Poured from a bottle into a tumbler glass.

A - Clear light yellow, with a one-finger white head which didn't last long. Only the faintest hints of lacing.

S - Mild aroma of dextrin, grass, and Pledge furniture polish. Doesn't smell appealing at all.

T - Things don't get much better here. Some corn sweetness and vague frutiness with a hint of floral hop. Slight salty mineral taste in the finish. Flavors are ridculously mild. Did someone put Michelob Ultra in my bottle?

M - Watery. Beyond watery. Water isnt this watery. Prickly carbonation.

O - Normally I like Kona and I understand this is meant to be a blonde ale, but it's still a big time fail. Just watery, bland, and generally terrible.

Not a fan of this one, there is an odd taste/mouthfeel that ruins it for me. It's hard to describe but I feel almost nauseas when I try to drink this. Couldn't even finish it.

This is a poor quality IPA rather than a golden ale. Tastes like a Coors Lite that has had Pine Sol added to it.
