2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brew pub in lahaina. Colour is a little light for a amber. Thin head. Aroma is a bit lagery. Flavour is better definitely a hint of the caramel malt. Pretty light, though I don’t like many amber’s so this held its place on my palate. Palate was thin. Lightly carbonated.

An amber?? I thought that this was Bikini Blonde relabeled. Didnt take notes but this was unassuming and plain but not offensive in any way. Good enough. Carry on.

On tap at Maui brewing ... very, very little bodied. This was about the lightest most watery beer I think I have ever tried. It does has a hint of honey at the finish but overall did not enjoy this at all .. would not recommend.

Shaker pint draft at the Hula Grill on Kaanapali Beach in Maui (this beer is brewed exclusively for Hula Grill / Barefoot Bar - though I also saw it on draft at the MBC Brewpub). The pour is clear golden with a bit of a white head. The aroma is a touch of honey, sweet malt and a touch of dry earthiness. The taste is pretty sweet, the honey (not cloying, just big natural honey) and the sweetness of the malt join forces to become the dominant flavor. The earthy hops are present in the back, though are a flat and bitter. The palate is light to medium bodied, fairly low carbonation level, and a dry earthy finish. The honey is present, and moves this beer out of my personal taste preference.

Lots of honey aroma. Amber color with a nice head with decent lacing. Taste is very sweet with lots of honey. Mouth is pretty full. Bready with some honey in taste. The honey isn’t weird either like other honey beers I’ve tried. Not too bad!

Sample at Maui Brewing in Lahaina. Poured a solid golden with thin head that vanished quickly. Aroma was slightly sweet with some hops. Taste was cloyingly sweet and honeyed. Not a great deal of depth here. Perhaps a one off that needed a little more tinkering.
