On-tap 4/25/2012 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub, in Pawtucket, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains maple, nuts, caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with strong and sweet flavors of maple and caramel followed by a hearty malt character and a touch of honey. However, I didn’t pick up any of the coconut flavoring. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sweet.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s very solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
