Too sweet, slightly skunky. I’m drinking one now that sat in the fridge until I ran out of everything else. You know, it’s bad enough that Foster’s ("Australian for beer") is really made in Canada. But here we have a so-called "Island Lager" with a Hawaiian-sounding brewery name (Kona Brewing Co.), people on the label surfing, and so on. But it’s actually made in freaking New Hampshire. Is there a lot of surfing in New Hampshire? Is New Hampshire an island? The beer is almost as bad as their marketing strategy.

Bottle. Clear pale golden colour with a medium foamy white head, nose is grassy and grainy with some tart notes, taste is also sweet and grainy with a medium dry finish and a bit watery palate.

Rex_Remes (283) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2018
(12oz bottle) AROMA: soft malt, light dough/biscuit, touch of dairy/cheese APPEARANCE: straw yellow, touch of haze, thin head, bit oily appearance, minimal visible carbonation TASTE: light/medium malt, some sweet corn bit also some scratchy grain, toasted rye, ok hops for a lager PALATE: medium/light body, good balance, not too astringent, nice smoothness and creaminess OVERALL: a very good pale lager, a little flat looking and not overly complex, but respectable nose and nice balanced grainy and hop flavor.

The aroma was almost non existent, maybe some faint stale gym sock. The appearance is a clear pale gold with a thin white head. Taste was a bit on the bland side as well with nothing to write home about. Easy to drink, but again an overall disappointment.

Best lager tasted for a while. Appearance light and bright in glass with plenty of carbonation. Light hop malt and yeast profile. Crisp smooth mild and very easy to drink.

Das Kona Longboard Island Lager aus Hawaii, USA. Sehr schicke Flaschenforn, Etikett vermittelt Urlaubsfeeling. Goldgelb im Glas, Minikrone. Sehr weicher Antrunk, feiner Malzkörper und feine Hopfennoten im Abgang. Vier Hopfensorten werden verwendet (Hood, Hallertau, Sterling, Millennium). Leichtes fruchtiges Erfrischungsgetränk, mild und bekömmlich, schmeckt warscheinlich am Strand am Besten.

Pintare (4) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 14, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 una eccezionale lager poco impegnativa, beverina e floreale adatta a qualsiasi momento dall'aperitivo alla birra dopo cena per far due chiacchiere

This is a beer to have very, very cold. It goes down smooth and is refreshing. But, as it warms up in the glass, there is a faint unpleasant funky aroma. The taste is still okay, but the nose gets worse as the temperature rises. For that reason I rate it fairly low. However, if you are going to chug it while it is freezing cold, it is EXCELLENT.
