2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On sale at Liquor Mountain for just 138 yen, they also had Anchor’s Humming Ale for 148 yen. It pours like a typical macro-lager, gold with a fizzy white head. It looks fine. The aroma grains, grass & some biscuit. Medium-bodied the carbonation gives it a slightly rough mouthfeel. The taste isn’t so bad, not syrupy sweet like most macros I really get that cane sugar/brown sugar taste, some light malts and a dash of bitterness at the finish alas I get some wet cardboard too which is a bummer. Ok for a macro.

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.

(draft @ Burger Bar - Las Vegas, NV) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with some corn and hops. Flavor is also sweet with the same corn and hop note along with some cookie dough and light malts. Refreshing and went well with my burger.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Shaker pint draft at the Pineapple Grill at Kapalua golf course on Maui. The pour is clear golden, with not too much of a white head. The aroma is sweet honey malt, a bit of grassiness and not much else. The taste is sweet sugar malt, along with an unclean yeast, grassy dry finish. The palate is light to medium bodied, high level of carbonation and the sweet finish. This was easy enough to drink.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at The Yard House in SD. Pours pale golden with a poofy white head. This is a fairly non-descript ber that I thought was long dead until I saw it at Yard House. I’m surprised that it is even still being kegged. Not the worst, but I’d hate to be trapped on an island with only this. If it is supposed to be something better or special b/c it is brewed in HI, I don’t see it being any different from the Miller swill put into bottles.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Aroma of grass and some lemon. Clear pale straw color, lots of carb rising. Grass, good hopping / mid gets a bit sweet / flattens into a thick, dull sweetness, along with a metallic note. Thin-medium body, some big-time fizz. Full-bodied and fairly flavorful for a light lager. Better than I thought it would be.
