3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Kona Brewing Company - KoKo Marina Pub, 5.4% ABV
Deep blond color, with generous compact head, leaving a sticky lace. The aroma is perfumy, hoppy, fresh, with delicate fruitiness. The mouthfeel is drier than expected, the flavor is rather anonymous, with some dry malt, and hints of good hops; ordinary bitterness, into a very dry final.
Promising aroma, disappointing flavor.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kumiyama Aeon Mall liquor shop. Good, barny sort of stink, pine nose. Pretty clear straw; lots of carb. Sweaty, dirty hoop initial; mid has piney notes and caramel; nice finish and then in fades very quickly, like a big wave spent. Very refreshing. But way over the top in aroma and hoppiness for the style. Still, I like it.

Pours pale yellow into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Sour hay and caramel aromas. Dry with sweet honey and bread upfront turning sharp in the sour hay finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden yellow with mid-sized head. Some hop aroma, but mainly a bready, malt nose. Flavor is a nice smooth combo of malt with some hoppy notes present. Nicely balanced with a sweetness to it and a smooth finish. Not bad, not bad at all.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head. Smells like a hoppy blond with a touch of doughiness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Well, it's definitely a golden ale. Fruity aroma, very light in hops but has a nice crispness to the finish. Overall a light beer, but I imagine it would be quite enjoyable on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw-colored with a thin head that quickly dissipates to a lacy head. Fairly good hop aroma. Tastes of light malt, pine needles and a hint of coconut. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation. Very dry finish, but perhaps too dry. This would be a decent beer to sip on the beach or at a backyard barbecue.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Fruity hop aroma and so is the taste. Ok malt backbone. An average beer.
