This cream ale pours dark amber gold with a thick fluffy white head with good retention. The aroma has sweet malt, and vanilla. It's exactly like a cream soda! The flavor has a vanilla bean front that moves to a smooth and sweet middle and then finishes up on an interesting soda cream finish. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. It is medium in body with a bubbly feel from the high carbonation. I also really like the addition of real Madagascar vanilla. The only downside is - it's exactly like a cream soda, and it's not to style for a standard cream ale. Overall, it's very thick, creamy and refreshing. It would be great way to quench your thirst on a hot summer day!
