3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

Beautiful Blonde ale smells strong of coffee and tastes even stronger. If you like coffee this beer is for you. I enjoyed it and it's one of my favorites

pours unclear light but bright golden with a very nice creamy white head, good retention and lacing. honeyed malts, sweetish milk chocolate (!), vanilla cream and coconut - soothing, not overwhelming, coffee liquor - kahlua *TM, smooth coffee, some candies, some fruitiness - red berries, lightly zesty. light carbonation, light body - oily, lightly tannic and grassy-spicy-citrusy-dry coffee finish. nicely integrated coffee in a rather honeyed malt bill that’s supported by a good dose of grassy and woodsy hops. enjoyed.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured golden hue with a bubbly white head that disapated quickly. Sweet aroma of light coffee and coco. Taste of vanilla/white chocolate. This seems to be a bit of a novelty beer, not a beer drinker’s beer, but I’m not disapointed that I tried it.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 First taste from bottle was like a quality coffee porter - color after pour was surprising light. A winning balance of weight, flavor, finish make this one of the best coffee beers of any style.

Out of the bottle poor is golden with a white head. Aroma is light coffee . The taste of this beer is surprising compared to the way it looks. Upfront you get coffee flavors that are not overpowering along withsome chocolate notes. Flavors of this beer do not linger giving it a smooth finish. Easy drinker that is worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a thin, white head. Aroma has slightly sweet, slightly candy, notes of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and a hint of coffee, but not really roasty. Interesting. Taste is balanced with mild coffee/roasty notes paired with traces of vanilla and caramel, and a short aftertaste of coffee bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Very slightly syrupy but still very drinkable. Overall an interesting and tasty beer. Traces of coffee and vanilla but without the big roasted flavours.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Refreshing. Very slight trace of vanilla. It reminds me of a good iced coffee with no cream or sugar. More like crisp pilsner with notes of coffee. No artificially flavor crap in this. Doesn’t have much of a nose.
