Postmortem Brew Review
Light nearly clear golden color.
Malt grains and citrus aromas.
Foamy, tall white head with dissipating lacing.

Light mouth feel, plenty of malt flavor with slight hops and citrus sweet finish.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This is the other beer a good friend returned with from Hawai'i. Kaua'i Golden Ale was very interesting from the start. Although it mostly looked like any other 'yellow' beer, it had a touch of haze to it along with a sweet smell and aftertaste that was unlike anything else. You cannot judge this one on looks alone; it is deceptively good.

If you are able to surf out for one, good for you. If not, you'll have to wait like me for another wave of these to come ashore on the mainland.
