I guess it is a red stripe knockoff. Got it from a place in Anaheim where Ron and I picked up a Mickey’s. Now enjoying while watching fireworks. Fruity, grassy aroma with some coconut. Zero taste or flavor. Very foamy. points for no off-taste. It’ll have to do.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Gold pour, much better than the typical pale lager, the head retention isn’t too bad either. Slight sweet malt aroma. A little sweet, no hop character at all, decent drinker.

Wortth a try, a bit sweet with unfamiliar aromas of mash and grass, not exactly pleasant. Drinkable but not really worth the $7.99 price. Brewed in CA with a Hawaiian brand.

marcus (8000) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and a light malt aroma. It has enough fmalt lavor to be drinkable, but is otherwise unremarkable.

Bottle from Wine and Spirits World in Vacaville. Golden color with a temporary white head. Aroma is mostly grainy. Flavor is mostly grainy, but there is substance. Decent body and light carbonation. Traces of grassiness. Better than many products of the macro brewers.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2009
On tap at O’Tooles on Oahu. Pretty simple island lager/beach style beer. Pretty refreshing. Not a lot of aroma or flavor, but good for a quick drink on the beach.

Pours pale yellow with a bobbly white head. Corn and some bready malt in the nose and flavor. Quite bland.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 Faint sugar bouquet. Much more deep golden than any other lager Ive had. Its very easy to drink and matter of fact way too easy. Im guessing that its 4-4.5% alcohol. This is the perfect beach beer. Screw Corona this is what I want when on the beach or anywhere in the Sun. It is a bit sweeter than the typical lager.

Primo is BACK! I had this in Maui over Thanksgiving 2008. Pale yellow pour with white head that fades quickly. A nice nose that’s sweet and pleasant. Little hops/barley. Very smooth. A great thirst quencher. This stuff really hits that spot on the back of your throat. For such an otherwise mild, unassuming brew, this is very nice.
