Pours a medium brown with 1 1/2 fingers worth of tan head that quickly thins out. Smell is sweet like caramel and a little bit of alcohol. Caramel and vanilla are very present in the taste especially as it sits in the glass for a few minutes. The feel isn't quite medium with little carbonation. A very drinkable beer, good flavor. I would drink this again.

Very fresh 12 oz can purchased and consumed in south FL, with a canned on date about 10 days earlier.
Aroma: sweet; a somewhat incoerent mix of vanilla and caramel with a hint of hops.
Flavor: moderately sweet but not cloying, with some mild bitterness in the aftertaste. A more uniform bitter-sweet balance would be better. Caramel/toffee and vanillla dominate.

Feel: medium body and carbonation.

O: decent dessert beer but may not satisfy for long as a session ale.

Due South Brewing Co. "Caramel Cream Ale"
12 fl. oz. can, ink jet coding is illegible, running off of the side of the can
$2.29 @ Knightly Spirits, Orlando, FL

Look: Hazy ruby-russet body beneath a foamy head of yellowed froth. Fairly decent head retention and lacing.

Smell: Not surprisingly caramelish with a hint of vanilla, but also a touch fruity as well (some red berries, some dark skinned fruit).

Taste: Again, as the name suggests, the caramel comes through clearly, as does the vanilla, and the fruit remains. There seem to be some floral, leafy, and subtly herbal hops in the background as well. It's sweet, but not cloying (there's not enough body for that to happen), and a moderate bitterness balances it and helps dry it in the finish.

Feel: Light-medium in body with a delicately crisp median carbonation.

Overall: Fairly unique and interesting, and sweetish while retaining some drinkablity. It kind of straddles the fence between being a standard beer and a dessert beer. More than just a curiosity, it's probably worth trying.

I bought a can of the Caramel Cream Ale whilst in Fort Lauderdale to take on a Cruise. The beer poured a dark amber with offwhite head and decent of lace. The scent was caramel. The taste was sweet caramel with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is lighter in body good carbonation. Overall it was too sweet to session, but worth a try.
