This is a fairly good, basic pale lager and better than most macro lagers of the type. It’s 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. It’s drinkable and pleasant for what it is.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Had on 7/4/12. Not much to say about this average lager besides the good carbonation and lacing I?m assuming from the pure cane. Good to try once but wouldn?t drink again.

22oz bottle...OK, site and setting were everything (chugged it out of the bottle on the balcony of our room in Kauai over looking the sparkling blue Pacific). Enjoyed it thoroughly and was very satisfied with this not-really-from-Hawaii Hawaiian beer. Back in Michigan this undoubtedly would not fair so well...

Tony shared a bottle of this beer i’ve never heard at Oldsmar Tap House. Thanks! i thought this would be an interesting beer to try. I love how nowhere on this bottle it notifies you that its a miller coors product. anyway this beer blows. pours a light golden with a lightbeer head. aroma has a bit of spices to it. maybe some pepper. not much else. taste sucks, malty rice patty, its a mess. no mouthfeel. Don’t drink this.

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.

22 oz bottle from Thriftway - Pours a pale golden color with a nice white head. Tastes like a pretty decent pale lager. I don’t think there would ever be a great beer in this category, so this is probably fairly close to as good as it will get.

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

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.
