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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Blonde colored pour with a white head. Flavors of coffee, sure didn’t look like a coffee beer! Toasted marshmallow, hint of white chocolate peanut butter, light yeastiness is nice. Very cool damn beer. Finds like this make GABF fun.

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.

3.6 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of a strong coffee note with only a hint of backing light grain note. Flavor works better with a light coffee note that works well with the light grain, grass and fruit notes.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle purchased somewhere in Michigan. Looks like a somewhat low fill. Clear golden orange color. Thin white head. No lace really sticks. Impressive big coffee flavor dominates the flavor. Maybe a bit of bready, biscuity malt in the back. Hint of chocolate. Light to medium body. Light to moderate carbonation, kind of softer crisp texture. Lightly sticky in the finish. Good long coffee aftertaste in the finish. Light citrusy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Not your typical golden ale, but a very tasty and unusual coffee beer.. Much better than expected.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle extra courtesy of Mikem, thank you sir. Pours a light body. Aroma is fresh coffee grinds and vanilla. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with a burst of fresh coffee and smooth vanilla and grain. Weirdly, this beer works somehow.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have nice coffee and vanilla notes. I went into this thinking negatively about a coffee blonde, but this is pretty good.
