Serviceable lager. Only qualm I had was that it couldve had a more interesting finish, like maybe a more unique grassy hop or something.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured amber with a small off white head. Light aroma of malt. A watered down malt flavor. Nothing exciting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On-Tap at the SD Zoo. Poured a honey amber color in the pint glass. Smelled of malt with some sweetness. Tastes very sweet, reminiscent of any yellow fizzy beer except for the sweetness. Palate is crisp with a lingering sweetness. Good and carbonated. Not my favorite beer, but they can’t ALL be my favorite.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma is moderately sweet malt with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor is pretty good for a lager, with a decent grain/malt backbone with some sweetish notes, and a hint of hops. Not bad for what it is.

This is a nice change from other lagers, a little more flavorful. A nice golden color with the smell of grains. Would love to try this on tap... in Hawaii.

Bottle fromk beeronthewall. Clear pale goldpour with aromas of crisp hopcitrus, some pale malt. Tastes pale malty, with some sweet honeyish notes, some mild fruity notes, and some finishing floral spicy notes. Watery palate with not a great deal of complexity.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle with cool Hawaiian label. Nice gold color. It has a lightly bitter, solid, rich flavor with hints of yeast and fruit. Nice aftertaste. This is a superior lager, and like a fine lager should, it would probably go down well in most situations. A pleasant surprise! When I first got it, I was expecting something like Corona - Hawaiian beer, cute label, must be a marketing gimmick, I said to myself. But no - this is the real kahuna.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is a light malt scent. Color is a bright yellow with a slight haze and very good carbonation that produces a thin loose head. Taste is sharp. Starting with a light body it goes down with a sharp feel then a bitter malt flavor that is very corn like. Its not a smooth beer like they say, though it may be a little refreshing. Its also not as smooth as you would expect a Lager to be. I don’t feel its a good beer and not something I would get again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had purchased several Kona beers recently, to either trade or away or to consume. I’ve always enjoyed their Pipeline porter, but this was a nice suprise as well. There was some corn in the aroma, but not over done. Light earthy malts, a nice pleasant sweetness too. Mouthfeel had a nice creamyness for a lager, not overy harsh in any way. Appearance is suprisingly darker than normal, with a nice amber hue and a soft white head. Taste was suprisingly sweet for a lager and quite welcome. A nice hoppy profile tied this all together very nice. One of the better lagers I’ve run across for sure.
