12 oz bottle, Dated Dec 09 11.
I poured this Hawaiian lager into a pint glass and got about a half finger of loose, not so dense, egg shell head. The body of the beer is a standard pale amber with good clarity and plenty of carbonation. Not much lacing, but you can tell it's trying.
Subdued, not terribly unique smell of lemon and malted, bready cereal grains. Lightly hopped, grassy.
The taste is better than expected. It has a pleasing sweetness to it which is nicely complimented by a crisp, dry finish. Hints of orange zest or even mango flesh ride smoothly over a slightly overpowered malt background. Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel fits the style well.
I wouldn't mind having another of these, actually. Kona does a nice job.
