Tony shared a bottle of this beer iíve 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. Donít 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.

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...

22 oz bottle from Thriftway - Pours a pale golden color with a nice white head. Tastes like a pretty decent pale lager. I donít 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.

Pours a ginger ale colored body, no head. Aroma is yeast, banana and clove. Flavor is bitter and palate is crisp but metallic. An alright beer.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head...Aroma is pale lager with hint of pepper and citrus. Flavor is like a light lager but no gross aftertaste. This is what it is...better than macro pale lagers.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Bottle on the beach. Pours clear golden with a decent bubbly white head. Nose is mostly malt, heavy on the molasses, with a little hoppy spice. Full mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly caramel malt that turns into a weird oniony taste in the finish. Overall, not too bad.
