12 oz. bottle, with nearly indecipherable date of August 13, 2013 printed on the label. My first beer from Kona Brewing Co., and also my first beer from Hawaii! Expectations are about average based on this beer's current ratings.
Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.
A - Pours your typical light lager gold colored body with excellent clarity. About one finger's worth of "ecru" foam appears and then disappears. No lacing. About average for the style.
S - Smell is of corn, grains, dust, and a sweet pilsner malt smell. On point for the style, I'd say, without any pervasive spice to throw it off.
T - Crisp carbonation, grainy corn, light citric lemon bite, sweet sugary malt profile. I definitely wouldn't mind drinking this on a desert island, that's for sure.
M - Feel is crisp, tart, and light bodied. Clean smooth grainy finish.
Overall, this was about what I expected (and hoped) it would be. A light, sessionable, flavorful lager beer with a practical easy drinking 4.60% abv. A good first beer for me from Kona Brewing, and I look forward to trying the others.
