2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
350ml dark bottle, filtered. £2.19 from Beers & Bottles, Southampton. Dry, thin, tasteless malt with some pleasantly fragrant tropical fruit hops. Too thin and dry for my taste. More lager than ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy medium golden body with a white head that ends up as a partially covering film, good lacing. Hoppy and rather strong aroma of sweet tropical fruits, I get peach, pineapple and mango. Quite strong flavour of tropical fruits and citric fruits. Light sweet taste with a very light bitter and rather short finish. Light, thin and a bit watery on the palate, but crisp and refreshing. A nice and easy-to-drink brew if you like the aroma and flavour of hops, but don’t like bitter beers.

Pours clear with no head. Smooth but little taste. Minimum hops and flavor. Overall not a great ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from supermarket in Helsinki. Slightly hazy pale yellow body, small frothy mostly lasting white head, some lacing. Light malty aroma of grain and a bit of caramel with moderate tropical and citric hops. Taste is mildly sweet and acidic at first, turning into a moderately bitter finish with an astrigent feel. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Pleasant summery ale with a fair bit of hop aroma but not unbalancedly bitter. A bit thin maybe.

Ok nothing special. Probably wouldn't buy this. Not a ton of flavor. The kona name is about all

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I poured this ale into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a crystal clear golden body with a quickly diminishing head of white foam. The aroma is lightly hopped. Texture is light and crisp, with a dry edge, and easy on the hops aftertaste. A lawnmower beer, but not too bad. It has some character, though since my tastes lean toward the darker side, this isn’t the beer for me. Easy to drink and not too bad.

Nice golden refresher on the beach with an aroma you can smell as soon as the glass is in your hand. Nice crisp hop flavor and light-medium body.

Clear gold with a white head. A little bit sweet, but not too much, with a floral, fruity taste. A very smooth beer to drink.
