The best I can come up with is "The Coors Banquet" of Hawaii. I drank a tall can of this on the deck of an overpriced store on the road to Haleakala. I was pleasantly surprised - this would be fine for quaffing on the beach, but don't expect much in terms of complexity.

Poured from the tap many years ago in Waikiki. This beer is your basic AAL straw yellow with a small white head. It has a weak beer aroma of malt but I found the flavor to be refreshing, Not a craft beer type flavor but a hot summer day session beer. I am not sure how the new brewery stateside makes it, but the Schlitz brewery had a nice flavor.

Never had the original brewed in Hawaii so I can't compare it to that, but it is an ok beer to drink on a hot day. It's more of a nostalgia beer to drink in Hawaii, but most people in Hawaii don't drink it. Made more for the tourist.

A rather good lager, sweet with little hop or complexity. A simple, easy drinking lager for chilling on the beech or mowing the lawn. I found it rather enjoyable- though I wouldn't seek it out
