Drank it at Kip's in Berkeley. The bartender had to work on this one for a while. Lots of foam and more foam out of the tap. Must have been the lines and how they were set up because the Boont Amber had the same problem. Fortunately, he left some head on it instead of pouring it all out.

Lighter than straw yellow color, not much smell, just a beery smell, but little of that. The taste is bitter but not too dry. It didn't taste bad but the only thing I was pulling out of it was a fairly bitter hopped beer without a lot of body. I might try another brew from Kona but the lager wasn't anything more than a slightly better than average beer.

12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. A clear, golden appearance with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma of sweet citrus, bread dough, and sweet malt.

Taste is clean, smooth, a bit sweet, and some grassy notes in the malt come to mind up front. Finish is smooth with a some hop bitterness.

Overall, not a bad American lager. Very light bodied, but packs enough flavor to be worth a try.

A weak beer. Kona Brewing Co. is skimping on the malt. I will never buy another Kona brew again for the price they charge. Weak all the way around and through. A limp ass beer. Their IPA's are terrible. Nothing good to say about it. I'd rate it with bud lite and we all know how that tastes.
