Rated from memory, but I drank a lot of these on Hawaii. Routine lager, but fresh and cheap.

Pours pale yellow with a bobbly white head. Corn and some bready malt in the nose and flavor. Quite bland.

Can - unable to pour from can, but pretty typical pale lager, nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Overall, this beer was terrible, it was about as vile a beer as they come. Ill avoid it like the plague form now on.

Fatehunter (1468) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Almost a half finger of head on a clear, medium straw colored body. The aroma is faint overall: a little grain. The taste is mild bitterness and a little sour with a touch of sweetness at the end. Not much to it though. The texture is meh with moderate carbonation and light body. This beer cannot even manage to be "light and refreshing" for the hot island/beach environment.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2009
On tap at O’Tooles on Oahu. Pretty simple island lager/beach style beer. Pretty refreshing. Not a lot of aroma or flavor, but good for a quick drink on the beach.

RedSox2004 (1384) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Pale yellow with a small bright white head that disappeared quickly and left little lacing. Syrupy corn and sugar sweetness - I guess that was cane sugar, but does it matter? Light body, harsh mouthfeel, and a belabored carbonation.

beernbourbon (1357) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2010
16 oz. can. Pour (was into my mouth) was light yellow with minimal white head. Flavor is lightly malty and faintly hoppy. Its pale lager. Really very drinkable, Id do it again for sure. Pretty thin on flavor and body.

onystrom (1321) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2011
Clear yellow color with small head. A bit of bitterness in the finish, grassy flavor not much else and weak palate.

Bottled sample from Hawaii. Could tell by looking at it that this beer would have an inferior tinny taste. Was correct. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
