Appearance - a slight haze to an otherwise plain straw-colored pour. A thin, kinda creamy head holds well , some good sticky lacing all around.

Aroma - definite vanilla presence, comes across a little candy-ish. Not necessarily bad, though not necessarily legit, fwiw.

Taste - the grain is pretty non-intrusive, basically nothing more than a canvas for the vanilla flavor and some faint balancing hops that are a little twangy. As a vanilla fan, I like it but wish it had more earthy vanilla character.

Mouthfeel - average body, crisp and refreshing, not too heavy.

Overall - enjoyable beer that I could session with, more so in the summer months as an offset to the hoppy pale ales that abound.
