If you have been following my blog at all then you know that I'm a huge fan of beers that taste like fruit. I've done a post on Blue Point's Blueberry Ale and Southampton's Black Raspberry Lambic already so what's next might you ask?
Kona created a brown ale which they brewed with real toasted coconut and I'm happy to report that the end result is very satisfying.
I took a sip and the coconut flavor was definitely there but a little more subtle than the smell. Not a bad thing, but those of you expecting an insanely strong coconut flavor might be let down. I on the other hand think it is a good balance. As I drank my bottle of Koko Brown I couldn't help being reminded of enjoying an ice cream float with whipped cream on top.
Never having tried a coconut beer before I think that Koko Brown was a great first choice and I can't wait to finish my remaining bottles when the weather is nice and warm. I'll have to try some other coconut offerings and compare.
Koko Brown is delicious! Try it! Especially if you're a fan of coconut flavored things.
