Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a murky apricot color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet coconut, caramel and cream. The flavor was sweet, nutty, caramel, coconut and cream. Long finish. Medium body. Interesting.

Can. Poured a clear golden yellow with not much for head. Aroma was as expected..........coconut. Flavor was more coconut and some hints of caramel, straw, and bready. Light body and a kind of thin but creamy texture to it. A bit odd, but I really enjoyed this and it was refreshing. Carbonation was average and pretty smooth to finish. Good beer.

can. Deep golden with one finger head. While not as bad as the IPA, thereís not much going on here. Light caramel body, coconut. Generally underwhelming.

355ml can brought to me from Florida. Pours a clear orange/yellow with a thick off white head. Aroma is...coconut. It literally smells like a freshly cracked coconut. Taste is...coconut. Nothing but coconut. If there is a beer in here, I canít find it. And a coconut after taste...imagine that. Itís an interesting beer, and would likely best be enjoyed on a hot day at the beach. I think it could be improved by giving a bit more of a malt backbone for the coconut to grow on. Not really my style, but good.

12oz can. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a medium fizzy white head. Aroma was some light coconut notes, some light malts. Flavor was light coconut, perhaps a bit artificial, but alright. Drinkable.
