Pours a thin brown.

Pungent coffee character and grassy hop aromas.

Hmm, at first sip I already know I'm not going to finish my glass. The strong coffee character in the aroma definitely comes through in flavor as well, but the mix of coffee and this style, not a good choice. It's prickly carbonation and lager like flavor with strong herbal/grassy hops, mixed with coffee is quite terrible.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, thin.

Overall, not going to lie this was a drain pour, pass on this.

22 ounce bottle into a pilsner glass. Bottled on 5/30/16.

Has a kind of golden color, a little darker away from the light. Mostly clear, with a one and a half finger head, some creamy lacing. Lots of streaming bubbles on the first pour. Looks like a lager. Not a strong aroma, some coffee- a little stronger as it warms, a little bready, crackers, light malt and yeast. The taste leads with the coffee, although it's certainly not strong. Light malt, some hops, yeast, again a little bready. A light sweetness up front, some bitterness on the finish. Crisp, refreshing, fairly dry.

Ths is not a style I normally seek out, but this is a really good example of it. Liked it more as the bottle emptied. The coffee is definitely a positve addition. Another creative and solid effort from Pipeworks. Great price point, so give it a try.
