2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was turned on to this on my recent Hawaiin cruise as it beat out the other BMC choices. Bottle. Poured light yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of corn and wheat. Taste is more of the same with some light fruity notes. Heavy wheat and corn aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly carbonated. Not too bad for a lager, beats bud lite any day.

For my dad. Poured a light yellow with a white head. The aroma was celery, carrots and grass. The taste had carrots with spicy green bell pepper. There was also some nasty moss in the finish. needs less vegetable character and could be cleaner.

Publix Supermarket, Tallahassee, Fl. - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden-orange pour with a light, bubbly white head. Aroma is mainly neutral with some fresh lake water accents, with just a touch of mint. Crisp, refreshing flavor with some grassy notes, and faint traces of hop fruitness. Finish is just slightly metallic. The mouthfeel is rather thick for a lager. Overall, drinkable and smooth.

Bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Bottle, pours golden. Flavor of hay, sweet malt and yeast .Light bodied that finishes spicy, skunky, and dry. Pretty average, but drinkable. I was expecting much worse coming from Hawaii

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2008 Pours like yellow gold w/ a decent head. Froth reduces quickly leaving a thin ring of lace. Aromas of malted skunk malts. Medium nectar w/ ample effers. A malty backbone supports nuances of vanilla, tropicals, all wrapped up with a nice hop bittering component. The finish is bittered nicely and leaves remnants of fruit.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the small brewery and brewpub at Kailua-Kona comes this fresh tasting lager style. It pours like golden sunlight with a one finger head....aroma is lightly toasted malt which transcribes to the overall taste as well. A bit of a bitter finish, but not pronounced. Just the thing for quenching an island thirst as the trade winds blow in off the bay. Incidently for those who like a full flavour, try their Fire Rock Ale.

Bought this 6-pack at Ralph’s in Riverside, CA. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Nice malt aroma. Smooth, clean roasted malt taste. Some hops lingering. Kind of sweet as well. Not too bad of a lager.

This was actually a decent lager. Smooth and clean, with a great roasted malt flavor and just enough bittering hops. Earthy and grassy with a lingering bitter finish.
