3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Hawai’i Admission Day tasting. Pours light straw gold with small white head. The aroma is kind of funky and straw-like with a slight isopropyl note. The flavor is very mild maltiness with an odd spicy yeast background. Planty hop finish. Not bad.

Pretty nice brew. Was a bit taken back by the aroma, had a grassy kinda pale ale aroma to it. Taste was good though. Nice chewy body, Bit of a pine/ citrus fruit in the taste with a hint of spice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. Aroma is a mix of lightly citrusy hops, some golden caramel, and a little toasted malt. Nicely hoppy with some citrusy notes, on the lighter side as far as the malt goes, some light ale fruitiness. Pretty drinkable with a nice lingering bitterness. Lighter bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation and a bit of a snap to the finish. Decent beer, think I’d stick with Anchor though as far as the style goes.
