From the tap, it pours a pale gold with a small head. The vanilla scent fills the nostrils and entices...so long as you are a vanilla fan...The taste definitely follows the nose. Do NOT buy if you are NOT a vanilla fan!

This is one tasty ale. Pours an ever-so-slightly cloudy amber/red color with a medium sized white head. Smell is a strong creamy vanilla. This beer is easy to drink, but so strong with vanilla that you really can't taste any other flavors - though I picked up hints of malt in the after taste. This is new for me, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like vanilla.

No bottle date enjoyed September 20, 2015 in a pint glass

Look - Thick white head. Have to try to keep it from exploding. Thick bubbles. A lot of lacing. Murky grapefruit like yellow body.

Smell - Vanilla.

Taste - Vanilla. Ale. Cinnamon.

Feel - Not too carbonated. Creamy.

Overall - Not complex but a good flavor for low ABV.

Appearance: Cloudy golden, with a rich white head and simplistic tree-line lacing.

Aroma: Vanilla cream soda all the way, straight up!

Taste: Light in body, sweet vanilla accents are definitely up-front yet not overbearing. This seems to be a novelty beer, attempting to recreate a cream soda in beer form but neglecting the beer aspect. This one lacks in complexity for sure.
