Hops: Simcoe, for bittering and Vanguard, for flavor and aroma

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
The bar had this listed on their menu as íSunset Lager.í Expecting a bland light lager, I was happily surprised when the beer arrived and was dark in color with a good balance between caramel malt and hoppy aroma. A very good pale and and well balanced.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUN 12, 2008
bottle. Pours a light caramel color with a fast disappearing head. Not attractive. Nose is of sweet malt and caramel. Flavor consists of one sided sweetness with a slightly bitter finish. Palate also leaves something to be desired. This is simply a marginal beer.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 24, 2008
22 oz bottle, purchased at Foodland, Princeville, Kauai. Pours a dark red color. No aroma whatsoever. Pretty typical Amber, although this is much more malty than other Ambers I have had recently. Overall, there is nothing about this beer that stands out. I think the fact that I am sitting here on a lanai staring out at the Napali Coast is causing me to be generous with my rating.

junon (388) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Looks good. Looks strong. I must agree with other raters and say not much aroma. Taste is there though. Reminds me of Sierra Nevadaís Celebration Ale. Maybe not quite as packed by enough to make me raise in eyebrow. Not bad. EDIT: (02/25/09) Retried as Hawaii Nui Sunset. Supposedly the merger brought on better quality control. This time around Im getting chocolate.

deep amber pour with a tiny bit of froth at top. roasted malts and fruits on the nose along with a slight syrup scent. nice thickness and a great malt taste with notes of chocolate.

I thought this beer was a little disappointing. A decent hop aroma but not a whole lot of flavor here. Amber color with a thin head. Description says bittersweet chocolate complexity? I donít remember this at all.
