2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bottle. Clear gold pour with a small white head. Sweet toasted nose with floral hops. Subtle fruits and hops mixed with a lack of hop flavor. It’s balanced well enough, good carbonation, but feels like it is rushed together. Light to moderate body makes it a good warm weather beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish (one centimetre tall) off-white head. Aroma of light corn, fresh honey, some light pineapple, grass and a bit of light malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Viscous, almost honey like feel at first with sweetness and a potent maltiness that shows some good complexity for the style, then shows a lot of sweetness and a rather mellow subdued finish with sweetness and a good honey and pineapple glow. Overall, a surprisingly good and refreshing beer that shows a lot of the Hawaiin vibe and a bit of a complexity toward the end. Overall, I wasn’t expecting much, due to the low ratings, but found a better than average beer that is definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whaler’s General Store in Poipu Shopping Village in Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii on 07-March-2011 sampled at home on the other end of the United States in Washington on 06-June-2011.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Islands in Honolulu, served in a frozen mug. The beer is a slightly hazy golden color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Sweet malt and mild hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of subtle hops and caramel malt, along with a touch of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hops aftertaste. Alright for what it is overall.

Enjoyed a bottle on Lanai. Golden color. Mild hop and malt aroma. Flavor is similar with nice mild bitterness. Great lunch beer with a burger but forgetable.

Not a bad beer. Tried it when in Hawaii last year, and wasn’t disappointed.
