Had on tap and the lines must have been very dirty for how horrible this brew tastes. I will rate as I tasted and re-rate at another date.

Beautiful golden lager color. Pours a rather thin head with some, but minimal lacing. Very refreshing, though. Interesting flavor, nice and malty. The flavors remind me of the islands. Some say that this lager was cloudy...mine was as crystal clear as the waters off of Hawaii. Good stuff, bra!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden with a quickly dying head. On the light side of being medium-bodied, but it had some substance to it. Smoothly carbonated. Curious flavors and aromas. Malts had a wholegrained flavor -- wholesome and nutty. Hops were herbal and earthy, leaving behind a grassy bitterness in the finish. Had a little spicy zing, too. Kind of odd, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Some hoppy bitterness. This is a cross between a lager and a pale ale. Slightly hazy. Thin white head. Golden body. No visible carbonation and not much lace. Decently bitter. Not very well made but reasonably enjoyable. A little too much diacetyl. Somewhat doughy. Reasonably good; better than I thought it would be.

Golden body and soapy white head. Aroma is buttery with some light citrus notes. Flavor has a lime quality to it, moderate sweetness, and light bitterness. Has a tangy, syrupy thing going on. Not too bad as far as lagers go.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden color,small white head that faded quickly and left little behind.The aroma was light malt mild fruit (citrus) maybe some bannana and a mild hint of hops.The taste was nothing special,Mild malt some hops and a bit of fruit but little more.Thin feel and a mild malt hop after taste.Not bad but then again not great.Itís a fairly easy drinker but nothing great on flavor making it a decent summer brew but little else.

Pours a lite yellow with a fair fluffy head. Aromas of sweet malts and honey. Nice flavors with a lot of residual sweetness, which takes away from the thirst quenching qualities. Definitely some honey flavors.

Pours a light amber color with a white head that falls quickly. Aroma had a faint hint of hops and a slight citrus nose. Taste was vary plain and not much to it, slightly watery. Ok lager, but to plain for my taste.

Sampled at Solana Beach Pizza Port: Pours a light hazy color with an attractive white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, bananas, and yeast. Hops are also around. Flavor is yeasty bananas with an earthy hop profile. Body is a tad watery. Good for the style.

Bottle from Locomotive Liquor, Palm Springs. Slightly hazy colouring, like a Hefe Hell. Poured with a fluffy ring of white head. Smells like Summer rain on tarmac. A pretty pleasant Lager. A sustained bitterness, with tiny hints of bubblegum in the finish. Resists the standard Lager fizziness and crispness, instead delivering a flat and bitter mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
