Bottle from a sixer purchased at Odd Side. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of coffee, sweet malt and light fruit. Coffee flavor with some hazelnut character and sweet malt before a roasty finish. Pretty nice.

Deep deep gold pour. Nose is fresh coffee beans, milk chocolates, hazelnuts, and sweet malts. Flavor is similar with more hazelnut coffee. Really a tasty beer with lots of coffee shop complexity.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear medium gold with a white head. Aroma is, frankly, coffee and freezer burn. Flavor is mostly of light creamy coffee. Not too complex, just features the coffee with no other real "beer" flavors. Pleasant, if not exciting.

Pours orange. No head. Smell is all coffee. Taste is old coffee with the blonde ale in the back. Doesn’t mix well at all. Not a fan. Points for trying a blonde with coffee I guess.

Real sweet and syrupy vanilla flavor and body was OK for a desert beer...but I wasn’t having desert. Surprising flavors for a blonde and I appreciate the creativity and boldness, but I wouldn’t have another one.

I love coffee beer, two of my favorite things together, how can you go wrong. Well ask Oddside, they did. The extremely overpowering coffe taste on top of a so so blonde just doesnt work for me, I couldnt even finish the bottle.

ColovianTrader (427) - - APR 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Cream, caramelized sugar, toffee and just enough light roast coffee. Sweet vanilla, almost syrupy finish but good carbonation balances out. Hints of yellow raisins and brown sugar. Quite sweet but the beer handles it well

Pours a transparent light golden color with a foamy white head. Has the look of a lager, but has a strong aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is also rich, with coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. This is sweet, but not too sweet. Has a light to medium body feel. Another unique and tasty offering from Oddside.
