3.5/5 rDev +3.9%
When i poured this one, it has a clear golden body with a very small fizzy head that dissapears quickly. The smell is light of malt and a slight hint of hops and apple. The taste is mellow of malts with undertones of hop. The mouth feel is easy,smooth and very drinkable. Overall my taste buds got kinda bored with it, wanted something more, but this would be a good beer to drink on a hot day.

3.15/5 rDev -6.5%
April 16th 2012 bottle date.
Bright and crystal clear golden straw color with plenty of streams of bubbles rose throughout the beer. Left about one finger of head that disappeared almost immediately and left behind no lacing.
Some bready malts and light apple. A generic hop lies underneath.
Incredibly light flavor with the mild taste of apples. A floral hop rides beneath the predominantly malty taste. Kind of "Meh" tasting.
Almost too light in body and there wasn't too much substance other than the carbonation. It was an incredibly easy beer to drink.
It was very clean tasting, but there weren't enough flavors to keep my attention. It was a little disappointing in a way. I might have this again in the future, but I'm not going to try and seek it out.

Bottle purchased from ABC store in Honolulu.
Appearance- Pours a pale straw gold with a finger width of foamy white head.
Smell- Sweet apples, malts, grassy notes.
Taste- Same as smell. Grassiness is present upfront. Finishes bready. Simplistic flavours.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and dry finish.
Overall- A refreshing lager by Kona Brewing. Perfect after a beach day. Simple crisp and refreshing qualities.

A = Very light colored with a good head and decent lacing.
S = Smells like a typical light lager.
T = Very light tasting. Didn't notice anything special.
M = Light bodied.
O = I was excited when I picked up this beer and it looks nice in the glass, but overall, I have to give it a "meh". A very light beer that might be good when doing yard work on a hot summer day, but kind of disappointing.
