With all-natural ingredients, the Keoki Sunsetís mahogany color hints at itís subtle balance of delicious, rich flavors. A slight roasted malt taste and good hop aroma gives this Hawaii beer a bittersweet chocolate complexity and a velvet-like body with a quaffable character.

Malts: 2-Row Brewers Malt, Carapils, White Wheat, Caramel Vienne, Carmel 120L
Hops: Simcoe, for bittering and Vanguard, for flavor and aroma

12 oz bottle. Label states Sunset Amber Ale. Pours amber, medium head. Aroma is mainly caramel malts. Flavor is bad and this beer is undrinkable. It tastes like one of my homebrews gone bad. Sorry, I wish I could give it a higher rating.

Bought a 6 of this in Lanikai. Probably mislabeled by ratebeer as this appears closer to the label definition of amber/island style than pale. Blah color, not much nose, some malted notes + wood. Nutty taste, some malt, dough, okay.

Amber brew with a slight head. Caramel and roasty nose with finger licks of coffee. Roast coffee and caramel endow this brew with a sturdy backbone. Medium-bodied and fairly toasty. A solid amber.

Bottle in Kauai. Very dull, straight forward brew. More of a blonde than an APA, as there is pretty much no hop definition here. Mild cookie, white bread flavors, with a little bit of residual sweetness.

Served from a 12 oz bottle from The Liquor Collection in HI. The appearance is a slightly hazy golden amber with a small white head. The nose is refreshing with sweet malts and some spice. The flavors are a bit off. Some oxidation for sure with the slight cardboard. Some aged hops as well. Sadley my bottle was a little oxidized(at least I hope). Why did I have to get suckered in to completing my 6 pack and saving a $1 (2.7%).

Bottle brought back from Hawaii. Amber color with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is of light caramel & roasted malt mix with small hop hints. Taste is roasted malt with just a bit of hop bitterness.

Honolulu, Hi - Airport - Island Brews bar - on tap. Dark copper pour, with an off-white head that leaves good lacing. flavor has some light citrus, a bit of passion fruit, with some back end nuttiness. Smooth mouthfeel - not bad at all.

Well, Iím pretty sure this ISNíT Keoki Sunset; Hawaiíi Nuiís Sunset Amber is an, er, amber ale. Since I canít rate it under that name, I can report that Keoki isnít around any more. Tried to find the brewery in Lihue, and the only Keoki where the brewery used to be is a plate-lunch place. Anyway, the amber ale has an intriguing nose, but it doesnít get better from there. Interesting coffee notes, but the flavor isnít complex or nuanced. Perfectly quaffable, given the temperatures, but not terribly noteworthy.

Tap at LuLuís in Kihei. Pours a clear light amber color with a a 1 finger thick beige head, spotty lacing. The nose was a little nutty with some cereal grains and light hops mixed in. Finish was fairly watery, nothing tho seek out if youíre in Hawaii.

Deep reddy brown with a lacy beige head that forms in drifts at the edges. Deep and rich malty flavours with mango and passionfruit notes. Rich burnished chocolatey flavours with a good nasal dryness and deep cocoa finish. A little too carbonated for me which is a shame as this definitely has promise. Not bad. Good harsh flavours underly its floral nose and it leaves great flavours in the mouth. A little pasteurised and too fizzy but pretty delicious overall.
