COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Looks can be deceiving! This satisfying simulation of self exploration is sure to surprise your pallet. It’s an extremely smooth sessionable coffee blonde. So light a candle and enjoy the adventure this beer has to offer.

tmoreau (3568) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Shared 12 oz. can poured to snifters, showing a clear, light gold, almost straw color, with a bubbly white layer of head foam, and light spots & strands of lacing. The nose was expressive mocha scent, with caramel sweetness and vanilla. Light bodied, with okay carbonation, the taste was similar notes, but didn’t at all match the aroma’s intensity, kind of as an after thought. Pleasantly sessionable, nonetheless.

RobertDale (5263) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Shared bottle. Pours a pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of coffee and malt. Taste is coffee, malt, chocolate, vanilla, and some fruit. Just a one time thing for me.

seuinoz (225) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Aroma is freshly ground coffee. Appearance is blonde in color. Taste is coffee with a hint of hops. Sits great on the palate not harsh but sits very clean. Just alot of coffee smells with this beer.

eaglebones (104) - Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours light golden color with short-lived, thin white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and bread. Taste is citrus and hints of coffee and chocolate. Kind of an odd bread-like aftertaste. Interesting and enjoyable beer overall.

DCLawyer (2443) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle share at the WWWW beer tasting at iphonephan’s. Pale gold with small offwhite head. Strong coffee grounds with some lite malt. Not a fan.

[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ @tasting ][ $0 ][ Shot glass ][ 08.15.15 ]
huge white head lasts, large bubbles atop hazy straw. Green nose, beany but no roast, detergent-esque as a result. More roast to balance the bean in flavor, creamy vanilla as well, soft with appropriate sweetness and decent malt balance. Flavor a huge improvement, push through the nose.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Een licht kruidig Amerikaans biertje. Eenvoudig te drinken wegens de lage alcoholpercentage.
