Pale yellow with little head that vanishes completely soon enough. Very light aroma. I guess if I just mowed the lawn and downed one, I mean 1 3/4 of these instantaneously it would be awesome, but I don’t mow anymore. Maybe I should start again....................

piscator34 (2493) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
Draft. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Fairly neutral aromas of wet grain and mild grassy hops. Grainy and oddly heavy malt flavor with a long mineral finish. Bland, and not terribly refreshing in spite of a light body.

Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI. Clear straw color with a small white head. Mild hops, mild bitterness, papery dryness and grainy maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is dry hops, mild fruitiness, papery dryness and malt. Very easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a draft pour at the brewpub in Kailua Kona, Hawaii Came in the glass a clear gold with a white head. Nose is light citrus and floral hops. Light in body. Flavor is citrus and there is nothing in the finish. Very bland. this brewery makes some very nice beers. This is not one of them.

Taste comprises light vanilla, citric zing, light bread dough, straw, trace of caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp clean close.
