First time...cold bottle to glass...better aroma than macro but too light in the sinus. Flavor profile to match. Hint of hops at tip of tongue but club soda at the back. Not going to make me a repeat offender.

Standard is all you can say about this. It is light and pleasant but not much else.

Golden with white head; some sediment. Surprising fruity aroma. Taste - notes of tropical fruit, wheat, yeast and light toasted malt. Much better than I was expecting. Drinkable and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz single bottle from Spirits Cross Roads. Poured a super clear gold body with an average to slightly bigger fizzy bright white head. Aroma of grains, some honey bran flakes, corn husk and veggies. The body is thinner to almost medium with stronger carbonation and a super quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a quick burst of malty grains, some dust and finishes with a touch bitter old lemon rind. Blah this is nothing special.

Pour is a clear blonde with a fizzy white head. Aroma is somewhat floral and fruity. Flavor is grainy malt with some sweetness but then a nice hoppyness shows up in the end. It’s a golden ale but with a lot more flavor then most.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a crystal clear, straw colored body with a finger-width, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma has a nice, fresh, crisp grassy and pine hopping with a pleasant grapefruit note. Light, grainy pale malt note behind the hops. Flavor isn’t as crisp and clean, but it’s alright. Some grassy citrus notes with a light pine and a grainy, somewhat bready, lightly sweetened pale malt backing. FInishes lightly bitter and mostly dry with some biscuity notes alongside a few citruses. Medium length aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent golden ale. The aroma was pretty solid and this remained easy drinking and quaffable. Not bad.

A great, session ale with loads of tropical fruit flavor. Perfect for a hot summer day.

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.
