3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 11/25/13 and poured 2/12/14.
Appearance: First, I like the shape of the bottle and custom design. Pours clear, pale yellow. Alright lacing. Tiny head.
Smell: Pleasant. Little sweet. A light hop aroma. Some malt. A bit grainy. Basic, but a solid smell. The hoppy note was a nice little surprise.
Taste/feel: Good brew. Thin feel with moderate carbonation. Good drinkability at only 4.4%. Solid hop flavor without a lot of bitterness. Slight malt sweetness at the end. A good amount of grain Simple, but done very well.
A definite summer, or to be more precise, beach beer. Light, refreshing, nice bit of hops, highly sessionable ABV... could have been a very "eh" beer, but it’s actually very solid for the style. Not super interesting, but tasty enough. Would definitely have this one again, especially in the heat when I want something light. My first (and certainly not last) beer from Kona. Mahalo!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear gold brew with white head. Very nice aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is somewhat weak malt at the start and a watered down hops in the finish - kind of a surprise given the great aroma. Palate is watery. For a golden ale it is OK.

Fruits, pine and some malts in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter.Light body with a average carbonation. Not bad, good aroma, but the flavour and mouth feel disappoint me a bit.
