Bottle brought home from Hawaii by Rachel. Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold colour with a white head. Aroma of grain, grass and tropical fruit. Mild bitterness with citrus notes. Light body, rather too highly carbonated for my liking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy light yellow, with barely any head at all. Aromas are light, and there’s a tropical fruit aroma reminiscent of Hawaiian punch, passion fruit and apricots. There’s also hints of toasted bread and a slight touch of roasted nuts to the finish. The taste is not particularily sweet, and has a decent amount of bitter to it, the finish is pleasantly dry. The aftertaste is moderately long, and is where the hop aromas really shine. The mouthfeel is light and sparkly, which goes well with this kind of beer. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample bottle, mainland brewed. Golden color, with a little amber in the center, and a sudsy head. Malty nose is a bit dry for a blond ale. Taste is of a beer that has fermented out just a little bit more, so it’s not as sweet as too many light ales are. This bottle has sat around for a while, but it’s held up nicely, and retains a nice prickly mouthful of bubbles.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
So-so beer. One of those ales with a cardboardy lager finish. But on tap at the flagler beach pier it seemed pretty good--can’t go wrong with the location I guess.

Pour from bottleshare. Gold/amber with slight white head. Aroma of pineapple, orange, grapefruit. Taste is light and crisp - citrus, decent caramel malt. Surprised this is rated so low. I didn’t mind it at all.
