Say ALOHOG to Summer
You’ll Go ‘Coconut-ty’ For HogsBack’s Latest Limited Edition Seasonal Beer
A taste of the tropics comes to Ontario this summer with the release of
ALOHOG Coconut Pale Ale – the latest in a series of Limited Edition
seasonal beers from Ottawa’s HogsBack Brewing Company.
Coconut Pale Ale is spectacular summer beer infused with a hint of
toasted coconut … Just perfect to enjoy on a hot day. The beer pours a
clear golden colour, with the aroma first
hinting of the delicious coconut within along with sweet pale malt,
citrus and some piney hops. The taste is malty then citrusy then a
lovely coconut flavour finishes the beer off ending mildly dry and
slightly peppery. Mouthfeel is light to medium body and smoothly sweet
with medium carbonation. Overall this beer is balanced, smooth and
exceptional for summer quaffing.
What would go great with a nice tropical tasting summer beer? – How about a LUAU!!!
Join HogsBack for the ALOHOG Coconut Pale Ale launch & luau party
on Saturday July 29th starting at 3pm on the patio of Hooley’s (292
