This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of foamy white head that quickly dissipated. Remnants of filmy white lacing roamed around the glass. The aroma smelled like cold pressed espresso moving delicately over top of sweet creamy notes of a blonde ale. Yes, I do believe that I do get a little bit of sweet corn as it warms. The taste was pretty much the same but barely any of the sweet corn. Light sweet coffee aftertaste slides into a semi-wet sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good, pretty low allowing the creaminess to lay down softly on my tongue. Coffee portion is smooth. Overall, so this seems to be a cross between a blonde ale and a cream ale, I guess? With Sixpoint adding some coffee in to balance and enliven. I’d say they did a really nice job just by combining two unpopular styles.

Cream Ale w/ coffee influence. Pours straw Golden yellow with a light head that lingers through drinking. There's alot of subtleties in this beer with the roasted coffee, hops, bitterness, carbonation, and more. Again subtle without being overtaken by complexities. Nice Spring/Summer change if you're looking for something a little "different". 7.2% ABV

Nice and refreshing. Coffee all over the nose and a nice beefy mouthfeel that is supplemented by some hop bitterness. The flavor is whole roasted coffee beans with some vanilla notes. Carbonation takes away from the overall experience, but still a nice beer! Not sure that I've had a cream ale north of 5% abv, so this is a new experience

Overall, easy sipper the misses will enjoy with you

A: A brilliant honey brown in color with a light tan head.

S: Pleasant coffee and cream aroma, with a touch of a sharp note in the finish.. almost a bit of tartness.

T: Funky. There is a barrel of flavor going on in this one. Sweet with a malt and corn note, plus something vegetal in there. Finish is coffee with a little oak in the finish, and a lingering vegetal flavor.

M: Medium light in body, with very active carbonation, and a semi-dry finish.

O: Overall this one misses the mark for me. Too many competing flavors in opposition of each other.

This beer is different. That was my first reaction. At first I wasn't impressed but it's grown on me. Light colored blonde ale with a highly carbonated finish. Mild roasted coffee notes come through. Easy drinker and a good summer beer for coffee fans.

Serving: 12 oz can ("BB16AUG2017"), poured into a 7 oz Libbey Gibraltar glass.

Appearance: Bright, clear amber gold with visible effervescence. Brief head of bubbly white foam with spare lacing.

Smell: Grainy malt, roasted coffee beans and zesty fruit esters.

Taste: Light blonde ale highlights roasty, nutty and fruity coffee notes without being a deep, dark coffee bomb. Earthy, balanced hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate, lively carbonation.

Overall: Great use of a lighter beer to highlight subtler coffee notes that darker malt might obscure.

Look is a gold/copper with a small tan head. Nose is malt, muted coffee, toffee, caramel, root beer, vanilla, faint hops. Taste is malty, bitter hops and coffee grounds, caramel, bakers chocolate, unsweetened vanilla. Lots of carbonation and goes down fairly easy. This was a beer with no balance as the flavors did not merge too well. Average at best but wouldn't buy again.
