Beer List

      Package: bottled
      Place: Kamuela Liquor Store, Kamuela HI
      Score: 12½ points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Golden-amber, very low head and carbonation. Fairly citrusy aroma, not as much as the Whistle Stop (19-1555). Good body but not very malty...hops dominate. Lots of hop flavor and a bitter-to-metallic finish.
