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.

Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI
Blond color. The aroma is a bit Cornish, but the flavor even more; dry and smooth mouthfeel. Low bitterness, with a meaty feeling in the final.
Poor.

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.

"a little sweeter aroma and flavor than most in the style, which makes it stand out...a little. a quaffable yellow pee pee water, but still yellow pee pee water. very little hop presence or dare i say, complexity, but refreshing and lacking in skunk."

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Tap at Yard House in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Never saw this beer for sale in Hawai’i. Clear golden pour. Weak, white foam. Nose is vegetal, sticky stale candies, super heavy sweet maraschino cherry, grenadine. Taste is sweet cherry juice box, white sugar cube. Palate is powdery, papery. Very sweet. Not sure what this beer is about besides marketing.
