What is Kona Light?
As the name suggests, Kona Light is a light beer with a golden hue. It is smooth, easy drinking and packed with interesting flavours, whilst also being lower in calories and carbs. It is made by Kona Brewing Co. based in exotic Hawaii. The company was founded in 1994 by a father and son team who had a vision to reflect the spirit, culture, and beauty of Hawaii in a collection of local island craft beers. Flash forward to today, and Kona Brewing has become one of the best-selling craft beer brands in the world.
Throughout their growth and success, Kona Brewing Co. has maintained a deep commitment to progressive environmentalism since day one. For example, at their Big Island brew pub, they transform spent grain from the brewery into homemade pizza crust, and use air-conditioner run off to water their vegetable gardens. Not only this, but they also plan to install a state of the art solar-plus-battery storage system capable of harnessing Hawaii’s powerful sun to provide 25% of their power needs. It’s hard not to love a company with an environmental conscience!
As you can probably tell, we are big fans of Kona Light here at DrinkWell, and we know you won’t be disappointed with the refreshing taste of island life this light beer has to offer. Kona Brewing Co. claim that there is no better way to spend a day well lived than by enjoying a Kona Light with family and friends, and we definitely can’t argue with them on that one.
Even if you can’t get abroad this year, with Kona Light you can bring a bit of Hawaiin sunshine to your own home. With the prospect of a more sociable summer on the horizon, why not order yourself some Kona Light from DrinkWell to enjoy with your friends and see for yourself what all the fuss is about! You can purchase a case of 12 x 355ml bottles of Kona Light lower calorie beer from the Drink Well website for £29.99. One last thing to mention that we love about this beer - the bottles are 10% bigger than the other beers we have on offer!
How does Kona Light taste?
From a bottle of Kona Light you can expect a crisp tropical flavour that captures the golden moment of island life in every sip, owing to its composition of Millennium, Mosaic and Amarillo hops. The inclusion of real mango fruit gives Kona Light its juicy exotic flavour, very much in keeping with the sandy shores of its birthplace, Hawaii. Kona Light scores an 18 on the International Bitterness Scale, and malts include pale malt and caramel malt. Kona Light Blonde Ale pairs well with lighter fare including grilled fish, shrimp, and salad.
How many calories are in Kona Light?
The Kona Light is the ideal choice for those watching their waistlines. In one 4.2% ABV bottle you will find just 99 calories and 3.15g of carbs, which any beer fan knows is astonishingly low. For a bit of perspective, a serving of the same size of Brewdog Trashy Blonde would provide you with 132 calories and 12.5g of carbs - that's a significant difference. In addition to this, Kona Light has 0g of sugar, is gluten free and is suitable for a vegan diet. We don’t think you can go far wrong with this lower calorie light beer!Buy Kona Light Now
