Amber in color with an off-white head. Nose is grassy and lightly floral. Some sweet bread, grain, and apple esters. A bit of citrus peel, maybe some yeast. The flavor is sort of bland and a bit watery. Some bread and grain notes, light toast, and fruity esters. There’s a mild citrus note, some floral hops, and a fair amount of grassy bitterness.
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
Aroma is apricot and grain.
Taste is an apricot sweet throughout but balanced with a bit of pine bitter.
Texture is softer.
Nice. weitz15 (581) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Dry, grainy flavor with a hint of hops. The malted finish makes this stand out over other pale ales that feature actual citrus. jinroh (1524) - ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2017
Pours amber, relatively clear and not very foamy. Aroma biscuity and with some caramel character. Tastes sweetish, bit of sugary fruits there as well, besides loads of more caramel. Quite quick finish, just slight burnt sugar floating around in the linger. Overall, simple non pretentious pale ale, drinkable - yes, interesting - no.

Can from Liquor Mountain., Rather stale nose of caramel, light mineral and citrus hops. Hazy orange-amber with lace. Mineral, spicy hop, caramel, medium malt. A rather plain, boring pale ale but inoffensive. TimE (5789) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 10, 2016
Not sure what it looks like but so estry and so sweet and cloying, what it looks like is pretty much irrelevant. Full body. A mess.

12 oz can. BB 2016/06/08. (Whole Foods) Honolulu, HI.willisread (3293) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Slightly cloudy golden color with a small white head.
Sweet fruity hops, no bitterness and sweet malt in the aroma.
The flavor is dull hoppiness, mild bitterness, wet cardboard and malt.
Boring... unlike the mixture of SoCal Spanish and HI Pidgin English.
Can from Natural Lawson. Aroma of old ale yeast, some fruit and caramel. Very sweet with a slight bit of staleness on the palate. Very malt-forward with a large amount of fruity ale-like yeast on the palate. Light and kinda weird. Not good. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Purchased at some random grocery store in Honolulu, HI; enjoyed on my last day of vacation which kind of bums me out. Appearance is a cloudy darkish gold with a moderate white head. Aroma is not very good, mostly bready malt, smells like a mass produced lager. Taste is also not very good, not many flavors that I can pick out and it tastes like a generic beer. Not a fan.

June 22nd, 2013 - I was excited to see a new Hawaiian beer that wasn’t from Maui Brewing, but it’s all in the label and not in the origin. I’m not sure what the purpose here was, but this is mainlander brew, and not an especially enticing one at that. It’s a simple, plain brew with a little hops and a touch of amber style flavor, but mostly metallic and not entirely appealing. George999 (455) - Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Aroma is beer, drank straight from can, taste is smooth, not Sharp, like anAmber beer, but as you continue to drink it gets a metallic flavor
