2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A pretty standard pale lager. When fresh from an ice bath it is quite refreshing and void of most flavor. A hint of hop bitterness rounded out with light malt sweetness. As it warms on the beach it gets quite off-putting. Nothing to see here, move along.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the tap many years ago in Waikiki. This beer is your basic AAL straw yellow with a small white head. It has a weak beer aroma of malt but I found the flavor to be refreshing, Not a craft beer type flavor but a hot summer day session beer. I am not sure how the new brewery stateside makes it, but the Schlitz brewery had a nice flavor.

Golden draft pour at tikis in Honolulu. White head. A decent chuggable and kind of sweet lager. It was served freezing and that was great

Bottle from Food Pantry Waikiki 191214. This is some nasty ass beer right here. Pale and pasty with no aroma or flavour. Label says brewed since 1897, sure tastes like it.

"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."

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
zapach lekki, dość przyjemny - zioła z chmielu i lekkie mleko/śmietanka. kolor złoty, przejrzysty, piana mierna. w smaku pełne, bardzo karmelowe, lekko palone. da się wyczuć posmak śmietany co ciekawie łączy się ze słodyczą i karmelowością. goryczka niska, ale dość przyjemna. trochę zbyt nasycone
