Yellow in color with a small white head. Malty smells with hints of fruit. Slight sweet taste. Nothing special (other than drinking it in Hawaii). Bar served it in an ice cold glass... slowrunner77 (13225) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"didn’t get too many of those aspects the brewer described above. a somewhat lacking amber blonde...not aroma-less, but less than par for the style. too much malt, not enough hops. shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle. Melon malt and pine hops aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Melon malt and strong pine hops flavor. Very hoppy - more like an APA. Nicely made and tasty. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Pours with an large white frothy head, deep gold clear color. Pepper and fruit in the aroma, not bad. Taste is dry and sweet, not bad, actually pretty decent. I likee it better than the average big island brew.

12 0z. bottle, white foamy head, average golden color with a bitter hop finish that was a little off. a grassy sweet flavor jgb9348 (6590) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Clearish copper coloured body with a honey glow and a soapy, two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, cardboard, some light sugars and not much else - very mild. Light-bodied; Sharp nutty flavour at first with some cardboard and a hint of toffee noticeable. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, a little bit of earth and mostly malt noticeable, but not much at all, very mild. Overall, a pretty substandard offering, but that was pretty much expected. Not really worth trying, unless you are from Hawai’i and can’t get great different beers very cheaply. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the Wine Corner in Pai’a, Maui, Hawai’i on 02-March-2010 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 31-January-2013.

Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of caramel and biscuits. Tastes sweet with some appley splashes and some toastiness on the finish. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2008

2008 – Hawaiian Beer Run
Aroma – Light pale malt with a slight hops aroma.
Appearance – Light Yellow in color, Nice head and clear as a bell.
Flavor – Lots of good 2 row malts and a slight hint of spice added to this beer.
Palate – Good Mouthfeel, with a dry finish.
Overall – A decent pale ale this was perfect for when we where really hot and needed a cold beer. Had some flavor and went down wonderful. A easy drinking beer for the masses.
