This beer is seriously lacking on any distinguishing features. It's bland in color and taste and I can't smell a thing when I drink it. It's not bad to drink, but it certainly isn't something I'd buy again.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, pale malt, slight hops, hint of vanilla, and a hint of tea. Fits the style of a Cream Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of vanilla, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of caramel malt, and slight hops. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and body.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. A golden yellow brew with a sweet vanilla aroma and taste. A nice mild bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation that was well balanced with the vanilla flavor. A good session beer.

12 oz. bottle into pint glass. Poured all head. I got a bit of vanilla, but nothing overwhelming. The overall score of "okay" is fitting.

If this was part of a blind taste test beside um, "light beers", I'm not sure that I could tell the difference. Very pale yellow in color. Watery taste, no hint of vanilla.
