Bottle dated 9/0/13, drank in Jan. 2014 (reviewed from notes). The body was a hazy straw/blonde. The head was off-white and faded to a ring and little island pretty quickly.
The smell was coffee and vanilla, mostly vanilla. Chocolate too. It mad me think of brownies. However, there were some strange whiffs of plastic.
The taste was sweet coffee. Chocolate and vanilla. Creamy. A mocha a suppose. Easy to drink.
The body was medium to light with modest carbonation.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. No date.
A: Clear golden, amber colored body. Some visible carbonation. One finger, bone white head rapidly receded into thin film on the surface with a small ring at the edge.
S: Chocolate, and malty graininess. Can't find the coffee.
T: Chocolatey, the coffee flavors are more mocha than a black brewed café. There is a clear blonde ale character there. Interesting...
M: Light, really thin, mouthfeel...watery, almost no carbonation feel. Slightly astringent on the tongue at the finish.
O: One word: unique. Flavors make this interesting. Billed as a blonde ale with coffee...its a misleading label. This is a blond ale hidden within a mocha. Tone down the chocolates, turn up the coffee, but not too much letting the blonde come through, this might be a really interesting beer.

I really enjoy the long-boarder porter made with coffee and this is the blond ale version. It is fantastic and they have mastered the coffee flavor but without compromising the taste of the beer. Because of the smell and mouthful was more like that of a cream ale instead of a blond ale i rated it a bit low, this doesn't take away the fact that the texture of the flavor is Superb!
