[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a light reddish hue and a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, eventually receding down to a thin film and possessed some good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).

The taste was lightly malty and bitter sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, progressing with a mild citrus sweetness and a bitter hop finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with a fruity hoppy taste settling in on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body, watery and a tad dry in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall a very good Pale Ale, which possessed a decent hoppiness that was set off slightly by a mild citrus sweetness...

Cocoa Beach Pale Ale came to me in a pint glass at the brewery, it is copper in color with an off white head. The aroma is nice and hoppy. The flavor has a nice hoppy character, the flavor tends toward pine tar without being overwhelming. There is a nice hoppy, dry finish. This is an enjoyable beer, definitely worth a try.

The Lost Spring Break Beer Review, Chapter 4

Bright amber with golden highlights. Small white head which might be damaged by hotel glassware.

Aroma of apricots and mango, with a hint of pine.

Solid deep caramel foundation. Some juicy fruit. Small bitter bite at the swallow.lingering bitterness. Very slight soap in the aftertaste. Needs a bit more hops to balance the malt.

Medium mouthfeel, mostly smooth with a little bit of bubbly.

A good enough pale ale for a vacation try.

A - Poured a hazy, copper color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left minimal lacing.

S - It smelled of caramel and toast. Some grassy floral hop presence.

T - It tasted of burnt toast, caramel and roasted malt. There is a very mild bitter grassy bite.

M - It was crisp and fairly sharp. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - I think they've improved or maybe I'm kind, but this is a better brew than the reviews last summer. Not great but still a worthy brew to try.

On-tap at Ale+Witch. It pours a golden-copper hue and is capped with some white froth, depositing a bit of lace. The nose, huh,what to say here. It smells like a homebrew, and not a very good one. Vaguely piney bitterness mingles with a vegetal-sweatsock aroma in the nose. It is actually less bad than it sounds, but still is not good at all. The flavor continues along the same lines, but seems to offer more of a wet cardboard thing than the sweatsock of the nose. It still is quite bad. I really want to like Cocoa Beach Pale Ale, but even the homer in me must acknowledge the failings of this brew.
