Solid beer from Kona. When it comes to tropical beers, I would put Kona as a cut above the rest. Good ale, clean taste. Certainly not Corona!

The aroma is of candy, floral, fruit. The appearance is a clear gold with a very thin white head (gone in a few seconds). The taste was a bit off, a little bit of nothing kind of like a major light beer or something. Easy to drink but overall a bit disappointed.

Uit een flesje (leuker van vorm dan de afbeelding hier, ronder). Geel, wit schuim, pilsje met een lekkere bitterheid, niet verkeerd.

Das Kona Big Wave Golden Ale aus Hawaii, USA. Flaschenform und Etikett finde ich sehr gut. Gelblich Orange, leicht trüb im Glas mit kleiner kurzlebiger Schaumkrone. Fruchtig frischer Antrunk, sehr schmaler Körper mit Fruchtnoten von Zitrone, Mango und Grapefruit. Es wirkt wässrig, die Hopfennoten (Galaxy und Citra) im Abgang sind nur leicht spürbar (21 IBU). Süffiges leichtes Sommergetränk, hier kommt man in Urlaubsstimmung.

SamTheBarrel (847) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2017
355ml brown bottle poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is hazy pale golden with a small frothy beige head head. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, dried apricots and a hint of caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, watery texture and average carbonation. A decent thrist quencing refreshing beer.

theswiftsa (124) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2017
Can, pours cloudy golden with a white head. Nose is very sweet, caramel malts. Taste is upfront very cloying and sweet, with a strange slightly tart finish. Medium to low carbonation and thick mouthfeel. Too cloying for me.

ANZUShophunter (653) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2017
From can in Belgian ale glass. Pours clear deep golden orange with wispy white head and hoppy aroma: grassy, earthy, fruity. Tasty caramel from the malt with modest bitter finish. Easy drinking summer ale
