Had the chance to visit the brewery on the big island a couple years ago and loved their selection of beers! Two good things came of this discovery, one being that the whole island serves it so i was able to indulge with most meals and two being now that I know about Kona Brew Im able to spot it out in stores, purchase it, and share it with friends who havent been to hawaii...yet!

KevinReddirt (72) - Midland, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Served from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Golden Ale does well in that, a decent yellow-gold and a fine-ish off-white top replenished by strong carbonation. It has little smell, grain and tropical fruit. The taste is a slight buzz of hops with pineapple and lemon. Mouth feel is full surprisingly for such a light brew. Definitely an all day beer if you want because of the low abv.

Andrew196 (1623) - Katy, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Pours a clear yellow, thin wispy head. Some is very subdued, celery, lightly toasted malt. Watery and wimpy... Nothing offensive, light breadiness, corn. Pretty weak.

sm89walt (1992) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2016
Keg. Pale golden amber in colour with a small, somewhat lasting white head leaving a patchy lace. Aromas of biscuity pale malts, citrus, and near-tropical hops. Mid-weight, medium carbonation and a moderate length and intensity hop bitterness to finish. A relatively straightforward golden - clean, crisp ad refreshing enough with just enough character to make it good for a session.
