Looks and smells the part of a solid brown ale but looses me with the super thin feel and watery finish..

Not terrible but there are certainly lots of better brown ales out there.

12 ounce can, canned on 10/05/17. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy brown/copper color with about an inch light tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like vanilla, nuts, bready malt and toffee. Taste is similar to the aroma but there's also some dark breadiness and a bit of chocolate noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good, enjoyable brown ale. Glad I got to try this one, certainly worth trying if you've never had it before! $1.99 for a single can.

Good aroma. Really had me hopeful! Took a sip and initially was impressed, then it just kinda dropped off. Every sip is similiar, initial rush of flavor, then just whimpers out.
Still quite drinkable. Just so much promise initially, with no follow through.

Poured from a can - dark brown with reddish hues on the fringes accompanied by a dark tan head that clings to the glass but doesn't stay long. Very clear and light enough to see my fingers through my Belgian tulip glass.

Smells pretty darn good - definitely vanilla, with some vanilla and a touch of fruity dark malts.

Tastes much like it smells; vanilla dominates but takes on a twangy taste - not sure if it's extract or cheap vanilla beans. The beer tastes very clean and there really isn't much character to it other than the vanilla.

Mouthfeel/body is where this beer craps out - it is way thin and finishes too dry for a decent brown ale.

Overall I can see how this beer is very mass marketed and does well. It definitely has vanilla, is definitely brown but it lacks character and repeatability for anyone other than a Bud Light drinker looking to expand their horizons for the first time.

This is my first review, being new to the site and recently turning 21 I'm quite inexperienced, that being said you may want to take my review with a grain of salt. I have no craft beer experience.
Overall this beer was a good beer, the flavor was great. This beer is a brown ale aged on vanilla beans, however, I couldn't hint any out. The initial taste was great, but the finish left something to be desired.
I'm sure this beer would be a lot better on draft, I will be sure to try it given the availability!

This is a very good throw back beer. Drinkable and perfect for a cooler around a campfire. Finishes with a nice hint of vanilla.
