COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Hawaiian-style European lager is most often described as being very smooth with lots of body and some bitterness. It is an all-malt brew with the tropical taste in mind. This lager has a deep copper color with a malty aroma and subtle fruitiness creating a caramel maltiness on the palate with a sweet malt aftertaste.

Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma has some green apple notes, along with citrus hops. Sweet and resinous hoppy flavour with a somewhat unpleasant (tannic?) bitterness.

CapFlu (4524) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2010
(Draught) Sampled at Cafe Pesto in Hilo, Big Island, Hawaii. Pours a frothy white top and a light gold, mildly carbonated body. Nose is milky with a slight grain undertone. Crisp, tangy lemon flavour with a white pepper finish. Good.

Bottle. Has a nice amber color with moderate carbonation and medium head. Smell is of sweet malts. Taste is also of sweet malts with medium body and finishes with little bitterness.

Honolulu,Hi. - Honolulu Airport - Island Brews bar - on tap. Medium gold pour, white head - good lacing. Neutral aroma. Full bodied lager flavor with some nuttiness and a hint of grassiness. Crisp mouthfeel. Decent.

Had this while on vacation in Hawaii, or maybe on the plane, not sure. Decent stuff, nothing special.

12 ounce bottle in Honolulu. First impression is a corn stalk like aroma. Sweet on the front, sweet on the back. I like the color for a lager, a nice honey like amber. I like it for what it is.

From a bottle poured a golden colro with a fair amount of head. Nice sweet spicy flavor with a quick finish.

Had a very strange grassy smell. Not too pleasant. Decent lager though, quite full bodied. Nothing to get excited over, but I wouldn’t knock it back if offered.

Another decent entry from Mehana. A darkening amber beer with better than average head which never totally dissapeared. No lacing. A dry malty aroma that was perhaps a little too weak but pleasant enough with a bit floral added. Good mild matly taste and some weak hops in the background made this stuff pretty smooth but a tad lacking in flavour. Drink this ice cold or while lashing out at friends with death threats. Emptied the glass quite quick. I’d have no problem have a case in the house.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2009
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head that mostly dissipates, clear light-amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon.lager, some apple. Taste is medium sweet, lemon, bread, light apple. Light-medium body, light acidity, easy drinking.
