The Look of the beer was light. Never had a blonde ale with coffee and when I got it, I would've thought it was miller/bud light but besides the look was representative of a blonde.

The smell was good. It was very aromatic which was fine for me. I don't need to be able to smell the beer before I taste it. Taste matter much more to me.

The taste was awesome. It was smooth, the coffee flavor was definitely there and to fight off any coffee bitterness there was a sweetness at the end that still contained the coffee flavor.

The feel I saw was excellent. It was light and not heavy as I would expect to be with a lighter looking beer. I would've had several more if I didn't have so many different beers to try that night.

Pretty decent coffee taste with it. Not my favorite but was left after a party so worth a try. Definitely an easy drinker. 'Aybe a good morning boating beer.

The golden yellow color and light tan head mask the coffee in this beer, but it’s not a heavy coffee - very subtle, more of an espresso aroma, with cocoa notes.

Taste has the vanilla of a blonde ale, which combine nicely with the cocoa flavors. Very nice beer.

Light bread notes, and some cream soda flavors. Vanilla notes and coffee pair well. Light floral hops. Moderate carbonation and easy drinking with a semi dry finish.

Up there with one of the best names I have seen on a label. Coffee-forward blonde ale. Really pops with coffee. Almost like smelling used coffee grounds in a filter. I don't particularly love the light colored coffee beers, though.

The brewery certainly lives up to its name on this brew, A strong coffee flavor in an otherwise sedate style. It yields a unique variant of the style.

It opens pale and finely frothy. Very nice. The coffee aroma is prevalent and lovely.

The taste is a light blonde ale bitterness with just hints of the hops. The coffee bitterness compliments this well while neither is overwhelming. This is a very easy drinking, well made and interesting ale.

Highly recommended. I will go back for more of these cans tomorrow!

Clean burnt gold with a large white foam head leaving fishnet lace all over.

Smell is a little metallic and vegetal--(what is it with light Odd Side ales and the cabbage patch? Seriously it almost smells like raw potato)--with coffee and vanilla.

Taste is coffee, vanilla, and shortcake with a tiny spritz of lemon and a hint of grassy or vegetal earthy bitterness.

Feel is full but light, frothy and semi-wet.
