kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Tap. Brown Ale with coffee added per the menu. Pours a clear light brown to amber body with a small tight bubbled off-white head. The nose is toasty malt with some nice light-roast coffee. The flavor is well balanced between the coffee and the dry toasty and chocolate malts. Some light bitterness on the finish. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft minimal carbonation. Really nice, especially for a lover of coffee beers.

Tap at tavern on main. Super clear red amber pour with white head. Aroma of toast and light roast coffee caramel toast and flowers. Taste starts as a toasted amber and transitions to light coffee and caramel/toffee. Light and very drinkable with good flavors. Well balanced and unique. I want more like this.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Tap at Victory, Downington, 27/11/13. Clear dark amber with a good sized light beige covering that thins but retains well. Nose is coffee forward, coffee and walnut cake, sweet aroma. Taste carries a little more constrained coffee notes, toffee fudge, sugars, coffee cake mix, sweet bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet closure. Decent coffee affair.

Beerathon (957) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Usually coffee flavors of this magnitude are in a robust porter or stout, but this light brown ale delivered. I found it unique and enjoyed it because it gave the coffee flavor without overwhelming the palate or being heavy.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2013
On tap at Tylerís, Durham. Amber brown pour, frothy and lively like RC cola. Soft notes of cocoa and coffee in the nose, which is otherwise sweetly malty. Feels a bit insubstantial for the style, lightly prickly. Mild leafy bitterness and nuts here and there, malts underneath consistently, and occasionally a reminder of the roasts. Seems like itís uncertain of its personality.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Tap at Tylers Durham. Pours medium brown with a small off white head. Nose shows cocoa, very nutty, medium to heavy roast, light herbal hops. Flavor is similar, lots of nuts, fairly roasty, but still a medium to light mouthfeel. Meh.
