4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 12oz bottle poured into pint glass. One of a few different Odd Side beers my brother brought back for me on a recent Michigan trip. Pours a very hazy orange with a large two finger off white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is a little on the dank side. I?m getting bready malts, orange, grapefruit, and a hint of coffee. Taste is quite a bit different from the aroma. Citrusy, vanilla (didn?t expect that), toasted white bread, caramel malts, light chocolate, and just a touch of coffee. I like that the coffee is a bit more subdued. Really compliments the malts instead of taking center stage here. Nice bready and hop bitterness in the finish. Light medium bodied, slightly creamy texture, average carbonation. This is just an excellent all around beer here! Different and certainly a standout among blonde ales! I gotts get more of this!

Dang what a brew, light with great flavor of vanilla and coffee, it’s exactly what this type of beer should taste like and cheap

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy head. Coffee aroma with some light caramel and grassy hops. Flavor has a surprising amount of coffee but not overly bitter. Really blends well and gives an interesting flavor.

waited a long time to try this because I did not think I would like it. Wrong. Pours a very light, slightly cloudy amber. Aroma is heavy of coffee and cocoa. Flavor the same with some vanilla. Medium bodied with a sweet finish that doesnt linger. Fantastic.

Beautiful Blonde ale smells strong of coffee and tastes even stronger. If you like coffee this beer is for you. I enjoyed it and it's one of my favorites

pours unclear light but bright golden with a very nice creamy white head, good retention and lacing. honeyed malts, sweetish milk chocolate (!), vanilla cream and coconut - soothing, not overwhelming, coffee liquor - kahlua *TM, smooth coffee, some candies, some fruitiness - red berries, lightly zesty. light carbonation, light body - oily, lightly tannic and grassy-spicy-citrusy-dry coffee finish. nicely integrated coffee in a rather honeyed malt bill that’s supported by a good dose of grassy and woodsy hops. enjoyed.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured golden hue with a bubbly white head that disapated quickly. Sweet aroma of light coffee and coco. Taste of vanilla/white chocolate. This seems to be a bit of a novelty beer, not a beer drinker’s beer, but I’m not disapointed that I tried it.
