1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Major disappointment from Kona here. Dull in every way. Bland and dull cereals are all that makes an appearance. Dull from first appearances with it’s stale look and moth eaten head. Dull all the way to the useless finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Definitely Kona’s least impressive brew. Pours pale gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma has straw, sugar, and some light malt. Flavor doesn’t have much else going on of interest.

Tap at the Honolulu Airport. Golden colored pour with medium sized white head. Malty nose, but not a lot else. Light malty finish, with very little hops. Drinkable.....

<i>courtesy of MadDan</i> - hazy golden-blond colour with a little persistant white foam; gentle aroma of almonds and caramel; medium-bodied and quite sweet; moderate bitterness, clean palate and a subtle carbonation, quite long almondy finish - a decent session beer

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Koko Marina. Poured a clear gold color with a one finger white head. Aroma of malt and a bit of grassy hops. Flavor was malty with a faint hop bitterness. The flavor was slightly disappointing, even though I didn’t expect too much from a golden ale.

Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malt, corn. Flavor is malt, corn, fruits, a touch of hops. A little sweet in the finish, but not too memorable.
