Fresh and juicy, grainy brew. Lots of caramel; toasty grains throughout, balanced with a decent (but restrained) dose of hops. Nice finish. A very tasty brew in an under-appreciated style.

The color is dark amber and clear. Small head that settles to a fine layer of light beige bubbles. One initial ring of lace, spots thereafter.

Interesting blend of raw grain and toasted malt. Light hop in the background.

The taste starts with a darker flavor than the smell lets on. The hop is more biting than the smell as well. Highly carbonated but with a decent body. Aftertaste is like a darker white toast with a peppery hop finish.

Overall, this is a good, well-balanced, characterful amber ale and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was given that it is Waikiki and the whole area is very touristy. It had a nice, firm toasty-caramelly maltiness and mild sweetness balanced with earthy-woody firm but restrained hop. It was great alone or with food.
