Light golden, clear, medium sized white head and good soapy lacing. Aromas of vanilla, toasted coconut and hay. Notes of hay, dinner roll, corn, and unsweetened vanilla coconut milk. Sharp carbonation, fizzy and sharp with a semi dry finish. Coconut comes through but the mouthfeel is too sharp and the adjuncts shine less than the corn and hay laden cream base.

Straw to pale gold in color and clear with head that settles to nothing. No lacing either.

Nose is corn, a bit of coconut, a bit of sweetness, and a floral note.

Taste is corn, minor malt, minor sweetness, and a very minor fruity note.

Mouthful is light and soft. Carbonation is average. Finish is semi dry.

Not bad but am not getting the coconut as much as I probably should. The mouthful is a bit lacking as well. Middle of the road.

22 ounce bottle, no dating that I could find on it but I think it was released somewhat recently. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like coconut, cream, and some corn/graininess. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like coconut, cream, graininess and also a buttery flavor. Kinda like a coconut cream pie, but not overly sweet at all. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and easy enough to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good enjoyable brew, certainly worth picking up! $7.99 a bomber.

Pale yellow-gold with a soft white film.

Smell is coconut, vanilla, corn and butter.

Taste is vanilla, wet pie crust, butter, corn and light coconut. Feel is wet and substantially thinner than their other Clear Sky variants.

This isn't a coconut bomb, it's still a cream ale first and foremost. I know most people really want to be hit upside the head with coconut when a beer showcases it, but my old lady is just the opposite and as such this is one of her favorites if she has to have a beer with coconut in it.
