$2 single from Lemon Tree. Smell has some roast malt and a touch of coffee, but also something metallic, like a rinsed glass (no, this glass was cleaned some time ago. A darker Vienna lager color, always a surprise to find a coffee or chocolate beer that isn’t pitch black. Taste comes in equal parts light roast coffee, and a fizzy beer. Certainly a unique combination, and I give it props for that. This could be the basis of a fine coffee soda, with malt instead of sugar, yes?

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.

12 ounce from Binny’s. Thin body. Big coffee taste and aroma. Some malt. No other features of a coffee beer. Decent.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a darker reddish amber with a thinner white head. The aroma gives a musty impression, which isn’t bad at all. It contains plenty of earthy malts and coffee, some smokiness, and hints of caramel. The taste is remains potent in coffee, which is balanced well with a lesser amount of caramel. Mild chocolate as well, while still containing a good amount of earthiness. The aftertaste is coffee and is subtle yet long lasting. This one is medium bodied, with a bit of a thinner, watery texture, with average carbonation. Its pretty good overall, but a little more straightforward and not terribly exciting.

2014 bottle. Pours a bright amber/brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a light malt with some vegetal/green pepper. Taste is toasty malt with the vegetal coffee that gives a light bitterness. A little residual sweetness. A medium, crisp, carbonated mouthfeel. Satisfies a summertime craving for a stout.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautifully clear garnet tinged mahogany with a small ecru head that settles to a thin film and ring, with little lacing. Aroma of spent coffee beans with a pleasant nuttiness, light roast and dark caramel. Taste has a nice smooth coffee flavor with an underlying nuttiness. Slight roastiness and a molasses sweetness with a hint of burnt character. Finishes semi dry with a little roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel and body ate light with a medium carbonation. I found this to be a very delicious alternative to other coffee beers you find. It’s meant to be a warm weather beer and I think they did a wonderful and interesting job going the California Common route. Flavors are complimentary and very well balanced. Wish we could get it in Missouri.
