SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 29, 2009
On tap at The Yard House in SD. Pours pale golden with a poofy white head. This is a fairly non-descript ber that I thought was long dead until I saw it at Yard House. Iím surprised that it is even still being kegged. Not the worst, but Iíd hate to be trapped on an island with only this. If it is supposed to be something better or special b/c it is brewed in HI, I donít see it being any different from the Miller swill put into bottles.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bomber. Clear gold with a huge white head that reduces quickly. Rather sweet nose, malty and somewhat corny, light grain. Flavor is grainy with a somewhat chemically grass. Finishes surprisingly dry. Meh. Borders on crappy, but I have nothing else to drink right now, so I guess Iíll find the bottom of the bottle...

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JUN 18, 2009
This is a fairly good, basic pale lager and better than most macro lagers of the type. Itís gold with a medium white head steadily dissipating to a thin ring. The aroma is a pleasant, full-bodied US adjunct/pale lager character, mostly a full, strong grain with hints of apple and grass, rather like Pabst. It has nothing off or unpleasant aside from a very faint hint of perfumy soap. The taste is light and very simple, but pleasant, firm, and consistent, again a bit like PBR. it has a lot of grain with faint grass and apple peel, with a grain aftertaste with faint grassy bitterness. Unlike PBR, the overall character thins out more and becomes a bit more bland and watery after the first few sips, with the grain taste becoming weaker. Itís drinkable and pleasant for what it is.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Pours a typical pale lager yellow with a large fluffy head. This, as one would expect, is repackaged MGD. Weak flavor, metallic aroma. Mouthfeel is dead and watery. Nothing good or special about this whatsoever, except maybe for the nice packaging scheme. Overall, poor.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2009
First beer in Vegas. Waiter seemed overly thrilled about an amazing Hawaiian beer. golden pour with white head. Taste/aroma, light hops, thin notes of malt, crisp and some grainy mouthfeel. Nothing amazing here.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 8, 2009
12oz bottle. Clear straw with a weak white head. Light mineral and grainy aroma. Very light sweet flavor with a hint of corn. Pretty much no hops, so it finishes a little sweet despite the lightness. Thin and very carbonated. Nothing nasty, but pretty flavorless.
