snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Bottle on the beach. Pours clear golden with a decent bubbly white head. Nose is mostly malt, heavy on the molasses, with a little hoppy spice. Full mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly caramel malt that turns into a weird oniony taste in the finish. Overall, not too bad.

hayduke (5138) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2009 From a 12 oz bottle this poured a very clear gold with a big white head and good lacing. Nose of malts with some light floral hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is light malts with a light bitter finish. Refreshing to drink.

kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Pours a ginger ale colored body, no head. Aroma is yeast, banana and clove. Flavor is bitter and palate is crisp but metallic. An alright beer.

This beer has almost no aroma and a very light taste followed by a slightly bitter after taste. I did not know this was a Miller product when I purchased it. Not that it would change my opinion but I feel a little duped in that I thought I was buying a microbrew. Live and learn I guess.

Westkyoto77 (634) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. Slightly darker golden than most lagers, sweetish wooly head. Grassy, sweet, not much depth, but surprisingly drinkable. Kind of a distinct flavour which Id probably get sick of, but as an end-of-week beer with my Japanese curry it hit the spot.

22oz bottle...OK, site and setting were everything (chugged it out of the bottle on the balcony of our room in Kauai over looking the sparkling blue Pacific). Enjoyed it thoroughly and was very satisfied with this not-really-from-Hawaii Hawaiian beer. Back in Michigan this undoubtedly would not fair so well...

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 13, 2011
A: The beer pours a pale yellow color with a short lived white head and no lacing. S: Lots of corn sweetness and sugar sweetness, too. A bit of straw and apple juice (which gives even more sweetness). Just a light ester quality. A slightly stale feeling to the aroma. T: Slightly bitter on the back of the throat, but otherwise its just as sweet as the smell. A light grass and straw flavor as well. Corn and white sugar with some light grainy flavors. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Sort of falls in line with any of the other number of blah lagers.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4971) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 24, 2014
On sale at Liquor Mountain for just 138 yen, they also had Anchors Humming Ale for 148 yen. It pours like a typical macro-lager, gold with a fizzy white head. It looks fine. The aroma grains, grass & some biscuit. Medium-bodied the carbonation gives it a slightly rough mouthfeel. The taste isnt so bad, not syrupy sweet like most macros I really get that cane sugar/brown sugar taste, some light malts and a dash of bitterness at the finish alas I get some wet cardboard too which is a bummer. Ok for a macro.

Pabst does it again. Damn, Captain Joseph would be proud. This tastes delicious on Wailea beach, more than we expected it to.
