Very nice aroma. Pours a clear caramel color, lighter than what I would have expected. Light tasting, very drinkable. I personally do not feel like it has a strong coffee taste, it certainly has the flavor, but I think it’s done just right.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours lightly hazy and cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a lot of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big nutty coffee, vanilla, cream, light bread, floral, and light grass. Awesome aromas with big presence of coffee and malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big nutty coffee, cream, vanilla, bread, floral, and light grass. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of nutty coffee, vanilla, cream, light bread, grass, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Awesome robustness of coffee/cream flavor with a fair amount of malt balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Hardly any alcohol presence after the finish as expected for 4.5%. Overall this is an outstanding coffee blonde ale. Great robustness of authentic coffee/cream flavor; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

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.

Pours a golden two finger head out of the bottle. Nice carbonation. Super clean with light coffee notes on the nose. Soft mouthfeel. A very easy drinkable blonde. Coffee on the finish but not overbearing. Get chocolate notes too. One of the best low abv beers out there. So good!

Draft. The pour is a nice honey golden color. The aroma is mostly a faint coffee. The taste is very nice. A good mix with the coffee and a low abv. I was impressed.

On tap at Michigan Tap Room Stardust Lanes. Pours a golden yellow with a white head and nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is all coffee and chocolate as well, alot of coffee beans and cocoa, almost like a mocha frappachino. Tasty, enjoyable coffee brew and inexpected flavor from the apperance

Again on tap at Michigan Tap Room, Stardusr Bowling, Saginaw, Michigan, pours a golden yellow pour with a small head. Nose is pure chocolate and coffee, like walking into a Starbucks. Taste is full of flavor, all chocolate and coffee, yet the color is not dark. A blonde ale with a rather amazing taste despite the aopearance. WOW! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Bottle. the aroma is really the only thing I don’t like about this beer. Nice medium white head and clear gold appearance. Taste is coffee vanilla and maybe some fruit. Never had a beer like ti really.
