Smell is of malt grains and beautiful vanilla bean like Penelope Cruz vacationing in Madagascar. Taste is typical Cream Ale, but it’s the vanilla bean that makes a playa want to scream. Feel is light and smooth like that one time your put ice in your bong.

This one is a winner.

Currently a go to beer when it's hot outside from Mother Earth and their Cali Creamin'.

This beer pours a crystal clear, golden yellow with a thick, full head that leaves some spotty lacing.

The smell is a light and pleasant sweet vanilla, akin to a cream soda. A welcoming smell to this refreshing beer.

Taste is light and refreshing with the vanilla bean dominating on the front end and finishing dry, similar to a pilsner or lager.

Smells great like vanilla. Tastes too creamy and was kinda repulsive.

12 oz can with a BB date stamp bout 15 days in the future.
Pours with an amber body and a decent head. Little lacing.
This is a VANILLA cream ale, with prominent vanilla in both the aroma and the flavor. This has more than "Just a hint of vanilla", with vanilla lingering on and on in the aftertaste. Still, recommended for fans of mild ales with vanilla.

This is gonna sound gross, but it isn't. This is essentially cream soda mixed with beer. It's surprisingly refreshing though. Crisp, light, sweet. One or two on a hot day would be great. Not for everyone, but I like it when the mood strikes.

Poured from a small undated can into a 16 oz mug.
Look: light golden color, completely transparent, 2 fingers of white creamy head on the semi-aggressive pour; carbonation bubbles all over; lacing retention is minimal.
Smell: Light and pleasant, dominated by vanilla notes
Taste: Very refreshing and easy going on the taste. Vanilla dominates on the front end, really reminds you of cream soda; back end is more similar to pilsners.
Feel: Very light and refreshing, strong carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable, easy going cream ale, which goes especially, when drank between two heavier brews, but is also good on it's own.
