This tastes like what an American pale ale ice cream float should taste like! Plenty hoppy too.

I can't decide if this has more of an ice cream or marshmallow vibe. Either way it's a remarkable and delicious beer and I am excited to try some of the other variations now.
Creamy beer you say?

I've had a few of these dessert inspired beers now and what I've learnt is the dark, chocolate styles are a real accomplishment and beautiful but the lighter ones don't fair quite as well.

They really nail the vanilla flavour here buy it's not the creamy cornish vanilla you are hoping for. It's just a pale ale with some vanilla extract. Not terrible just a bit of a anti-climax.
