2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty bland, but still okay session brew. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dies instantly. Grainy and slightly sweet nose with a hint of grass and hops. A light taste with grainy malts and a bit of citrus hops. Light body on this one. This is a grainy, bland and boring brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Tap] Pours a clear golden color with a quickly receding white head. Aroma is of cereal malts and light honey sweetness. Cereal malts, sweet grain and mild grassy hops. Hints of fruitiness comes out in the taste as it warms. The body is OK for what it is, but a little on the light side otherwise. Highly carbonated. Pretty standard.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured golden orange hue with a thin head that dissipated quickly. On par for the style: light, crisp, easy drinking. Honey sweetness, barley malt, and earthy hops contribute to most of the flavoring. Also a tropical fruitiness creeping in there.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
drank from the bottle on the beach in Hawaii. Unfortunately, I have to say this is the first Kona beer that actually disappointed me. You can see AB poking their influence in this one. This beer preforms the same role in the Kona porfolio as longboard lager and is decidedly worse - why brew it? Aroma is light floral hops and corn. Flavor is creamed corn and maybe a touch of pineapple on the finihs, medium to light in body. Has an overall bland, slightly chemical taste and feel. Has macro written all over it. Cannot recommend.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. This is a golden beer that has just a bit of haze in it. The flavor and aroma offered light honey, grain, and fruit. Far from exceptional.

in a world of crappy tasteless lagers, this one is a pleasant change. Slightly bitter, hoppy aftertaste, lasts for a few seconds at least. Got in a bottle in Taipei from 7-11.
