Not much aroma to it but it does have a nice taste. While typical of most lagers this one is a bit better than most. It has a nice balance to it that gives a malty flavor at first sip but then the hops began to show themselves giving it a bitter finish. The Hawaiian words with translations under the cap are cool too. Wonder how many a person would have to drink to learn to speak Hawaiian.

Bottle pours a clear pale yellow with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet malts mostly. Flavor begins fairly sweet, some grassy, earthy notes, mild hops, and finishes with a slight bitterness. Quite smooth and refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with hardly any head or lace. Nose is pale malts. Flavor is the same with a not so pleasant finsih. I could chug this (which I did) but I can’t see drinking this regularly or ever ordering it on tap.

T- Crisp and malty with hints of metallic flavor which quickly subside.
M- fairly thin and very carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not much of an aroma, albeit malty with a standard gold pour. One finger white head, little bit of lacing. From here on out it is best described as an earthier, slightly more bitter Corona Extra.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at Safeway in Davis, CA. Aroma is full of vegetables, corn, and some DMS. Mild grassy hoppiness is also present. Not too pleasing. Transparent golden body with a small-medium white head and scant lacing. Light spicy hop flavors to start, becoming creamy and milk-flavored in the middle Plenty of doughy malts. Finishes quick and grassy. Slightly metallic, too. Fair enough.
