When I first tried this beer a while back, I could only think of New Belgium’s Fat Tire if it was made richer and with coconut. In fact, it was so good, I had to have several pints of this one. I have tried many ambers before. Many delicious ones but it has been a while since I had one that was mainly malty like the way Fat Tire was. It is funny because a malty Amber ale is what would actually work better with toasted coconut I would think. So when Four Sons finally released the beer in cans, I was not going to wait around to tell people about this amazing beer. Easy to drink and lots of coconut. Now let us look at the canned version and see if it stands to the way I remember it from back then, cheers!

Aromas:
Biscuit bread, caramel, dark fruits, chocolate notes, almonds, toasted coconut notes, floral and earthy hops, hazelnut notes, macaroon notes, rye bread, tropical fruit hints, brown sugar and piña colada hints.

Flavors:
Rich toasted coconut, caramel, milk chocolate, dark fruit raisins, dark cherries, piña colada, kiwi, strawberry, pineapple, rye bread, almond joy chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, floral and earthy hops, flan notes, Irish cream hints, Danish cream notes, almonds, pecan pie hints, hazelnut hints, coconut macaroons and toffee.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with toasted coconut, piña colada notes, chocolate, caramel, biscuit bread and vanilla. No alcohol in the taste, amber clear body, smooth, creamy and refreshing mouthfeel and easy to drink.

Overall:
Very delicious and perfect coconut beer. I was genuinely surprised that this one had a tropical aspect to it. Something that I do not recall getting when I tried it from the tap. I think it actually adds to the beer’s already amazing flavor profile and makes it much better. While I have loved many toasted coconut stouts, seeing a different style with coconut such as this amber is definitely a new look at a somewhat frequent style. I definitely recommend this one, cheers!

Anime Corner:
Haruka from Pokemon was chosen in this pairing as I wanted to go mainly with the colors, label and ingredients of the beer and since the beer is more on the tropical side of things, getting some colorful characters seemed like the way to go too. Pokeballs = Coconut shapes?
