Bomber. Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, not a ton of coconut, mostly, blonde ale grains, vanilla, some honey, a bit candyish. Flavor starts with the basic graininess, sweet picking up the candy character, not much coconut to be found, some light breadiness and a touch of fruit. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Disappointed in the little to no coconut.

Can from Mariano's, Wicker Park. Refreshing, subtle coconut and really benefits from having a good, long sit in the fridge before opening. Very easy going, but the faint coconut and the crisp, golden-ale qualities play off each other really well.

12 oz can. Hazy gold pour with a white head and good retention. No lacing. Flat mouthfeel Tastes like a nice smooth golden ale with just a few coconut shavings added. The coconut flavor is very subtle. Refreshing.

wlajwl (6942) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Aroma is pale malts, fruit/mild citrus and nutty coconut. The flavor is citrus, coconut, pale malts and a hoppy/mildly bitter finish.

Itzjerm (3056) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Typical blonde with very subtle coconut. Nose is typical blonde. Missing a lot. Taste is light sour and coconut. Coconut builds. Interesting combination. But not my thing.

PorterPounder (8171) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Tallahassee, Fl - Quick Stop - 12 oz can. Murky, light golden, no head, lifeless, Aroma is that of coconut water and grassy spiciness. Flavor is cloying,a mixture of sour and coconut that just doesn’t sit right. Dull mouthfeel. Bad experiment,

From a can poured in a shaker. Smells strongly of Coconut. Hits you over the head with coconut flavor. Almost like somebody spilled a jug of Hawaiian Tropic in a batch of average golden ale. Flavor is very strong and one note. Not unpleasant, but sort of gimmicky.
