"didn’t get too many of those aspects the brewer described above. a somewhat lacking amber blonde...not aroma-less, but less than par for the style. too much malt, not enough hops.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a very light bodied drink with a clean sweet grass and wheat aroma. It’s gold wirh a frothy white head that lingers for a while with little lacing action. The flavor is mild, a sweet toffee taste with light fruits and a dash of honey. This is a warm weather session ale.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clearish copper coloured body with a honey glow and a soapy, two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, cardboard, some light sugars and not much else - very mild. Light-bodied; Sharp nutty flavour at first with some cardboard and a hint of toffee noticeable. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, a little bit of earth and mostly malt noticeable, but not much at all, very mild. Overall, a pretty substandard offering, but that was pretty much expected. Not really worth trying, unless you are from Hawai’i and can’t get great different beers very cheaply. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the Wine Corner in Pai’a, Maui, Hawai’i on 02-March-2010 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 31-January-2013.
