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. Iím surprised that it is even still being kegged. Not the worst, but Iíd 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 donít see it being any different from the Miller swill put into bottles.

IrishBoy (3923) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
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.

gyllenbock (5556) - 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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bomber. Clear gold with a huge white head that reduces quickly. Rather sweet nose, malty and somewhat corny, light grain. Flavor is grainy with a somewhat chemically grass. Finishes surprisingly dry. Meh. Borders on crappy, but I have nothing else to drink right now, so I guess Iíll find the bottom of the bottle...

16 oz. can. Pour (was into my mouth) was light yellow with minimal white head. Flavor is lightly malty and faintly hoppy. Itís pale lager. Really very drinkable, Iíd do it again for sure. Pretty thin on flavor and body.

This beer to me isnít very good. First off label is misleading. This is not a Hawaiian beer. Taste like a sweeter bud light to me. Overly carbonated. Overall not very good at all. On the plus side at least its affordable.

[Bottle] Pours a very light yellow color with a fizzy white head. Sweet nose of sugar cane and corn syrup. Smells a little oxidized too. The taste is grainy, with hints of metal and lingering sweetness. Champagne-like carbonation. Yikes! I only bought a bomber of this, but I really had to choke it down.

Bottled sample from Hawaii. Could tell by looking at it that this beer would have an inferior tinny taste. Was correct. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold pour with lots of bubbles and lasting white head. Aroma? Hmmm, it doesnít smell so good to be honest. Kind of an old soapy mop water with some cereal grains and funky hops. Flavor is corn, bubbles and old hops.

As long as Im rating the shittiest beer I can find in the dredges of my fridge, Ill submit this story to the Midnight Society: Imagine a beer with a floating head of a dead polynesian pedophile on its label and think to yourself "well it cant get much worse from here". I would rather be hit over the head with a bottle of this junk than have to have it mysteriously appear in my fridge. Please. Family, stop with the care packages. I can find good beer on my own.
