(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.

theisti (3590) - Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2012
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.

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. Iím surprised that it is even still being kegged. Not the worst, but Iíd 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 donít see it being any different from the Miller swill put into bottles.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 24, 2014
On sale at Liquor Mountain for just 138 yen, they also had Anchorís 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 isnít 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.
