1.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Too sweet, slightly skunky. Iím drinking one now that sat in the fridge until I ran out of everything else.
You know, itís bad enough that Fosterís ("Australian for beer") is really made in Canada. But here we have a so-called "Island Lager" with a Hawaiian-sounding brewery name (Kona Brewing Co.), people on the label surfing, and so on. But itís actually made in freaking New Hampshire. Is there a lot of surfing in New Hampshire? Is New Hampshire an island? The beer is almost as bad as their marketing strategy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml, flaske, 4,6 % ABV, BB: 31/05/16, købt i Netto i Valby, 3. august 2015.
Gylden, filtreret og let boblende Pale Lager med fin hvid tætskummende top på ungefär 3 cm.
Let aroma, sødlig af majs og pilsnermalt-nuancer af korn.
Dejlig let smag og en anelse mere sødlig end i en europæisk Pilsner/Lager. Let bitterhed og intet surt eller salt. Sprød og frisk.
Let krop med en middel karbonering samt en lækker glat konsistens. Eftersmagen er let bitter og let sød.
I visse tilfælde af øl kan mødet med sødme være helt sort, men her fungerer det virkelig. Den er frisk, sprød og delikat på en rolig måde. Rigtig behagelig tørstslukker.

Rated based on notes taken 30 Sep 2012 -- Sure Iíll drink this trap of a "craft" brew. Unfortunately it is still a pretty good brew, despite itís ownership.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. Nose has dried green plants, citrus, flowers. A bit shy on flavour where the lager yeast shows some sulphor with some grain and hay also. Not crisp and bright as the nose had me hoping but more sweet and slightly sticky with little bitterness, which doesnít work too well. Flat sticky finish. Drinkable at best. Silly to import this.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
APPEARANCE- very light golden yellow - reminiscent of many lagers.
NOSE- All ílagerí smell (still am not certain what that is), I donít even get much in the way of typical lager style earthy/grassy hops.
FLAVOR- Very light. Refreshing. Not much to it.
NOTES- Probably perfect for sitting on the beach.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Pours golden clear with a fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is of malt, straw, and grass. Doesnít smell all that great. Taste is of malt, grass, and straw. Pretty bland in the taste as well. Lingering grassy flavor. Not much to this at all. Its not horrible, its just very bland.

Its okay but it seems their not shipped from the islands. Apparently they contract with some main land breweryís to brew and bottle for them.

On tap. Served a light golden color with a nice head that fades quickly. Aroma of light citrus bit of malt sweetness and grain. taste of light malt sweetness and bit of citrus. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Light body, smooth and quite refreshing. Nice beer for the hot weather that goes down easy.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copenhagen 16/7 2015. 35 cl bottle from Rema 1000. Fine little drawing of people surfing on the label. Pours clear yellow with small white head. Dissipates immediately. Aroma is bland. Malty, salty - but not very distinct. Medium carbonation. Taste is quite anonymous. Malty with light hops and a little fruit in the aftertaste. Refreshing but totally forgettable.

Moderately sweet, doughy malts, some light hops and fruitiness. Not bad for what it is.
