3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting and distinctive lager. Aroma is mild, but pleasantly hoppy with a tropical fruit background. Appearance-wise, this beer features decent head retention with great lacing, especially when fresh. Surprisingly pale for the hoppiness of the taste. That being said, the hoppiness is well balanced and not bitter, flavorful but not overbearing. Leaves the palate fairly clean and refreshed, with an almost fruity aftertaste. A good lager that is almost cross-over with an American pacific pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from an Esselunga supermarket in Lucca. Pours clear and golden with a frothy white head. The aroma contains lots of malts, grain, hay and some citrus. It tastes medium sweet and ends light bitter. Watery texture and light body, but very, very refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is cloudy gold straw with thin head. Aroma is a bit funky with some honey notes and some unfortunate cardboard and marmite notes. Flavour is slight sweet upfront with thin mid palate and minimal hop finish. Not the greatest beer from kona sadly.

Easy to drink, but that’s not always a good thing. While I generally find Kona to have good beers relative to their size as a brewery, their flagship lager falls short in a big way. Enjoyed in a bottle.

Nice color, pours nice. Not much of an aroma. It is a lager, but a rater boring one. Overall an Okay lager, but nothing special
