3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Draft at Duke’s in Waikiki. Clear pale gold with a short white head. Saccharin and rice cake pale malt, DMS / creamed corn, cosmetics, little bit of fruit gum. Sweet with a light body, watery malt, starchy and husky smelling after it opens. Messy and simple. Pretty awful.

gyllenbock (4083) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
On tap at Kona, KoKo Marina, August 2013. Clear golden with a small white head. Thin with notes of light malt and some notes of citrus. Nothing to write home about.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 6, 2013
This is you typical weak beer that every brewery has for the non beer drinkers in the group. Too light with very little flavor.

baraciisch (1523) - USA - APR 18, 2013
Light clear yellow in color... Aroma is sweet, slightly funky... Maybe some notes of honey... Flavor is crisp and sweet, honey and light malts... Very light bodied... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Draught at Kona Brewing Company - KoKo Marina Pub, 5% ABV
Blond color, with compact head. The aroma is almost indifferent. The mouthfeel is weak and dry, with minimal crispy malt; ordinary bitterness, without hop qualities.
It could help the thirst in a warm climate, not much more.

dfinney23 (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pretty bland, if inoffensive. There are better blondes to be had, even brewed in Hawaii.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Clear golden color with lasting white sheen. Nice dank, spicy hop aromas. Smooth medium body. Bready pale malt, light fruits, floral hop flavors with a crisp finish--not too bad.
