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.

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.

bottle on the beach. Made with sugar cane and you can detect this aspect in the flavor, giving it a sweet - wood like aspect, along with corn starch and water. Light in body, not much going on in the aroma. No offensive, off flavors here, so I can say it will do the job for a light lager on the beach.

A yellow beer with a small fading head. The aroma is corny and offensive as is the taste. I was offended when I drank this beer and was even more offended when I found out who brews it when I got back home from Hawaii.

CelticBrew (827) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Had original beer "Eh, brah, I got beer in my ear..", poured golden and formed huge white foamy head. Aroma of malted corn, light ocean water hops. Flavour much of the same, ends sweet, yet quaffably fresh. Too much will give you a tremendous headache. About $3.99 a sixer, as I recall.

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.

Nik925 (754) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
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.

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.
