On-tap at Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Portland, OR

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with just a thin white collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cold brew coffee and green coffee beans are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but finishes with strong notes of cocoa nibs and vanilla beans in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and had a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked the mix of flavors in the taste.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Cascade Brewing Barrel House.
A surprising, bright clear amber body with a white head. Loads of exceptionally appealing coffee aroma and flavor. Lively carbonation to go with the medium body.
Highly recommended.

well this certainly is an interesting brew, another one of their non sour beers that they serve at the barrel house in portland. its really tasty, i liked it even better than the ipa they do. a blonde coffee stout, its amazing really, probably the best example of the style i have seen. comes out all looking like a pale ale, honey colored and clear with a half inch of lazy white head on it. the nose is a shocker, rich earthy roasty coffee, with some caramel malts and milk sugars it seems, lots going on, but it smells like a dark beer for sure, or like a vanilla latte, pretty cool. the beer is way less sweet than it smells thankfully, but it holds onto a little bit of residual sugar, giving it lots of body even without some of the darker grains. likely some oats in here too for that. the coffee is really good, like brewed espresso, which pretty much takes care of the low end where the dark malt would be. its smooth to drink too, feels palate coating and almost comforting. i dig that hard. not overly carbonated, but it really doesnt need to be with this body. inventive and well executed beer that finishes with vanilla and honey notes on top of the coffee. this would be a killer morning beer. they should bottle it.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a lightly pale golden color into the glass. There is excellent clarity and a pillowy white head atop the beer. Substantial lacing left behind is somewhat spotty and inconsistent.

S — Smells of lightly sweet malts and a bit of bitter coffee, almost like green coffee, not a lot of roasted or charred component here.

T — Taste is of a light golden ale, really quite refreshing, as it warms there is a nice coffee component to it as well. Nice balance of sweetness as well.

M — Light in body, there is enough carbonation to keep this crisp and clean.

O — Good beer here, not sure that it's a stout, a little bit light, but still a nice light coffee ale.
