The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish. 10.3°

Tasted at Chicago Craft Beer Festival. Clear light golden with a thin white head. Very subtle hop aroma. Watery taste. Not much here unless you want something do light you can drink all day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An easy drinking light ale. This beer's Hawaiian heritage definitely shows through - smells like pears and has a tropical fruit aftertaste. Features a floral, almost sweet, hoppy taste, very straightforward. Unusual in that it almost tastes like fruit juice mixed with beer, but makes for a successful refreshing brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

nilsas (1973) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2013
God litt syrlig duft. Fin gyllen farge. Friskt og godt øl med en herlig syrlig smak og en god sittende ettersmak. Et nydelig øl i solveggen eller til mat.

thedm (5002) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 20, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light golden orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was floral and musty. The smooth crisp clean mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of floral hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

maneliquor (3372) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from Mary Jane’s. Like the last guy, a good lawn mower beer. Pretty straight forward with a good dose of hop bitterness. Not too shabby

ThreeCats (623) - ISRAEL - JUN 19, 2013
Foamy head over clear golden body. Aroma of bread, peach, malt, and maybe some ginger. Taste of butter cookies, some ginger, some spice and honey. Palate very light. Actually that pretty much describes the beer: very light. Good lawnmower beer

Livendadream (142) - New Mexico, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle pours clear golden color. Nice head that dissipates quickly. Citrusy fruity floral smell. Very smooth light bodied beer. Nice carbonation dry on the finish. Easy drinking refreshing beer.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass From: Vons in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $12.79 for a variety 12-pack Purchased: June 15, 2013 Consumed: June 15, 2013 Misc.: Born on date of April 25, 2013 Poured a golden yellow clear color with two fingers of frothy white head. Pretty good foamy spiderweb foamy lacing on the sides. Very good retention all the way down on the top. Very surprised with the smell. Was expecting a watery honey flavor, but got a mix of floral hops and citrus hops. Got grapefruit and I think tangerine as well. Got some honey as well. Very nice. Taste wasn’t quite as good as the smell, but decent nonetheless. Got a toned down version of the floral hops and citrus hops. Watery grapefruit, sweet floral notes. Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt watery finish. Clean, crisp and refreshing. I can’t believe how good this beer was. A very nice pleasant surprise.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a thin, white head. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, citrus hops, grapefruit, and light wheat. Flavor is bready malts, citrus fruit, and pine hops. Dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
