This is a good drinkable beer. Taste like Yuengling but with more flavor and done Hawaiian style. If you are ever in the islands, give it a try and/or visit the Kona Brewery.

12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a small, short lived white head. Mild aroma of malt and hops with a hint of fruit. Sweet malty flavour with hops, mild fruit and a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

felsenpils (106) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Bright, clear golden color. Neutral aroma. Light malt taste with a bit of caramel malt sweetness in the aftertaste. The hops are subdued as they should be in a Helles Lager. Good everyday beer. What I cannot figure out is where it was brewed. Hawaii? Oregon? Washington? New Hampshire? No, not in Hawaii, what was I thinking? The website says produced by Craft Brew Alliance which belongs to Anheuser-Busch InBev. According to the Brewers Association, CBA does not meet the definition of a craft brewer. This is a pseudo micro lager.

fiercepanda (513) - Missouri, USA - JUL 25, 2014
A clear yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is bread and citrus. The flavor is hay, light hops, and corn in the finish.

tillmac62 (174) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a good head. Very good lacing and retention. Light nose of slightly sweet biscuit over subtle notes of tropical hops. Very nice medium body for a lager with a touch of creamy texture. Above average carbonation level that imparts a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and also clean and crisp. It begins with a light biscuit sweetness that flows into a crisp effervescent light bitterness. Behind the bitterness is a light tropical tartness from the hops. The finish is crisp and effervesces into a slight dryness.

Snegurochka (385) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2014
355ml bottle from Spar Tomasjord. Pours a clear golden body with small head. Fresh and slightly sweet in both aroma and taste: fruits, nuts and grain. Well balanced, refreshing and slick- lingering, which is nice. On the veranda in the sun 21.07.14

Bottle after my brother's wedding. Sour hay, grass and malt. Fruity and odd.

Dorqui (2094) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled 0,33L. Clear golden color, medium bubbly aspect with long resistance head. Fresh malty and cereals aroma, notes of dried grassy and soft yeast. Prickly and equilibrate bitter palate, good alcoholic content and medium dried fianl.

HuskerTornado (22) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 13, 2014
12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. A clear, golden appearance with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet citrus, bread dough, and sweet malt. Taste is clean, smooth, a bit sweet, and some grassy notes in the malt come to mind up front. Finish is smooth with a some hop bitterness. Overall, not a bad American lager. Very light bodied, but packs enough flavor to be worth a try.
