3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber with a very thin white head that dissipates almost instantly. It has an aroma of both strong citrusy hops as well as a fairly strong scent of sweet, lightly roasted malt. It tastes of grapefruity hops with a hint of malty sweetness in the background. Overall, a very good beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 46°. Color is a bright golden brown with mellow carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a sweet sugar cookie scent with some light hops in back. Body is a lighter medium that goes down easy with a crisp feel. Finish is a malty grain like taste with a moderate bitterness and just a faint hop taste. After taste is a little bland with the bitterness hanging on. Overall its a boring little Pale Ale.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 lucent-copper, thin white head, medium-full body, medium carbonation.
seems standard american pale ale but with a hint of sticky sweetness common in american standard lager (could be adjunct - not sure). Caramel malts are balanced by a complex american hop profile.

Pours copper with a thin white head. Smell is of caramelmalt. Tastes of sweet malt, some licorice. A mildly bitter finish. The hops were difficult to place as so mild, more resin than citrus to my palate. Leaves some lacing behind. Refreshing.

The home brew I had prior to this was much better. Pours orange red with some bubbles and almost no head. Basic aromas of caramel and light citrus. Taste fades away quickly, leaving just a peppery bitterness to linger.

Great beer from Kona! Pours a clear illuminating orange colour. Decent sized head initially. Aroma is very floral. Fresh and full with citrus all over the nose. TAste is very mild on the hops. Well balanced. Best way I can describe this beer. Just a really fantastic easy going pale ale. Taste is delightful and floral with some cinnamon and caramel undertones.

This is a tasty if fairly standard pale. Sweetish malty body, a touch of caramel to it. Grassy hops in the finish. Medium body. Very drinkable.

Shared by HogTownHarry with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Golden orange with a small white head. Aroma: A little malty with black breakfast tea, a little floral hops but not much. Flavour: Hops with tea again, roasty, a tiny bit woody with a bitter finish. Not bad.
