COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Lemon Peel and infused with Espresso
Giddy Up is a delicious juxtaposition of coffee, sustainably grown in Brazil and espresso-roasted locally, pressed into an ale with the deep color of a copper cowboy kettle. First whiff is full of sweeet caramel, toffee, latte. Then, a hint of lemon scone flavor from the addition of lemon peel. Body is creamy, resonant of espresso, yet the finish is bright, even a bit frisky. An ale to git along with...

Clear brownish amber with a small beige head. Coffee and toasted nuts aroma. Taste is malty with some nutty and coffee flavors; barely sweet and just a little bit more than that bitter. Aftertaste kind of cola-like. Medium bodied and a little dry.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of fresh coffee grounds, toffee, and roastyness. A little creamy, but kind of thin. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, and slightly acidic. Not bad, really

Hints of espresso in the aroma. Pours a hazy brown/red with an off white head and good lacing. Lots of coffee with a nutty character and a medium body.

Brown ale with the destinct smell of coffee. Looks almost like carbonated coffee too. Taste is mostly coffee with some caramel lurking in there. Never noticed the lemon the bottle said was in there but donít know that I really wanted to have lemon in my coffee so it was all good. Really good breakfast beer (yep drank them after eating my eggs and bacon). Hope to see this one come out in 6 packs so I dont have to keep buying samplers.

12oz bottle, pours a dark brown with a bit of light passing through the bottom of the glass. Aroma is coffee and chocolate and am unable to smell any lemon. Light mouth with sweet coffee and a bit of tartness balancing out the back end. Itís unique.

ben4321 (3824) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from a Specís, 9/24/13

Aroma: The aroma is a mix of coffee and toffee malts with some lemon zest
Appearance: It pours a reddish-brown color with a tan-brown head and average lace
Flavor: Flavor-wise, the mix is the same, it is malty, with some coffee, and lemon too
Palate: The body is light-medium, not watery at all, and it has a decent overall feel
Overall Impression: This one delivers what is describes in the description. It doesnít sound like it would work well at all, but it kind of does. Odd and interesting. Worth trying too, just not necessarily 100% my cup of tea...

Nothing wrong with that! Itís actually a pretty good ale, and I like the nice light body and rich coffee flavor. Aroma is great: strong brewed coffee aroma. The finish is nice too: dry, coffee, and a faint smoothness...is there a market for breakfast beers yet?
