Draft. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Fairly neutral aromas of wet grain and mild grassy hops. Grainy and oddly heavy malt flavor with a long mineral finish. Bland, and not terribly refreshing in spite of a light body.

Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI. Clear straw color with a small white head. Mild hops, mild bitterness, papery dryness and grainy maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is dry hops, mild fruitiness, papery dryness and malt. Very easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste comprises light vanilla, citric zing, light bread dough, straw, trace of caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp clean close.
