12 oz can pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head that lastes and leaves clumps of lacing. Aroma has cocoa, vanilla, coffee, and cream. Taste is initially sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Easily drinkable, and quite enjoyable. Looks like a blonde Ale but tastes like a sweet stout or a porter.

12 oz bottle from a grocery store in upper Michigan. Aroma is coffee, skunk, vanilla, cocoa. Pours slightly hazy golden with a medium white head with decent retention. Taste is lightly sweet with flavors of coffee, green bell pepper, lotion. Finishes with a light dry bitterness. Interesting and tasty; the off notes are easy to look past.

Can. Looks like a blonde ale but the first taste is chocolaty coffee, so odd. Yas, if I closed my eyes I would be imagining a black chocolate flavored stout. So, light a few candles, turn down the lights and put on some easy listening music and then enjoy the chocolate this beer has to offer, you need not look at the color of the beer.

12floz can without a freshness marker, ~$1.75 unit cost, poured into a pint glass where it appears a somewhat cloudy straw color with a soft white head. Smells like milk chocolate, and initial taste does too with a hint of coffee. Very light, refreshing, and has a smooth cereal grain finish (much like actual breakfast cereal). Quite the impressive coffee golden ale.

5oz pour at ABV Social. Pours a pale golden with a white head leaving streaky lace. Sweet roasty nose, with some cocoa. Taste is sweet fruits, cafe au lait, light yeast. The fruit & yeast lead. Light and sweet, solid & not boring for a low abv offering.12.8

Tap at brewery in grand haven during glbtq. Gold with medium white head. Heavy coffee aroma. Coffee subtle in flavor. Really nice body and roundness. Very smooth. Sweet grain taste balances the coffee softness. Surprising, especially for the mouthfeel. Very good.

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 Merchant’s 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!
