Smells of burned popcorn kernels and cow shit. Clear yellow, no head. Rice water with a lemon twist. Rarefied and gross. Grassy finish. A good slogan for this beer would be "Nothing ventured, nothing gained", which applies equally well to both brewer and buyer. Gross! Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Very clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is the same with a light hop bitterness at the end. Ease to drink, light body, great for a hot day. gpekar (497) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Poured a crystal clear dark yellow with a nice bright white head. There was a mild citrus aroma and some makt earthiness too. There was good carbonation and a good amount of carbonation bubbles rising in the glass. The taste was crisp & clean with a light lemony citrus flavor, slightly dry. There was a small hint of a hop bit towards the finish, but very faint. The head left a light amount of lacing. This beer was easy drinking and refreshing.

Bottled on April 21, 2009. Pours a very bright yellow with a good head. The aroma is white corn and hay, but pretty clean. Low levels of Eruopean hops are apparent. The palate is light, not too light, just right for a yellow lager. This is crisp and clean with no sour or bad vegetation in the flavor. This is refreshing and palatable. It’s good for those rare occassions I want one light lager.
yellow pour and slight head. honey and grain in the head. no hop or malt presence to speak of.. taste is a bit bland, some honey presence. not very remarkable. an average lager

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold, with a touch of cloudiness. Even with an aggressive pour, I was unable to get any sort of head to form.
Aroma: Sweet summer corn, dry malts, and a little bit of bitter hop.
Taste: Honey sweetness, light, dry buscuity malt, bitter, metallic hops, with a fruity, light hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, crisp.
Overall: Probably one of the first craft lagers I have ever had. Has a unique flavor compared to other pale lagers, very refreshing and satisfying. VertBaconStrips (2389) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAY 26, 2009
Easy easy drinking. almost zero head poured, but tons of tiny happy bubbles kept a-commin. A lightly fizzy dirty straw colour with that was slightly hopped - nice quiet bitterness and prominent sweet cirtusy flavour and somewhat creamy. Not a lot in the aroma category and i had a hard time nailing down that part of it. Once again, I’d never say no to Kona Brews cause they go down really fine. weezfour (124) - Oradell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2009
On tap at Dog Tooth bar and grill in Seaside Heights, NJ. 2 Bucks!! Can’t go wrong there. Was surprised to see a Kona on the mainland outside of HI. Much less NJ. Def a decent, easy-drinking summer beer. Recommended. jonno (2761) - JAPAN - MAY 24, 2009
Smooth and competent. Easy to knock back. Like an agreeable macro lager, with more quality ingredients ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours golden with a small white head...aroma is grain, honey, and only a slight lager skunk...flavour is grainy and rich, slight bitterness and grass...there is an off-putting canned corn presence throughout and lingers a bit, but that was the only real dislike I had...
