I recently discovered a brew that I REALLY like, it's the Pacific Golden Ale from the Kona Brewing company of Kona, HI. I was able to purchase one case from a distributer in Costa Mesa CA who now tells me they can't get any more. The Kona Brewery sheet describes the ale as follows:
"Pale gold in color PGA (Pacific Golden Ale) is the perfect introduction to Kona
is a light to medium bodied ale with a delicate hop aroma and subtle fruity
Bittering Units (BU) = 20
Alcohol by volume = 5%"
The taste, to my wife, was "yeasty" but with my messed up tastes I couldn't say
trust her judgment.
Since I apparently can't get this nectar east of the Faralons (islands west of
Francisco) I have to find a local brew that's similar. I live in the San
area, can somebody suggest a local brew that might come close?
