Pours a slightly hazy, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong vanilla, cream, slight pale malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of citrus hops. Fits the style of a Cream Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong vanilla, cream, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and hint of hops. Overall, much stronger body than I've encountered in past Cream's. Cream's aren't my favorite style, but this one I really enjoyed.

Served on tap, at the brewery, in a pint glass. Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Produced a small white head, featured average head retention and a slight amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma of this cream ale was very nice, full of vanilla and some pale malt. Light in body, this cream ale was smooth and easy to drink. Nice amount of vanilla, some sweet cream, sweet malted grain and a slight suggestion of hops. Decent session beer, an entry level craft beer style- overall average, Prost!.
