Found this for the first time at the local this week, thought I’d give it a try. It came in a mixed 6 pack with 3 different brews. Pours a crystal clear pale golden color with a smallish white head that dissipates to a cap. Smells of grain and sweet fruits like green apples with a hint of skunk. Taste is sweet and grainy with a hint of hops in the finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body, sticky/watery mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, but nothing remarkable either. I could see downing a few of these on a warm day, would be very sessionable.

Somewhat hazy yellow, pineapple juice color. A bright white head that was small and didn’t have much retention or leave much lacing. A fresh smelling aroma of some grain and wheat. It smelled a bit citrusy, like lemon. Some spices floating around in there. Some medium ranges of malt. The breadiness and wheat comes through more as it warms. The flavor provided more of the wheat beer characteristics. The spices and the lemony citrus. The wheat is prevelant, but the grassy/grain flavors are a little more laid back. Some pepper comes through. Mild to low amounts of bitterness. The malt helps to keep it proportioned. Medium to light mouthfeel. Very crisp and refreshing and thirst quenching. Smooth and slightly watery. A little taste is left on the palate and on into the finish. This brew definitely could be enjoyed while basking in the sun. Very easy to drink. A person could definitely pound a few of these with ease. Nothing fancy however. Rather straight forward.

Ubiquitous on Oahu, but not standout in any way. This is more of the pale lager standard for the locals that want to support a local brewery without stepping too far away from Bud. Definitely nothing offensive here, but nothing particularity attractive either.

This was pretty lousy. Poured clear light yellow. Taste watery and unbalanced sweet.

On tap at Round Table Pizza in Honolulu, HI. Pours a clear, pale yellow colored body with a thin, foamy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened pale malts, some bready grain, and citrusy florals. Flavor is similar. Grainy, lightly sweetened pale malts, some bread, and a light grassy citrus. Dries with a light bitterness and leaves a short aftertaste. Light, crisp body and moderately fizzy carbonation. Overall, a decent, easy drinking lager. Nothing crazy, but enjoyable on tap throughout Hawaii.

Horrible mistake buying this brew. I should have asked for a sample first, or ordered a coors light. I had to question the server what she poured me. Fizzy yellow brew, with a white head. Aroma and taste...nothing distinguishable.

This tasted like a refined Budweiser product to me, but that’s just my personal opinion.

Bottle. Poured like a standard lager, medium dark yellow color, medium fluffy white head. Aroma was light hops, malts. Flavor was sweet pale malts, touch of hops. Pretty refreshing, though nothing new. Better beers from this brewery.

Really needed something refreshing tonight and saw this. Hopefully it is somewhat good. Pours with a bright 3 finger white head, and a light pale yellow. Good for the style. Semll is grainy, with some kisses of hops. Typical astingency of an American light lager. Taste is very malty and bready, with some metallic character, surprisingly heavier than expected but it is pretty light bodied despite that. Hops are there, they are very medicinal and earthy with a tiny pinch of pine. It just wasn’t refreshing enough to be something worth purchasing perhaps it is the sweetness or not enough carbonation. The hops are tasty but they cold be stronger and have this more pilsener-like. Overall is is better than a lot of American light lagers, but like most it "pales" in comparison to its European brethren.

Light malty aroma. Appearance was golden like a light lager should be. Taste was fairly malty. Sweetness and some fruitiness present. Palate was medium-. Not as dry as expected but still crisp. Overall I like this beer. Nice drinker and a quality American made lager.
