Can. Pours a ark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is light coffee with caramel and toasty malt. The flavor is a bit thin with just a light coffee undertone over a slightly sweet pale and caramel maltiness. Lighter bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Decent enough drinker. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2017
UPDATED: APR 7, 2017 12 oz can at the ASMF.Pours slightly hazy with a very good off-white head. Lingering mild coffee flavors. Coffee, biscuits and hops in the nose. Very mild bitterness. Good balance and mix of hop, malt and coffee flavors. Cybercat (6336) - Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Can. Pours clear golden with a thick and rather persistent ivory head. Quality coffee with a pinch of cocoa dominates the aroma, but lets some fresh malt peep through. Flavor presents tasty coffee as the main player, while fresh malt and a hint of cocoa provide the background. Mouthfeel offers firm body, a little firmer than I recall for most lagers of this type, with spirited fizz and a coffee finish. Cool beans! rollinsr (831) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAR 17, 2017
Pours a slightly cloudy gold color with a finger of bubbly white head. Aroma is smoky mocha with some hot pepper character. Flavor instills similar java notes and a little more of the pepper taste. Finishes a little flat.

Mostly coffee on top of a strong apple lager yeastiness. Not bad but certainly an acquired taste, one I’m not yet sold on. Slack carbonation leaves a bready tartness clinging to the palate, with esters dominating the finish. Interesting but not altogether pleasant.

Draft at Craft and Draft. Clear yellow color. Aroma of coffe and white pepper. Earthy taste. ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Best By Mar 16 2017.
Appearance: Pours a light coppery body hazed with a fine dusting of particles. Slim, white head.
Smell: It all sort of culminates into a cooked green bell pepper aroma.
Taste: Sugar sweetened, lightly bready malts with coffee (still very, very heavy on the green pepper, vegetal tone). Sweetish finish. Couldn’t get too far into this one.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not workin’ for me, guys. rdixon77 (3106) - Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Really solid coffee lager. Was a little worried but the lager almost had a cream ale taste from the coffee. Nicely balanced and drinkable, drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2016
11/22/16. First 12oz can on the 22nd, and several more days after. Good stuff! Amber-ish pour with a nice khaki head. Nice coffee aroma, works surprisingly well in the base beer. Smooth flavor, nice pale maltiness, creamy coffee aspect. Tasty! DocJitsu (2060) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Pours a classic golden with a quickly fading antique white head. Coffee beans on the nose. A grainy sweetness is noted as well. I wasn’t sure how this was going to work, but things work well. Well-blended flavors with coffee being dominant. Competing sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Heavy, oily mouthfeel for the style.
