Lovely lovely nose of coffee and mild hops. Nice deep brown color. I was shocked to find out this was a lager since the malt/hop balance was so well done. The flavor is of coffee and top quality brown ale even though its a lager.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2016 12oz bottle from total wine and spirits. Murky copper with medium white head. Smells of grassy coffee and hints of metallic. Metallic flavor there at first but fades during the session , some roasted light grain notes and medium coffee. Simple finish, decent sweetness. Pretty light and refreshing for a coffee ale. But makes sense given the style combination.

Aroma and flavor is coffee, malts, mild chocolate and a bitter/medium complex of all of the above finish.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a Friday work day in an empty nest before a friends going away party. Appearance is an amber brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is rich in coffee with nice caramel / malty undertones, smell is nice and decadent without being too sweet. Taste goes down very nicely, definitely strong in coffee but crisp without being too bitter. I’m really liking this one.

Draft. Crystal clear golden amber color, tan head. Aroma of toasted caramel biscuit. Big coffee flavor, but both the body and the beery characteristics are preserved. Works for me.

Pours a clear pale golden color with off-white head. Not much coffee on the nose, a little green bell pepper though; follows onto the palate. Lingering malt on the finish.

Maybe the best lager I can remember. Pours amber with a creamy head. The aroma has coffee and malt. The flavor has the coffee and malt with enough hops to balance the sweetness. Very creamy on the tongue. Finishes both bitter and sweet, creamy and smooth. Outstanding.
