      Bright golden. Huge creamy head. Very mild herbal hop and sweet malt aroma. Light body, fairly fizzy. Lots of sweet malt flavor all the way through with almost but not quite enough bitterness to balance it.

      Pale golden, very high carbonation and large head. Fresh, malty, and sweet aroma. Malty-sweet flavor, very clean. Gentle Saaz bitter finish. Mighty tasty. Had some on tap at a bar in Kona last week.

      Score: 17 points
      Appearance (3)
      Very very pale, bright, almost like a cider. Big thick head.
      Aroma (2½)
      Sulfury, sweet, with a hint of skunk.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Very light body, moderate carbonation. Sweet grainy malt, with a surprisingly prominent noble hop flavor.
      Overall Impression (2½)
      With "only 87 calories", it's definitely a light beer, but it does — sort of — taste like beer, much more so than any American light beer does.
