Tried at the Coach and horses Dronfield. Looks like the normal wild swan but has an amazing coconut smell to it and big coconut flavours, very summery drink on a lovely day.

Cask Handpump at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico 02/08/2010 Coconut aroma. Clear golden coloured smooth on the palate and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a creamy and slightly bitter coconut finish.

2nd August 2010. Thornbridge event at the Cask & Kitchen.
Clear pale gold beer with a good white head. The head is soft with obvious sweet coconut. Softish palate - a little dry. Fruity orange hop with some mild bitterness that contrasts nicely with the coconut sweetness. Finishes dry. Off the beaten track but quite drinkable.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, 2nd August 2010. Light gold with a line of head. Subtle coconut nose. Likewise, flavour is delicate - dry, bit of coconut and lemony citrus. Very enjoyable for a <4% beer.

[3237-20100802] Cask. Pineapple mango notes in the aroma. Clear, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lots of pineapple and sweet coconut in the flavour with fruity malt. Medium body is a little bitter. Interesting.
Overheard: "You can’t touch him or I may have to punch you in the arm."

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the C&K, Pimlico. Pale gold with a thin white head, in somewhat flat condition. I struggled to detect the coconut in flavour but could certainly smell it. Interesting idea but I much prefer the standard Swan.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
2010-08-01. Crisp yellow body with a small white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is sweet with an interesting profile, fruity but not quite, dry notes, what I assume is coconut but might not have identified it as such if tasting it blind. Very light pale malt character. 6+ Aroma is interesting, something I remember but can not place, mild tropical fruit and vague coconut character. Very smooth average to light bodied palate. Interesting. Bit odd at times, but pleasant. Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, London

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Cask handpull at CP&K, Pimlico. Light gold, kind of coconut, kind of fruit. Drinkability of the regular Wild Swan with some subtle coconut.
