Poured from bottle to pint glass. Pale, pale yellow with a little head. No lacing. Smells of coffee and cream, slight bitterness, roasted sweet caramel. Taste follows, sweet coffee with a tiny bite on the end. Mouthfeel is thin, could be a perception thing since I was expecting something thicker to go along with the coffee flavor. Little to no aftertaste.

Just an odd flavor combination for me. Blonde ale and coffee...blah!

What I imagine a coffee enema tastes like.

The coffee aroma is Divine. Smell of delicious coffee and vanilla. Taste is a bit messy. Pretty solid for a coffee blonde though

Artificially flavored coffee and caramel added to water. Nice attempt but lets be real, there is no complexity to this beer.
