Blah...I appreciate the fact that my friend brought this back from Hawaii, but I can’t really think of much to say about it because it is just so boring.
The one interesting thing about the beer is the deep red color, it all goes down hill from there. Biscuity, "fat tire" flavor mixed with something cardboardy, a little metallic bite (I’d assume it’s from rye) and a bit of "generic hops."
I hate to waste beer, but I really can’t bring myself to finish this so I’m going to click "Add Rating" and pour this out. If I find another bottle I’ll try it again in case this was a bad bottle, but at this point I’m not overly impressed...
This beer tastes great. A red ale to enjoy. Goes great ont eh lanai of this ocean front villa. furthur (1193) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 9, 2017

Clear amber color with a mid-size foamy off-white head.
Dry berry hops, mild metal and dryish malt in the aroma.
The flavor is dry berry hops, metal, grainy malt and some milk chocolate notes. I have had worse.
Poured from a can. Brownish red. Off-white head that doesn't last too long. Very little lacing. Caramel malt aroma. Not much hops in the taste. Could use more. A little watery. OK.

Pours amber with a tan head. Butterscotch and sweet Hawaiian bread. Could use more hops for balance but I like it. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours a burnt amber color with an off white head. Caramel, biscuit, toast, toffee and floral aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Mild oxidation. Caramel and toast finish. Strykzone (7363) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2015
12 ounce can from Hayduke. Opaque orange brown with a big 4 finger beige head. Sticky lacing. This beer brings toffee, crackers, tart tropical fruit that is almost unripe, and fairly big sourness. smroush (281) - Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Light off-white head; medium amber color, with a slightly cloudy appearance.
Mildly sweet; slightly bready flavors; hops are also pretty subdued.
Pretty thin body; short finish , slightly sweet and bready.
Overall a pretty thin beer, though at least there is some balance between the malt and hops.
