fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Draught at Kona Brewing Company - KoKo Marina Pub, 5.4% ABV
Deep blond color, with generous compact head, leaving a sticky lace. The aroma is perfumy, hoppy, fresh, with delicate fruitiness. The mouthfeel is drier than expected, the flavor is rather anonymous, with some dry malt, and hints of good hops; ordinary bitterness, into a very dry final.
Promising aroma, disappointing flavor.

Leighton (19177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle at home in London - courtesy of the fine folks at BeerMerchants. Pours totally clear gold with a frothy white head that quickly settles down into a cream. Fairly subdued on the nose, just some notes of biscuits, hay, light cereal, lemon rind. Light sweet flavor with simple pale malt structure, some more biscuits, dry white bread, mild citrusy hops, slight grain, lemon pith, straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Basic on the finish, more crispy cereal, pale grain, dried citrus, rind, hay. Not much to this beer, but I could see myself sipping it on the big island.
