2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2009 From a 12 oz bottle this poured a very clear gold with a big white head and good lacing. Nose of malts with some light floral hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is light malts with a light bitter finish. Refreshing to drink.

Pours a ginger ale colored body, no head. Aroma is yeast, banana and clove. Flavor is bitter and palate is crisp but metallic. An alright beer.

This beer has almost no aroma and a very light taste followed by a slightly bitter after taste. I did not know this was a Miller product when I purchased it. Not that it would change my opinion but I feel a little duped in that I thought I was buying a microbrew. Live and learn I guess.

Bottle. Slightly darker golden than most lagers, sweetish wooly head. Grassy, sweet, not much depth, but surprisingly drinkable. Kind of a distinct flavour which I’d probably get sick of, but as an end-of-week beer with my Japanese curry it hit the spot.

22oz bottle...OK, site and setting were everything (chugged it out of the bottle on the balcony of our room in Kauai over looking the sparkling blue Pacific). Enjoyed it thoroughly and was very satisfied with this not-really-from-Hawaii Hawaiian beer. Back in Michigan this undoubtedly would not fair so well...

Had the original (bottle, not draft) in Hawaii many, many years ago, tasted sweet, like Bud. Read the label, brewed in California, not that it means anything, but I wanted something exotic... not something brewed right near where I flew in from. Saw it on "Three Sheets" a couple of weeks ago and they said it was "all new" and brewed with "Island sugar." Grabbed a six here locally, tastes sweet, like Bud, still brewed in California, with the "Island sugar" shipped in, as the case with many other macro beers? Overall not a bad "Budsy" beer... Aloha and Cheers!

22 oz bomber from Capital Market, Salem.
was kinda tricked really into buying, thought this was brewed on HI. but its brewed in Millers plant in Cali.
Ok pretty average looking lager pale golden nice sized white head. Typical.
Aroma is pretty pleasant for style only a whiff of carboard to go with the buisuity malts.
Taste..pretty average semi-sweet American lager.
Mouthfeel is actually Ok they managed to at least keep the carbonation down this makes the overall expierience with the beer more pleasing.
This is an OK macro lager..not too many off flavours. reinds me of Henry Weinhards Private Reserve..thats a good thing.

Bottle in Hawaii. Hmmm... interesting. Tastes much better cold which is probably not a good sign I guess. Quite sweet as you would expect from the cane sugar. Let down by slighty chemical aftertaste.
