A pretty standard pale lager. When fresh from an ice bath it is quite refreshing and void of most flavor. A hint of hop bitterness rounded out with light malt sweetness. As it warms on the beach it gets quite off-putting. Nothing to see here, move along.

I guess it is a red stripe knockoff. Got it from a place in Anaheim where Ron and I picked up a Mickey’s. Now enjoying while watching fireworks. Fruity, grassy aroma with some coconut. Zero taste or flavor. Very foamy. points for no off-taste. It’ll have to do.

12oz bottle. Clear straw with a weak white head. Light mineral and grainy aroma. Very light sweet flavor with a hint of corn. Pretty much no hops, so it finishes a little sweet despite the lightness. Thin and very carbonated. Nothing nasty, but pretty flavorless.

First beer in Vegas. Waiter seemed overly thrilled about an amazing Hawaiian beer. golden pour with white head. Taste/aroma, light hops, thin notes of malt, crisp and some grainy mouthfeel. Nothing amazing here.

The aroma is a bit skunky with adjuncts like corn but that may be sugar cane according to the label. The appearance is pale gold with a large head that fizzes away. The taste is malty and lightly bitter-sweet with a dry finish. The palate is right for the style. Overall an interesting concept that does not yield much.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle from Oahu. Pours a clear glowing lighter golden with a fizzy frothy white head. Grassy aroma with a light sweetness. Somewhat clean flavor, light bitterness, light sweetness, touch of faint apple, doughy, softer malty, with lasting bitter aftertaste.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2010
The flavor is a little grainy and some grassy notes. Nothing special going on here. In the aroma category it’s pretty basic with some grains. Pours a golden color with a quick disappearing white head and some patchy lacing The finish is pretty clean and crisp. Has some grassy notes there. It’s pretty easy drinking. If your looking for a mindless beer this may be it.

Title_10 (22) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2011
This is basically an island bud light. Disappointed to hear the bottles are brewed in CA and only the kegs in HI. Very little aroma which matches its very little taste. If u just want to chill and drink a light lager while helping to preserve the environment and culture of The Islands, this is will get the job done.
