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.

Had the chance to visit the brewery on the big island a couple years ago and loved their selection of beers! Two good things came of this discovery, one being that the whole island serves it so i was able to indulge with most meals and two being now that I know about Kona Brew I’m able to spot it out in stores, purchase it, and share it with friends who haven’t been to hawaii...yet!

Bottle in Honolulu. Solid take on the genre, let down by a slightly chemical first hit, but a pretty solid fruity palate with a lasting sweetness in the finish.
