I really enjoyed this when I tried it, a nice heavy flavor for a lager, a slightly bitter aftertaste, but not enough to take away from the experience. I would definitely drink it again.

Luv this beer. Is it available in Australia. Had it on Maui when i was there and could not get it off of my mind when i returned home. IMHO would sell realy well in Australia. Could i import personal quantities if not available here?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nice amber beer with a nice aroma and appearance. However the taste is weak and the alcohol content is low. It has a nice smell but there is something lacking to the actual beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear pale gold with a good sized white frothy head. Good retention and some lacing.
Very mild aromas - mainly light floral perfume and some lemon-lime.
On the light side of medium body and a little soapy. Moderate hop bitterness, and a short clean finish. Having lived in Hawaii, there’s no novelty factor for me. This is so-so.

Bottle. Poured a decent yellow color with a big frothy white head that was gone in a jiffy and left litttle lacing. Nose is strongly of malts and hops. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, and flavor is a little sweet. Mildly bitter finish. A decent lager.

I didn’t even know Hawaii made beers until this one came up on the menu. It was very hoppy, and has very little to no head after a huge frothiness. Tasty with a bit of an aftertaste, overall you would really have to like hops to enjoy although it was nice. Would do again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An aroma of sweet corn and wet paper. A nice golden pour with guey white lacing. A rich malty sweetness that is almost cloy. A teing of bitter at the finish. A decent palate for this one. It is a bit of a surprise in how close it is to being good. Decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A medium yellow brew that supports a large frothy white head.
Weak malt/hop aroma - perhaps soapy.
Thin flavored and bland. Typical pale lager.

Draught - Honolulu, HI. I am more of an ale guy, but this lager is very full flavored and has a good light amber color. Smooth flavor throughout with no surprises. Light hop character. Finishes a little malty, in a good way. If only this beer were a beautiful rich woman that would invite me to live with her on the island...
