2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Primo beer is still around? I remember seeing this beer from the Schlitz’s Hawaii brewery back in the late 1970s before I could legally drink the stuff. From 12-oz bottle pours a clear golden pale colored brew with an average size white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring and film top. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of vanilla, sugar, corn, and a hint of floral hops. Taste is light bodied, some metallic texture with flavors of multi-grain malt with corn, a hint of honey and floral hops. Finish is a touch watery, semi-sweet with floral hop and corn aftertaste. Can’t detect any sugar in taste but only in aroma. It’s a lot better than the the Schlitz historical 1970s vintage brew but it’s still an average macro-style grain beverage with the marketing hype.

16 oz. can. Pour (was into my mouth) was light yellow with minimal white head. Flavor is lightly malty and faintly hoppy. It’s pale lager. Really very drinkable, I’d do it again for sure. Pretty thin on flavor and body.

Awkwardly watery and weird tasting beer.....
Grainy and weird are the best two words to describe it......

Drank this from the bottle watching some kids play baseball in the dark. This almost tastes of nothing! But I like the way it feels!

pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head that dissipates rapidly, not much of a lacing.
smell is of corn, pale malt, and grain.
taste crisp, grain, malt, a few hops, and a little funky ending.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is a bit skunky with adjuncts like corn but that may be sugar cane according to the label. The appearance is pale gold with a large head that fizzes away. The taste is malty and lightly bitter-sweet with a dry finish. The palate is right for the style. Overall an interesting concept that does not yield much.

Bottle in Hawaii. Hmmm... interesting. Tastes much better cold which is probably not a good sign I guess. Quite sweet as you would expect from the cane sugar. Let down by slighty chemical aftertaste.

A yellow beer with a small fading head. The aroma is corny and offensive as is the taste. I was offended when I drank this beer and was even more offended when I found out who brews it when I got back home from Hawaii.

Negative props for authenticity, as this one’s brewed in California with "island" sugar (the islands are not identified lest the current Honolulu government object) but pretty damn drinkable, and happily sugary sweet--good for the "island" heat
