3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[June 13, 2009]
Bottled on April 21, 2009. Pours a very bright yellow with a good head. The aroma is white corn and hay, but pretty clean. Low levels of Eruopean hops are apparent. The palate is light, not too light, just right for a yellow lager. This is crisp and clean with no sour or bad vegetation in the flavor. This is refreshing and palatable. It’s good for those rare occassions I want one light lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold, with a touch of cloudiness. Even with an aggressive pour, I was unable to get any sort of head to form.
Aroma: Sweet summer corn, dry malts, and a little bit of bitter hop.
Taste: Honey sweetness, light, dry buscuity malt, bitter, metallic hops, with a fruity, light hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, crisp.
Overall: Probably one of the first craft lagers I have ever had. Has a unique flavor compared to other pale lagers, very refreshing and satisfying.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Easy easy drinking. almost zero head poured, but tons of tiny happy bubbles kept a-commin. A lightly fizzy dirty straw colour with that was slightly hopped - nice quiet bitterness and prominent sweet cirtusy flavour and somewhat creamy. Not a lot in the aroma category and i had a hard time nailing down that part of it. Once again, I’d never say no to Kona Brews cause they go down really fine.

On tap at Dog Tooth bar and grill in Seaside Heights, NJ. 2 Bucks!! Can’t go wrong there. Was surprised to see a Kona on the mainland outside of HI. Much less NJ. Def a decent, easy-drinking summer beer. Recommended.

Smooth and competent. Easy to knock back. Like an agreeable macro lager, with more quality ingredients

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009 Bottle - Pours golden with a small white head...aroma is grain, honey, and only a slight lager skunk...flavour is grainy and rich, slight bitterness and grass...there is an off-putting canned corn presence throughout and lingers a bit, but that was the only real dislike I had...

I do not prefer lagers because the yeast is just not my bag.
this lager however was pretty dang tasty. Especially if your mowing the grass and get very hot. Could slam several of these.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Musty grassy aroma. Light golden body, white head. Mild somewhat spicy flavor, with malt and grass. Surprisingly long finish that is mildly bitter and quite pleasing. This is not at all a bad lager.

I really enjoy this beer, the reviews that say it is boring are unwarranted. What this offers is an extremely smooth lager with exceeding drinkability.
