Awkwardly watery and weird tasting beer..... Yuck! Grainy and weird are the best two words to describe it......

GT2 (8176) - San Diego County, 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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 29, 2009
On tap at The Yard House in SD. Pours pale golden with a poofy white head. This is a fairly non-descript ber that I thought was long dead until I saw it at Yard House. I’m surprised that it is even still being kegged. Not the worst, but I’d hate to be trapped on an island with only this. If it is supposed to be something better or special b/c it is brewed in HI, I don’t see it being any different from the Miller swill put into bottles.

12 oz bottle from GM Liquors; Nose of grassy hops and lagery grains. Clear dark gold with a big white head. Flavor is grainy light sweetness with just a hint of background bittering hops.

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.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 2, 2010
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.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear pale yellow with thin fast dissipating head. Sweet aroma with many sugary notes. Sweet candy and malt flavour. Sugary finish, no bitterness. Too sweet to drink again.

gyllenbock (4399) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
Can during a flight with Hawaiian Airlines between HNL and OAK, August 2013. Clear golden with a white head. A typical boring and sweet Pale Lager with a weak aroma and taste of bread, paper and light notes of fruit.
