Clear golden and light copper coloured body with a nice, thick and soapy head, about five centimetres tall, off-white in colour. Aroma of coffee, cardboard, malt, vanilla, a touch of alcohol and a ton more coffee - very nice and incredibly fragrant. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive deep coffee flavours with touches of chocolate, spice and a lot of grassy and herbal malts and a little hop kick noticeable near the end. Aftertaste shows the coffee, chocolate and hints of roast with a little bitterness from the hops playing out. Overall, a nice and incredibly complex coffee flavour for such a light beer without any roasting of the malt here - deep and strong, while still being lightish and easy enough to drink in the summer. Good to try if you can find it and/or lug it back home! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchants in Dearborn, Michigan on 25-July-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 21-May-2017.

Ok this is good stuff. Must get to 75 characters. Glen Haven brewery LOL - deceptively flavored with these dark beer flavors ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can at home bought at lizardville in Copley Ohio. Part of The Winking Lizard. Has aroma of chocolate and I was expecting coffee. Blond in color and hazy. Had bigger white head. Chocolate notes during tasting Very smooth. No after bite. Kind of light and very enjoyable on this warm day. Very nice surprise, and very drinkable!

Bottle. Golden pour, lively beer. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, malt and cream. Taste has sweet creamy coffee, vanilla, malt, candisugar and yeast. Nice stuff.

Dogbrick (12743) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Sample at Bridge Street Tap Room. This beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short stringy lacing. Roast coffee, malt and hops in the nose. Light-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt character, with slight hops in the background. The finish is vanilla coffee and malt. Decent overall.

On tap at Hopcat. Toasty coffee aroma with straw coloring. Full bodied coffee taste. Super surprising considering the color. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (5165) - 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.
