They've dialed this in as of late, to where I'm deleting my 2016 review and making a whole new one.

The color is hazy burnt gold with a frothy persistent white blanket on top.

It's rounder and softer, featuring earthier, almost chocolatey coffee. This pairs well with unobtrusively complementary bready, barely toasty malt. The finish is cleanly semi-dry and fulfilling.

I was surprised how much the blonde holds it's own. I have had plenty of cream ales that I felt couldn't support the coffee profile, and figured this beer would stuggle even more as a base, but it really shines through. The coffee aroma is stronger than the flavor, which is just a nice compliment. Light toasted grains. Semi sweet. Coffee beans pull a hit and run. A crisp clean finish with no bitterness or lingering roast in the aftertaste. More grainy. Very nice.

Pours a nice golden color. Aroma is roasted coffee bordering on espresso but not quite as bitter. Flavor is roasted coffee with a smooth semi creamy mouthfeel. Creamy like a cream ale not a milk stout. Has a soft smooth easily drinkable mouthfeel and overall a very delicious beer. I'm not a big fan of this style but this is one of the best.

On tap at Jackie O's

Pours a deep golden color with a small foamy white head. Smells of herbal coffee and toasted grains. Taste is a showcase of fresh coffee, without the dark roasted malt, typically with most coffee beers. It gives it a lighter flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-low carbonation, leading to a foamy finish. An interesting beer that will be a hit with any coffee drinker

A Blonde Ale brewed with local coffee, very cool and crisp refreshing coffee flavor. Rarely even in stouts is the coffee taste worked out this well. This beer is a huge success... great job Liam!
