0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This looked pretty good, esp. for a lager. Optimistic that a this was a Pabst sugar-cane lager. Horrible. I can’t be certain that the palate was a 1 as it was hard to get over the bad taste. Got it at an island grocery so figured it was somewhat fresh. ’Refreshing on a beach’...blah blah...drink some water to hydrate yourself if you are thirsty and then get a good beer and watch the sunset.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a typical pale lager yellow with a large fluffy head. This, as one would expect, is repackaged MGD. Weak flavor, metallic aroma. Mouthfeel is dead and watery. Nothing good or special about this whatsoever, except maybe for the nice packaging scheme. Overall, poor.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From the big braddah can, watching the sunset on Maui. This beer is like any island lager or any American lager for that matter. Blah, but its what’s in the fridge, drank all the Maui and kona beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours light golden with thin, foamy head. Aroma is sweet malted barley. Flavor begins with subtle malt sweetness followed by barley and lots of fizziness. It finishes with some more maltiness and a slightly sour aftertaste. Not a whole lot of flavor going on here but it’s a decent option for chugging on a hot day.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle thanks to my bro out in Cali. Pours a nice gold color with a nice thick and persistant head. Smells of corn malt and grain. Tastes like fermented corn, a lil grass, and nice dense body. Aftertaste is semi-sweet. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Primo is BACK! I had this in Maui over Thanksgiving 2008. Pale yellow pour with white head that fades quickly. A nice nose that’s sweet and pleasant. Little hops/barley. Very smooth. A great thirst quencher. This stuff really hits that spot on the back of your throat. For such an otherwise mild, unassuming brew, this is very nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another brew enjoyed while vacationing in Maui, Hawaii. When I saw this on the cooler shelf I knew I had to try it for two basic reasons; (1) it was the last one on the shelf, and (2) I have never tried it before and have never seen it in my area! This brew had a fantastic flavor that was making me take it nice and slow so that I could enjoy it for as long as I could! This brew is made with pure Hawaiian cane sugar and that makes for one fantastic tasting brew! This is truly wonderful as the company for this brew falls under the Pabst/Miller corporate structure and they have graciously kept from meddling around and mucking up the production of this tasty brew!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a fairly good, basic pale lager and better than most macro lagers of the type.
It’s gold with a medium white head steadily dissipating to a thin ring.
The aroma is a pleasant, full-bodied US adjunct/pale lager character, mostly a full, strong grain with hints of apple and grass, rather like Pabst. It has nothing off or unpleasant aside from a very faint hint of perfumy soap.
The taste is light and very simple, but pleasant, firm, and consistent, again a bit like PBR. it has a lot of grain with faint grass and apple peel, with a grain aftertaste with faint grassy bitterness. Unlike PBR, the overall character thins out more and becomes a bit more bland and watery after the first few sips, with the grain taste becoming weaker. It’s drinkable and pleasant for what it is.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
