Had a draft of this at Duke's Waikiki with dinner.

I might have been happier with this if I hadn't had a Deschutes Chainbreaker before it. It had practically no aroma that I could detect. To be honest, it looked to me like Bud Lite, and it might as well have been.

On tap at Leilani's in Lahaina, HI.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet malt and slight fruity flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is refreshing and easy to drink in the Hawaii heat.
