Pours golden. Weak palate, but somewhat strong sweetness. Cheap taste. Nothing to write home about,but tolerable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had the original (bottle, not draft) in Hawaii many, many years ago, tasted sweet, like Bud. Read the label, brewed in California, not that it means anything, but I wanted something exotic... not something brewed right near where I flew in from. Saw it on "Three Sheets" a couple of weeks ago and they said it was "all new" and brewed with "Island sugar." Grabbed a six here locally, tastes sweet, like Bud, still brewed in California, with the "Island sugar" shipped in, as the case with many other macro beers? Overall not a bad "Budsy" beer... Aloha and Cheers!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is basically an island bud light. Disappointed to hear the bottles are brewed in CA and only the kegs in HI. Very little aroma which matches its very little taste. If u just want to chill and drink a light lager while helping to preserve the environment and culture of The Islands, this is will get the job done.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer to me isn’t very good. First off label is misleading. This is not a Hawaiian beer. Taste like a sweeter bud light to me. Overly carbonated. Overall not very good at all. On the plus side at least its affordable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taste from Big Braddah can brought back to mainland by Otto. If rated just as a lager, the score would not be as high. I am rating this more as an experimental beer. For a beer designed to show off "Pure Island Cane," it does so well. It is definitely sweet, but finishes surprisingly clean with all the sugar.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This beer has almost no aroma and a very light taste followed by a slightly bitter after taste. I did not know this was a Miller product when I purchased it. Not that it would change my opinion but I feel a little duped in that I thought I was buying a microbrew. Live and learn I guess.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The best thing about htis beer is it’s beautiful pale golden color. Light, gritty underflavor like sandy or dust. Can taste a little exotic fruit in the aroma, but all-in-all it’s rather bland. As others have said, just one short step up from the industrial pale lagers like Budweiser. Slakes thirst, does not quench appetite for a quality drinking experience.
