This beer is a fun mind teaser! Bright golden body that is smoothed out by the wheat and flaked barley and yet there is this flavor that we all love……coffee! Robust notes of roasted beans bring this fun ale to a new level with tricking the mind and palate between flavors and coffee.
Malts: gwm 2 row, Pilsen, wheat, flaked barley, munich and c-15

Pint at Thompsons Brewpub in S.Salem
Pours a clear bright golden colour with a small creamy white head.
Aroma like many McMens beers is slight but pleasing honeyish malt tones and a touch of medium roast coffee...some wheat too. Nice.
Taste is like the aroma but a notch or two more robust..i found the coffee tones intrigueing with a lighter style.
Palate is probably the best thing about this beer very smooth and still extreme drinkable.
Nice beer here..hope its here for the late spring!
