luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Had this on-tap at the brewery. The beer poured a clear, light yellow with a small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind good lacing. The aroma was light overall—moderatley hoppy with notes of grass and straw and a trace of honey. The flavor was lightly sweet with a short, lightly bitter finish. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was fizzy.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2005 Had while on the island of Kauai. OK for something brewed in Hawaii, but I will never seek this one out again.

FoolishMortal (989) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2005
12oz. bottle. Golden straw color with a thin film of white head. Muted grainy malt aroma with an additional sweaty sulpher character. Grainy flavors combined with a lemony, grassy hop character. Slight residual sweetness in the finish with some earthen grassiness. Mouthfeel is light, slightly crisp.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a tiny white head and faint lined lacing. Sour yeast (dough, sweat) and malt (meal, straw) aroma with a fruity nose. Straw and grainy malt flavor with sweet yeast and lightly acidic. Light bodied and spicy palate, dry finish.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
On tap at "The Shack" in Kapa’a, Kauai. Very light aroma, some hint of citrus and malt. Pale yellow with a nice creamy white head. Corn, some light malt and a hint of grass in the finish. Lighter body, but not watery. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - NOV 5, 2005
12oz bottle packaged Aug 31 05. Gold color, slightly hazy, no real head...citrus tinged malt aroma is mild. Crisp, moderately bitter finish. Decent lager, but my least liked of the Kona’s I’ve had. A bit better on tap than from the bottle, in my expereince.

Pour is pale golden yellow with a sticky big bubbled fading white head...smell is sweet grains at first with notes of skunky citrus and grass as it warmed...taste is rather chewy and sweet...thick mouthfeel...interesting palate for sure...sweet, grass, wood, skunk...finish is quick and slightly bitter...

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 GABF 05. Pours gold with a faint hops and orange aroma. Flavor is a weak pilsner. Watery palate. RE-RATE Bottle, 11/4/06. Pours faint yellow/gold with an aroma of corn and faint orange. Hints of malt are in there as well. Spikey sour citrus, like a hybrid of lime, lemon, and orange. Dull rounding of the flavors. Thicker palate than last time. Not bad.
