If you have not, please, read them to get to get to know this upcoming Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this unique Blonde Ale.
It has a clear golden color with a big white constant head. The aroma had a slight coffee bean notes. The taste has a smooth and creamy coffee notes. The aftertaste has a crisp coffee finish. It is s nice session coffee blonde for any season of the year. The coffee is not overpowering and do not let coffee notes in this beer fool you.

Closing, this blonde ale looks like one thing but it really something else. Yep, I just said it. I love the smell of coffee and taste profile is nice. The coffee is not in your face like most porters or stouts. It is a nice coffee notes that is strong enough but weak. It is not overpowering ale. The coffee is like a creamy and I believe that is why this beer works. I am pretty stun this beer came out good. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
