3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Clear straw colored pour with a white head. Some vanilla, coffee, and a bit of green pepper. Some grass, water, chocolate, and bread. Not bad. Flavor is a bit too peppery, but otherwise, good coffee. Chocolate, light vanilla, and sweet malt. A bit of grass and water. Kind of basic and simple, but not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, from b3shine-- thanks! Medium gold body, average white head. Aroma is sweet coffee and chocolate, very aromatic. The palate is surprisingly rich, lots of coffee and chocolate, sweet but not cloying. Really quite a juxtaposition between appearance and flavour here! You have to really like mocha-ish flavours to enjoy this, and luckily I do-- interesting and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting. Deep straw color thin white head. Coffee and cream aroma. Light coffee, vanilla in a thin body and thin carbonation. Mouth feel lacks in this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Golden, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Wow, strong coffee aroma, even a touch of chocolate.   Seems weird for such a light colored beer.   Coffee and cocoa on the tongue.   Not as impressive as the nose, but still rather flavorful.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little prickly on the tongue.   Soft coffee and cocoa on the finish.   Pretty simple beer, but for what it is its flavorful.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks dudeabide). Looks good for the style; a transparent orangish gold with white lacing. Smells solid; well-balanced coffee and vanilla. Tastes like it smells with a smooth, light mouthfeel. A great, robust blonde ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle and served in an ESPN Lager glass: Pours a clean golden hue with a smallish head and spotty lace. The aroma and taste has moderate coffee notes, biscuity pale malts, undertones of vanilla beans and peanuts. Very light and almost non-existent hop notes. A tad sweet as it warms. A different brew for sure, sort of like this however.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber with a good lingering sticky white head. Aroma is heavy coffee beans and biscuit. Thin side on mouthfeel. Slight hop overpowered a bit by coffee bean. Not much depth but an interesting combination. I see what they're doing and I like the idea of pushing the envelope but coffee belongs elsewhere. Good job none the less!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazed dark golden pour with sparse bubbles for a head. Aroma of coffee and cream, vanilla, mild sweet breads and florals. Some marshmallow, some bread dough. Flavor is cream, coffee, vanilla. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel with creamy carbonation. Medium coffee finish. It’s gone before you know it. An absolutely wonderful, unique take on a golden ale.
