2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, brought back by dodo, shared with Parksy. Clear golden body, average white cap that quickly thins and fades. Aroma is grainy, slightly sweet, with a whiff of grassy hops. Palate is pretty much identical, with a dry papery note in the finish. The pale malt is better than average here, with a lightly toasty twist. Not bad.

First beer in Vegas.
Waiter seemed overly thrilled about an amazing Hawaiian beer.
golden pour with white head.
Taste/aroma, light hops, thin notes of malt, crisp and some grainy mouthfeel.
Nothing amazing here.

"a little sweeter aroma and flavor than most in the style, which makes it stand out...a little. a quaffable yellow pee pee water, but still yellow pee pee water. very little hop presence or dare i say, complexity, but refreshing and lacking in skunk."

Honolulu, Hi - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Medium gold pour, light white head, slight lace. Brief wet cardboard aroma. Flavor has some buttery notes, hint of metal, but not terrible overall. Somewhat of an oily mouthfeel. Noticed this beer as soon as I landed in Hawaii and remembered seeing the blue label with a warrior on it as a kid in California years ago.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle for $1.95. Nice. Nose is corny, lightly sweet, some sugar, grain. Just rather sweet and pale lagery. Almost like a different PBR in a sense. Pours golden, thin head leaves quickly. Flavor has corn, grainy malt, sweetness, light crispness in the finish. Not much flavor, standard Miller product flavors here. Thin light body, crisp, thirst quenching. It is what it is. I am not morally opposed to pale lager so my rating might be a little high, but it when looked at within style guidelines it was not that bad really.

I actually knda liked this one, for what it was. Copper, thin ring of foam. Mildly sweet, with a dryis note in the finish. A little bit of grainy flavors, too. Pretty refreshing, actually.

Primo beer is still around? I remember seeing this beer from the Schlitzís 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. Canít detect any sugar in taste but only in aroma. Itís a lot better than the the Schlitz historical 1970s vintage brew but itís still an average macro-style grain beverage with the marketing hype.
