Pours a golden yellow with aroma of corn. Taste of corn and slight metallic. A very dry aftertaste. Tasted like a typical mass produced lager, then I learned it was made by Miller. I wouldn’t but this again, once is enough for me.

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

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.

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

Poured from the tap many years ago in Waikiki. This beer is your basic AAL straw yellow with a small white head. It has a weak beer aroma of malt but I found the flavor to be refreshing, Not a craft beer type flavor but a hot summer day session beer. I am not sure how the new brewery stateside makes it, but the Schlitz brewery had a nice flavor.

As long as Im rating the shittiest beer I can find in the dredges of my fridge, Ill submit this story to the Midnight Society: Imagine a beer with a floating head of a dead polynesian pedophile on its label and think to yourself "well it cant get much worse from here". I would rather be hit over the head with a bottle of this junk than have to have it mysteriously appear in my fridge. Please. Family, stop with the care packages. I can find good beer on my own.

On tap, so I’ll assume that this was the actual Hawaiian product and the contracted Miller product. The pour was thin and clear gold. A short bit of white foam appeared. Not much lacing. The aroma was sugary sweet and lightly corny. The flavor followed suit. A thin pale lager that is dominated by sweetness.

Negative props for authenticity, as this one’s brewed in California with "island" sugar (the islands are not identified lest the current Honolulu government object) but pretty damn drinkable, and happily sugary sweet--good for the "island" heat
