3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another brew enjoyed while vacationing in Maui, Hawaii. When I saw this on the cooler shelf I knew I had to try it for two basic reasons; (1) it was the last one on the shelf, and (2) I have never tried it before and have never seen it in my area! This brew had a fantastic flavor that was making me take it nice and slow so that I could enjoy it for as long as I could! This brew is made with pure Hawaiian cane sugar and that makes for one fantastic tasting brew! This is truly wonderful as the company for this brew falls under the Pabst/Miller corporate structure and they have graciously kept from meddling around and mucking up the production of this tasty brew!

Bottle. Cane sugar and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Sweet light berry, barley malt and moderate hops flavor. Recently resurrected - had quite a cult following before it died out in the 90s.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Shaker pint draft at the Pineapple Grill at Kapalua golf course on Maui. The pour is clear golden, with not too much of a white head. The aroma is sweet honey malt, a bit of grassiness and not much else. The taste is sweet sugar malt, along with an unclean yeast, grassy dry finish. The palate is light to medium bodied, high level of carbonation and the sweet finish. This was easy enough to drink.

Bottle from Yamaya. Aroma of grass and some lemon. Clear pale straw color, lots of carb rising. Grass, good hopping / mid gets a bit sweet / flattens into a thick, dull sweetness, along with a metallic note. Thin-medium body, some big-time fizz. Full-bodied and fairly flavorful for a light lager. Better than I thought it would be.

Taste from Big Braddah can brought back to mainland by Otto. If rated just as a lager, the score would not be as high. I am rating this more as an experimental beer. For a beer designed to show off "Pure Island Cane," it does so well. It is definitely sweet, but finishes surprisingly clean with all the sugar.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Bottle on the beach. Pours clear golden with a decent bubbly white head. Nose is mostly malt, heavy on the molasses, with a little hoppy spice. Full mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly caramel malt that turns into a weird oniony taste in the finish. Overall, not too bad.
