3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8.7 srm; 16.5 IBUs. Tasted at the brewery.
Lightly cloudy. Light gold color. Small head but leaves good stringy lace.
Gives off a very mild smell that is semi-sour with a touch of coconut in the background.
The flavor has a definitive coconut taste to it. Some sweetness from the malt but there’s a touch of bitterness in the swallow. Crisp for an ale. I applaud the use of an entirely unexpected ingredient (coconut) in an otherwise Golden Ale. It makes me curious about using it in other styles. I immediately think of a rich chocolate Porter--something akin to a Mounds candy bar.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A- Subtle funk,
A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Subtle coconut, slightly tart.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation,
O- I think this one was definitely infected. I’ve had a few good infused blondes lately. Coffee one, vanilla bean one, some good ones, but not this. Virtually no coconut and absolutely no caramel or vanilla. Slightly tart and funky too. Let down here.

Loved the flavor of coconut in the beer, highly malty, sweet and rich. Low bitterness but very drinkable, one for the books

With an aroma somewhere between sunscreen and beer, I was a little uncertain about this one. To my surprise, I found it to be pretty good. The coconut is evident on the finish but otherwise it is a smooth ale. This would be a great beer for a day at the beach.

On tap as part of a flight at the brewery. Strong coconut aroma and flavor. Clear light golden in color. One of the most prominent coconut beers I’ve had, but doesn’t make me want more. Sorry.
