Kona Brewing and their 808 series beer the Lemongrass Luau - I like it. It wasn't overly impressive out of the bottle (gosh, lately none of the beers I've been trying wow me out of the bottle). Anyway, it has a weak head and no lacing, but it was still halfway decent. Feel-wise I liked the crisp and full flavor rolling around the tongue. The smell was there with the lemongrass, but ginger - which is a powerful scent - I didn't really detect. The taste of the beer was good though, very refreshing - sessionable if you're inclined to this sort of beer. A very nice job by Kona.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has some hints of ginger, not much else. Taste is mild, ginger, some lemon, not bad but nothing special. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Not to my taste at all. At least it's beer, and it's not XXXXX Light.

Pours a semi-cloudy golden with a thick head of white bubbles. Lovely tree-line lace.

Aroma is ginger with some citrus underneath. Very pleasant and refreshing, really.

Taste is quite unusual and unique, with the ginger being up front and foremost, but with a well-integrated touch of the lemongrass and citrus. I enjoyed this one as a tasty take on ginger beer.
