I was expecting something a bit sweeter with this, and this is definitely not it...

It all started well enough - looked great in the glass with it's yellow colored liquid, orange highlights, with thin foam and no lacing. The smell was by far the best attribute of this beer - a strong and slightly sweet smell of marshmallows - mouthwateringly delicious. The mouthfeel was decent enough too - light, carbonated, and surprisingly dry - from the first sip to the last. This leads me to the taste, which I had hoped would have been sweet, but was far from it. As advertised, this just wasn't what I was expecting. Overall, not a bad brew, actually solid enough as a blonde ale, just not sweet enough given all the markings on the label...

Lively carbonated, light yellow looking, & vanilla scented candle type of aroma on the nose. Mmm it does taste sort of like a rice krispie treat snack especially on the finish that is where that vanilla is left on your mouth. It is sweet tasting, but I don't think it is overly sweet like some people are describing the flavor to be. I don't have a problem drinking all 22 ounces of this in 1 to 1 & 1/2 hours. I am not picking up on the rice. Rice is not very bold tasting so there is no surprise there. This is good, but I do like the strawberry shortcake wheat wine a little more. This beer needs a more yellow cake like type of mouthfeel to make this beer better in my opinion. Overall, the addition of the rice & vanilla does kick this blonde ale up a notch. I don't love it but I do like it a lot. I am thinking high B grade on this one. NO DATE on the bottle btw. Cheers! B (85-89) score range

A: Poured into a snifter to a light straw gold topped by a dense two finger head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of vanilla and marshmallow with some citrus notes
T: Taste is sweet and marshmallow like on entry with a little vanilla and an almost rice like character on the palate. Swallow is more marshmallow and a little vanilla along with that rice not and a little citrus
M: This beer has a fairly light body which is close to being watery without crossing that line. The carbonation on the beer is slightly prickly and it has a refreshing finish.
O: Overall this isn't a bad beer at all but it does leave a little to be desired. The flavors are interesting but it would have been better for them to be a little more forward and for the base beer to bring a little more to the party.

Smells like bubblegum, citrus, yeast, vanilla
Taste is just like rice crispies, vanilla and marshmallows. Little malt in the finish. Very light and drinkable.
