It looks like the soda it's supposed to resemble. Caramel/straw, small active carbonation, and no head whatsoever. The smell wants to remind you of a cream soda, but what it mostly smells like is cheap alcohol. The taste is somewhat better: you could almost think you ARE drinking a decent cream soda until the back end, when cheap booze rears its ugly head again. Mouthfeel is strange. It's insubstantial, and a little slick. I guess it doesn't have the syrupy feel you'd expect in a soda. Overall, I guess this is an ok way to quickly put down a 5.5% ABV repeatedly if that's your only consideration. It could almost remind you of a bad cream soda. But it's not much of an experience for a beer.

It tastes pretty good, It's not bad a kick-off to your night but i couldn't drink more than one of them in a night but the same goes for any hard soda type of drink. I usually only buy these kind of drinks as a one-off sort of thing but i might consider getting another one in the future.

This was a recent bottle from my backlog that I had put in the reefer for a tad later, but after reviewing JP's Casper White Stout & hearing from someone else that it reminded them of a Cream Ale, the light bulb came on for this dimbulb & I decided to drink it next.

From the bottle: "*Soda-licious you'll love it!"; "*Made you look!"

I was disheartened to discover that it was one of those screwed-up screw-top caps. In fact, it made me angry enough to perform an aggro pour following the Pop! of the cap! It really did not make a difference as the head fizzed & popped as I poured, acting more like pop than ale & not leaving any trace of head for me. Color was solidly Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity & I was put in mind of BUPGOO!, a Mad magazine advert for a powder to add to milk to make it look like beer so that it will be more palatable to the kiddies. Hee hee. The nose was sweet and very much of vanilla. much like A-Treat Cream Ale as a kid. Ha! Mouthfeel was kinda thin, not exactly watery, but nowhere near medium. More pop-like characteristics. The taste was sugary sweet, very much of vanilla, but unfortunately, it was a one-dimentional one-trick pony. Finish was cloyingly sweet & not my bag at all. Yes, it mimicked the soda pop that it was meant to evoke, but I was certainly not its target audience. Oof.

This tasted nothing like cream soda. It smells okay but still doesn't smell like cream soda. When I tasted it all I could taste was burnt butterscotch. There was some sweetness but it was primarily a very odd taste that I can only compare to Burnt butterscotch.

Much better than their root beer. Not overly sweet, would be decent as just a normal soda. Hard to have more than one though.
