On tap at some Mexican restaurant near Kona. Started badly, finished better. Strangely much better with Mexican food, which made it start tasting like a rich fruity pale ale.

Everything is just so weak...save appearance. No surprise wirh Kona offerings. This definitely needs to accompany food.

Meh. Lightly sweet, malty aroma and flavors. Okay beer. Smooth. Mildly bitter. Not a great brew at all but not terrible either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii, served in a shaker. Pours clear reddish-amber with a moderate off-white head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has medium herbal hops with grass, caramel toffee and a hint of pine. The flavour is balanced between medium herbal hop bitterness and toffee and grainy notes from the malts. The finish is medium-long and somewhat hoppy and spicy. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice hoppy red ale with decent balance and nice malty notes. 2013-08-17
