Ballast Point Calm Before the Storm

This 5.5% ABV cream ale with vanilla and coffee is from the Ballast Point Brewing Company of San Diego, California.

The beer pours an orange honey in color. There is a relatively short head of white foam. The aroma is straight up vanilla and coffee, blending in with the malt to give a light bourbon-like note. The taste follows the aromas directly. The beer drinks easy, a touch of smooth, a touch of carbonation. The finish is dry with light to moderate bitterness. This is straightforward, and enjoyable.
