golden ale with coffee, picking up just a little bit of an amber hue from the addition of the java it looks like, with a frothy white rising head from the tap, clearish and very active. smells like coffee, a lighter to medium roast on it, and likely a cold brew extraction, with a lot of the earthy and cocoa elements coming out in front of the roast, even hints of maple and molasses like when a good cold brew gets some ice melted into it, some malt sweetness here too, but simple on the grain side for sure. its a shame this isnt a little drier, or that there isnt a little more bitterness with the coffee to balance out the sweetness of the pale malt, its just a little more than i want as a session beer, its not the coffee but the residual sugar that slows me down, otherwise this would be a ripper. the coffee is fresh though, and quite boldly dosed. meanwhile, its well carbonated and drinks with some pep. i have liked these guys in the past, but recently they seem have taken the next step. inventive beers that are well executed is really all i ever want! i could see this working well on nitro too...

Poured a clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of fresh roasted coffee and sweet caramel. Nice light coffee flavor up front with sweet toasted caramel.

Pours a crystal clear topaz color with a thin white head. Smells of crackers, bready malts, and coffee. Definitely a sweet note in there. Taste follows the nose minus the sweetness, with breadiness and a bitter coffee presence. Body is light-medium, fairly carbonated, and slightly dry. Easy drinking, and possibly the only coffee beer I could call refreshing. Nicely done.

Of all the coffee beers I've had, this is the best smelling. A truly amazing aroma with how the coffee plays with the golden ale. Usually I'm not that big of a fan of lighter coffee beers but this one really hits the spot. Pours a bright golden color. The beer is incredibly simple yet amazingly smooth and well balanced.
