12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. A clear, golden appearance with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma of sweet citrus, bread dough, and sweet malt.

Taste is clean, smooth, a bit sweet, and some grassy notes in the malt come to mind up front. Finish is smooth with a some hop bitterness.

Overall, not a bad American lager. Very light bodied, but packs enough flavor to be worth a try.

A weak beer. Kona Brewing Co. is skimping on the malt. I will never buy another Kona brew again for the price they charge. Weak all the way around and through. A limp ass beer. Their IPA's are terrible. Nothing good to say about it. I'd rate it with bud lite and we all know how that tastes.
