Amber in color with an off-white head. Nose is grassy and lightly floral. Some sweet bread, grain, and apple esters. A bit of citrus peel, maybe some yeast. The flavor is sort of bland and a bit watery. Some bread and grain notes, light toast, and fruity esters. There’s a mild citrus note, some floral hops, and a fair amount of grassy bitterness.

12 oz can. BB 2016/06/08. (Whole Foods) Honolulu, HI.
Slightly cloudy golden color with a small white head. Sweet fruity hops, no bitterness and sweet malt in the aroma. The flavor is dull hoppiness, mild bitterness, wet cardboard and malt. Boring... unlike the mixture of SoCal Spanish and HI Pidgin English.

Can from Natural Lawson. Aroma of old ale yeast, some fruit and caramel. Very sweet with a slight bit of staleness on the palate. Very malt-forward with a large amount of fruity ale-like yeast on the palate. Light and kinda weird. Not good.

Purchased at some random grocery store in Honolulu, HI; enjoyed on my last day of vacation which kind of bums me out. Appearance is a cloudy darkish gold with a moderate white head. Aroma is not very good, mostly bready malt, smells like a mass produced lager. Taste is also not very good, not many flavors that I can pick out and it tastes like a generic beer. Not a fan.

June 22nd, 2013 - I was excited to see a new Hawaiian beer that wasn’t from Maui Brewing, but it’s all in the label and not in the origin. I’m not sure what the purpose here was, but this is mainlander brew, and not an especially enticing one at that. It’s a simple, plain brew with a little hops and a touch of amber style flavor, but mostly metallic and not entirely appealing.

Aroma is beer, drank straight from can, taste is smooth, not Sharp, like anAmber beer, but as you continue to drink it gets a metallic flavor

Pretty basic beer. This isn't actually hawaiian at all. Typical pale ale really mild flavor no hop at all. A decent canned beer but pretty much a bud.

Can from Kaldi. Hey, it’s not so bad, but it’s not so interesting, but what did I expect for the cheap price and the fact that I got it from a coffee shop. Aroma is lightly hoppy, little bit of citrus, more malty. And smells a bit of beans! Taste is malt driven again, lacks a bit of sparkle. Light caramel, light citrus, light all round. Bit too sweet for me.

What a mess. Light golden pour with a whitish head. Very little aroma, overpowering sweetness on the front, in the middle, and at the end. Not even an interesting sweet, just a thin, artificial, faintly fruity sweet. Would I drink again? no.

Can, bought and shared by Parksy. Unfathomably aweful, stinky, with an artificial adjunct-preservative taste, just foul.
