FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is very strong mocha coffee character, vanilla, cream, coffee like a latte with vanilla. Flavor has much the same, straightforward vanilla and cocoa and coffee. Finishing sweet and nestle cocoa powder. Fizzy carbonation, too much for the style, soda-like prickle that should be softer to let all those sweet notes roll. Medium body. The more I drink the more I kind of feel like its an artificial coffee character but it has some nice notes to it

WOW...wakes up the brain. The aroma is excellent and quite surprising. Mixing the coffee with a pale ale is kind of confusing in a good way.

Maakun (3627) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
Tap at Pyramid Scheme. Slight hazy light golden with white head. Soft malts, quite some vanilla, light roasted coffee touch, fresh grain and bread crust. Light sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. Bit too much vanilla and coffee maybe, a bit one dimensional.

Couple of Cans with Ryan in Muskegon. Strange mix Of coffee and dark with a golden ale. Not great but passable. They have other, better brews.

Marheb (4804) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 16, 2016
(En fût à Sport Shotz Detroit Airport): Un mélange plutôt efficace de céréales craquants, légèrement acidulées et d’un voile de torréfaction. Finale peu amère mais juteuse. Un liquide peu complexe mais bien exécuté.

Aroma is citrus, malts, fruit and very funky. The flavor is malts, coffee, fruit, earthy, spices and a funky/sweetish finish.

12oz tulip at HopCat Detroit pours a clear gold lacing white head. Nose is nice with coffee and cream, candlewax, vanilla. Flavor is sweet with coffee and cream, some corn, floral, vanilla. Dry finish. So drinkable.

kaser (5567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Orange pour from draft at Merkles, white head. Has a cream and coffee aroma, taste doesn’t follow the appearance in my opinion. Has a coffee and lager flavor, it is easy to drink but not sure I’d order it up again. Worth a try though.

Frank (3974) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2016
This is kinda a novelty but drinkable at least. It’s cloudy pale golden w/ a long lasting head of medium bubbles. It smells sort of grassy and hoppy, mildly grainy, but tastes mostly of vanilla w/ a hint of coffee. It has really brisk carbonation which seems to clash w/ the somewhat thick mouthfeel and the overall flavor. It finishes w/ roasty coffee bitterness and some lingering sweetness. This one is more about the added ingredients than the base beer, which is fine I suppose, but doesn’t really come together here.

A new brewery for me. Poured from a can, looks like your generic adjunct American beer. Aroma is yeast, grass and hay. Flavor has just a hint of coffee and some malt. Texture is a bit thicker than water. I think this would be nice beer after chopping grass, a hard day fishing, or even hang in at the beach.
