UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 Faint sugar bouquet. Much more deep golden than any other lager Ive had. Its very easy to drink and matter of fact way too easy. Im guessing that its 4-4.5% alcohol. This is the perfect beach beer. Screw Corona this is what I want when on the beach or anywhere in the Sun. It is a bit sweeter than the typical lager.

Wortth a try, a bit sweet with unfamiliar aromas of mash and grass, not exactly pleasant. Drinkable but not really worth the $7.99 price. Brewed in CA with a Hawaiian brand.

Sample at Burger Bar in Las Vegas. The beer is a clear golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that diminishes quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Light hops and pale malt in the nose. Light, carbonated body with grainy malt and mild hops flavors. Touches of fruit at times as well. The finish is lightly bitter with a short hops aftertaste. By-the-numbers Lager overall.

Primo beer is still around? I remember seeing this beer from the Schlitz’s Hawaii brewery back in the late 1970s before I could legally drink the stuff. From 12-oz bottle pours a clear golden pale colored brew with an average size white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring and film top. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of vanilla, sugar, corn, and a hint of floral hops. Taste is light bodied, some metallic texture with flavors of multi-grain malt with corn, a hint of honey and floral hops. Finish is a touch watery, semi-sweet with floral hop and corn aftertaste. Can’t detect any sugar in taste but only in aroma. It’s a lot better than the the Schlitz historical 1970s vintage brew but it’s still an average macro-style grain beverage with the marketing hype.

zapach lekki, dość przyjemny - zioła z chmielu i lekkie mleko/śmietanka. kolor złoty, przejrzysty, piana mierna. w smaku pełne, bardzo karmelowe, lekko palone. da się wyczuć posmak śmietany co ciekawie łączy się ze słodyczą i karmelowością. goryczka niska, ale dość przyjemna. trochę zbyt nasycone

Golden draft pour at tikis in Honolulu. White head. A decent chuggable and kind of sweet lager. It was served freezing and that was great

Pours pale yellow with a bobbly white head. Corn and some bready malt in the nose and flavor. Quite bland.
