3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

L: Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a very creamy head and quite a few fingers of lacing, definitely served on nitro.

S: Mellow vanilla, blends with sweet grain and a little bit of light lemon.

T: Mellow vanilla, mixed with toasted sweet grain and a light lemon.

F: A little watery but still feels creamy.

O: Wish the vanilla was a little more evident but still a tasty cream ale.

Fantastic smell and taste. This beer was a big surprise at Union Station in Denver. With the nitro stout the feel is fantastic and the flavor does not disappoint. Highly recommend this beer!

Poured on nitro.

Pours yellow with a frothy white head. Smells and tastes like a vanilla creamsicle. Real vanilla here, no extract. There is the slightest amount of hops to allow you to notice them, which help cut into the sweatness some, but this beer definitely does fall on the sweet, dessert side of things. Best enjoyed one pour at a time, a couple pints of this would be too much for me. Creamy, fuller bodied. Overall, I always get sucked into trying vanilla flavored beers even though I hate them 99% of the time. This one fell into 1%. This was a great a beer and perhaps the best vanilla flavored beer I have tried. Nitro fit this beer perfectly as well. Would definitely drink this one again.

really enjoyed this. definitely one of the most vanilla/creamy cream ales I've ever had the pleasure of sipping on. This beer really brings out vanilla like no other - reminded me of some of the best vanilla porters, as far as sweet/cream/vanilla is concerned. I feel like this is one of my favorite 'surprised by' beers of the year so far. really enjoyed it.

An extremely creamy, vanilla packed cream ale. Stayed hazy and thick-looking for several seconds after pouring. Genuine (not artificial) vanilla is oozing from this beer, walking the line between enjoyable beer and cloyingly sweet desert drink. Probably a bit too much for some but I really enjoyed the boldness of this beer. Worth seeking out.

the latest and greatest from these guys, its a vanilla cream ale, served on nitro, and its absolutely fantastic, maybe their best beer to date. it has a beautiful honey color to it with a super creamy pure white nitro head and a lot of carbonation, its perfectly clear, and it smells like whole vanilla pods. its a bit sweet on the palate, and as much as i like the real vanilla flavor and everything else going on, i could really only have a couple of them before it gets to the point where the sweetness is too much. the vanilla is real authentic though, and the mouthfeel rocks hard. its smooth and thick, palate coating but down easy, and its unlike any other cream ale that ive had before. there is some yeast flavor in here, which keeps it beer for me, much needed with all the vanilla happening. its soft and delicious, really different, and very well made. the nitro format really makes it too. highly recommended, one of the best beers to have come from this place so far.
