Negative props for authenticity, as this ones brewed in California with "island" sugar (the islands are not identified lest the current Honolulu government object) but pretty damn drinkable, and happily sugary sweet--good for the "island" heat

bottle on the beach. Made with sugar cane and you can detect this aspect in the flavor, giving it a sweet - wood like aspect, along with corn starch and water. Light in body, not much going on in the aroma. No offensive, off flavors here, so I can say it will do the job for a light lager on the beach.

Had original beer "Eh, brah, I got beer in my ear..", poured golden and formed huge white foamy head. Aroma of malted corn, light ocean water hops. Flavour much of the same, ends sweet, yet quaffably fresh. Too much will give you a tremendous headache. About $3.99 a sixer, as I recall.

Primo is BACK! I had this in Maui over Thanksgiving 2008. Pale yellow pour with white head that fades quickly. A nice nose that’s sweet and pleasant. Little hops/barley. Very smooth. A great thirst quencher. This stuff really hits that spot on the back of your throat. For such an otherwise mild, unassuming brew, this is very nice.

Bottle from Honolulu. Pale yellow/gold, small white head, bready malt, cornflakes, low grassy bitterness, sweet finish. Nothing special.

A yellow beer with a small fading head. The aroma is corny and offensive as is the taste. I was offended when I drank this beer and was even more offended when I found out who brews it when I got back home from Hawaii.

This looked pretty good, esp. for a lager. Optimistic that a this was a Pabst sugar-cane lager. Horrible. I cant be certain that the palate was a 1 as it was hard to get over the bad taste. Got it at an island grocery so figured it was somewhat fresh. Refreshing on a beach...blah blah...drink some water to hydrate yourself if you are thirsty and then get a good beer and watch the sunset.
