Beautiful amber color and semi-transparent. Cream colored head is thick on the pour and retains well. Good lacing.

Tangy tropical plants, grass and wheat toast in the aroma.

Wheat flavor. Coconut. Mild toast character. Hops are grassy and leafy. Has a sour off taste.

Medium bodied. Grainy texture. Dry finish. Solid carbonation.

Eh. Not the best brown ale out there. I appreciate the creativity but this one was a flop in my opinion.

Kinda average in the glass. Clear cola brown with a two finger soapy head. Mild malt and toasted bread notes in the nose. Again a bready sweetness with chocolate and coconut flavors on the tongue. Clean finish with a mild bitterness some notes of charcoal. Light crisp feel with a bit of weight to it. A nice drinkable beer but just that.
