3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle). Not very aromatic but this thin brown ale is big on flavor. Very unique. The toasted cocoanut clearly comes through. A lot of fun and nice change from the standards. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I got this bottle for my wife -who has been on a brown ale streak lately. I am not a fan of anything coconut - except for magic bars and carrot cake. The aroma of this one is icky and very much coconut. Flavor is mild brown with lots of coconut flavor. Somewhat too sweet. Finish is a mild brown malt though. Just alright - not something Iíd get again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Flavor has dark malt but is covered by artificial coconut syrup. Alcohol burning and suntan lotion. I love coconut, but this went too far. Harsh and almost astringent for a supposed "session" beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours brown with thin head. Aroma of toasted coconut, slight sun tan oil, roasted grain and sweet malt. Flavor is surprisingly smooth with toffee, some nutty notes, roasted grain and a good dose of toasted coconut. Palate is mildly sweet with a little grainy bitterness and some creaminess coming off the coconut. Overall, Iím not usually a fan of flavored beers but this one was pleasant to drink, coconut flavor was not too dominant. I would drink more.

Sweet malty aroma. Dark amber copper off draft. Mouthfeel is substantially lower body than expected. Only light to medium body. Sweetness from the coconut without being incredibly identifiable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body with a bit of a ruby hue when held to the light under a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is lightly nutty and sweet with just a light hint of suntan oil. The flavor is almost ok at first, slightly nutty with just a little sweetness, but then the finish comes on and it reminds me of Banana Boat Tanning Accelerator. A little too heavy with coconut flavoring. Iíve had a couple really good coconut beers, and all of them used real toasted coconut. This is clearly not the case with this beer. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Not so enjoyable.

Flavors show a very mild coconut acidity, lots of toasted coconuts with a lot of richness, floral, toasted, medium sweet. Tastes a bit like the beginning of Indra Kunindra without the spice. Brown sugar. Sweet but fresh coconut taste. Medium bodied.
