Jackie O's Brewery Cool Beans

What the brewers say

This full-bodied golden ale delivers a rich and creamy mouthfeel married with a bright and fruity coffee character.

What our panel thought

Cold-brewed coffee and vanilla hints in the aroma make you do a double take; notes of roast, green pepper, and mocha. The flavor extends the coffee depth, and there is enough malty and milk-like sweetness to balance the coffee's bitterness. Smooth but bitter finish.

What our editors thought

Sweet latte nose with dark chocolate undertones—cognitive dissonance with the light golden body. The sip loses direction, as the nose collapses into a jumbled wash of lightly bitter coffee with sticky citrus.
