I originally sampled this beer on 23 November 2002. I am writing this review from my notes.
Appeance: this is a cloudy yellow lager with a white head
Flavor: There isn't much flavor to speak of
Aroma: This beer isn't aware of what this means.
Well, if your goal is to have beers from all 50 states, this one covers Hawaii.

12 oz. bottle poured into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a clear yellow color with hints of gold. Minimal white head leaves slight bits of lacing and becomes a thin film. Hardly any carbonation.

Smell: Generic malty aroma; maybe a bit of grasses and honey in there too.

Taste: Malty character with... I'm not sure what. Grassy, but sprayed with pesticide? It's a really atrocious flavor that permeates the aftertaste too.

Mouthfeel: A bit more viscous than most lagers of this calibre. Still light-bodied, but there's something almost syrupy to it. Little to no carbonation.

Drinkability: Undrinkable.

Maybe (hopefully?) I just got a bad batch of this, but it tastes terrible. And what is there isn't enough to make me bother trying it again in the future.

Pours almost clear with soda-like carbonation. Fizzy, light. More towards a mass produced adjunct than the promised handcrafted beer. Says on the label brewed in New Hampshire by Kona Brewery NH rather than HI. Three sips; drain pour. Life if too short to choke this down.
