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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

Poured from 12 oz can into 16 oz tulip glass, with bottling date of 11/14/17.

Look: Pours light bronze in color. No head, not bubbling.
Smell: Vanilla bean is upfront. Has a pleasant scent to it, but didn't get much other than vanilla.
Taste: Vanilla bean is the star of the show. Yup, pretty much all vanilla.
Feel: Light bodied, medium carbonation. Light on the tongue, smooth and crisp.
Overall: I enjoyed this. Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was surprised. I found it refreshing and a neat take on cream ale. I really enjoyed the vanilla, and was ok with it being the star of the show. Also, really affordable.

Pours a pale orange gold, with a two finger head. The retention is mediocre and after a quick couple of minutes there is nothing left. No lacing is present.

The smell is the highlight of this beer. The nose is dominated by a soft sweet vanilla. The downside is there isn't much else there on the nose.

The taste is dominated by the sweet vanilla that you get on the nose. Frankly, aside from the vanilla, there isn't much going on.

The feel is thinnish with a lighter carbonation.

This beer is essentially a one note song. Vanilla. I think it is an okay beer, but it doesn't really jump out. I can't say I'd get it again, nor recommend it.

Pours straw gold with decent head and medium lacing. Nose is very sweet vanilla and baked goods. The taste is very pleasing, a nice light vanilla creamy ale, carbonated lightly and just easy to consume. The key with this beer is its not over the top sweet, very well balanced and nice on a summer day.

You are hit with the vanilla aroma that rolls into the hoppiness of it. A caramel hue has hints of gold in the light, Great anytime but was exceptional on a hot summer day with friends.

A crystal clear, light golden/amber, mild carbonation rising, and a finger of white, creamy foam that sticks around; minor lacing. The aroma, is, almost like a liqueur, white bread crust, and lots of vanilla. The flavor, is, sweet, then, slightly bitter, then ends with a lasting mild sweetness. Vanilla is front and center, throughout; a bit of a doughy/bready quality in the flavor as well. No bitterness in the flavor, but the flavor isn't cloying at all. It is very cream soda like, and no alcohol in the nose or flavor. The feel, is, well carbonated, slightly sticky, and dry on the finish, with medium thin body, but, not watery, at all. Overall, if you like vanilla in your brews, you may love this ale. Good stuff.
