Bottle dated Jan 20 14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma very faint toasted malt
Head average (3 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to
Lacing fair – small arcs and stalactites of tiny bubbles
Body medium brown, chill haze
Flavor slightly malty, slightly sweet; no hops, no coconut, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 3.25, Aroma 3, Flavor 2.75, Palate 2.75, Overall 2.9375. Final weighted score: 2.8625
A very weakly flavored brown ale – the coconut is totally undetectable in this batch. It is, at best, unoffensive.
