2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
For a "Premium Lager," this sure does have a lot of corn in the nose. And taste. There are some traces of sweet malt here, too, but not many. Hops? Not in my glass. Nice carbonation to this fizzy yellow brew.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Pours to a clear, pale yellow colored body with a medium white head that quickly fades to nothing. The aroma is a bit of light, pale malts, grains, and the barest hints of floral hops. Taste is mild pale malts, corn syrup, and a tiny bit of hop bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonated.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Has some malty tones that get a little bit sweet with some light hops. The flavors compete against each other a bit. Finishes well to bring this lager up to average status.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Bought this one at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Light gold in color with a decent sized white head. Aroma is nice and malty with just a touch of hops under it all. A little metallic and some flowery notes as well. Flavor was very smooth and well blended; sweet malts at the beginning that gives way to a decent bitter hop middle and a smooth and slightly nutty finish. I really liked this one.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Old Chicago in Phoenix. Clear and light golden in colour with a medium sized head. Sweet and a bit malty. Kinda thin and very perfumed and flowery. Has an artificial feel to it sadly.

On tap is superior to the bottled, contract-brewed mainland version. Neither beers have too much going on, however. No flaws to speak of, but leaves us wanting more in the way of flavor. Kona offers an unusually extensive lineup of light, bland beers. My theory is that they think people want those beers since it is so hot in Hawai’i, or that their tourist clientele desires it to go with their pub food--which is fantastic. Seek out their more exciting offerings which will not disappoint.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 A sold well balanced clean lager. Nice clarity with a medium-sized quickly dissipating white head. Bready malt flavor with light hops. Soft silky mouthfeel. A great quencher on a hot day.
