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.

Steady, even flavor. Tastes exactly like it should and as I hoped it would. Has nice soap sudsy head and mild hint of vanilla. Goes down easy and I don't mind it as a session beer. I really like it and so do the ladies who have sampled it.

Pretty smooth day time beer. Nice clear golden pour and a hint of vanilla to set a palate right.

This is a light and bubbly beer that pours an almost neon yellow with a tall but airy head. It smells like sour, artificial vanilla and tastes about the same. The label describes it as having a cream soda taste, and I definitely can't disagree, though it tastes a bit like cream soda with added alcohol rather than a cream soda inspired beer.

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.

Very light and balanced, vanilla bean jumps at you and cleanses out well, dry finish, easy drinking for summer

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.

Poured a beautiful deep orange/amber with a thin ring of whit head. It looks pretty good, not at all like any form of adjunct lager. Scent is very sweet, with heavy notes of cream, maize and sweet malt. It's a simple, yet pleasant scent, like a cream soda, or vanilla soda. Flavor follows the nose, very sweet. Heavy sweet cream flavors and vanilla, laid over a solid backbone of sweet malt and maybe some maize adjuncts, with a moderate level of floral and earthy hops that balance the sweetness. The end of the sip and the aftertaste are slightly bitter, especially for the beer's 21 IBUs. It's unique, has a nice combination of sweet and bitter and the vanilla notes are excellent. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It drinks smooth and creamy, as it should. Quite an excellent mouthfeel. I like this beer a lot. It has a nice flavor, that's sweet without being cloying and balances in some bitterness. It has a pleasant vanilla heavy scent and an excellent medium bodied creamy mouthfeel. I'd drink this one again.

Tastes like a dry cream soda with a bit of bitterness. Fuller bodied than a cream soda which would make this a nice choice when you want to fill that itch.
