3.55/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from can to pilsner glass.

A - The beer pours a pale hazy straw blonde color with a small 1/2 finger bubbly white head. Some retention and lacing.

S - Malt forward on the nose. Slight yeast character but aroma is fairly clean and crisp.

T/M - The beer starts and finishes very smooth and slightly creamy, which is nice. The malt found on the nose provides a medium sweetness upon which the mild bitterness and slight fruity banana and apple flavors build. A mild biscuity flavor through the middle and end. The beer finishes smooth and creamy with a linger bread malt sweetness.

O - Pretty easy to put a few of these back. A little malty and lacks the crispness I'd expect but the smooth creaminess was nice.

Bikini Blonde Lager
12 oz. can
Served in an 8 oz hotel glass

I picked up a 6 pack of this beer on Monday (03/17/14) after a late morning stop at the State of Hawaii, Department of Health office. I was anticipating a return to Waikiki Beach and was in search of a local 6 pack to clandestinely drink on the beach. I decided to get a 6 pack of Bikini Blonde Lager cans...

Pours a straw yellow with mini bubbles that race to the top of the glass. A circular bleach white head forms on top.

Aroma is very clean with whiffs of freshly cut grass and herbs.

The first sip is super crisp, clean and drinkable. I am immediately interested in the carbonation level that feels greater than normal. Flavors of toasted malt (think cereal) and a light fruit twang that is reminiscent of pear or a freshly cut Granny Smith apple slice. There is a mini hop snap on the finish that brings everything together.

A nicely crafted beer, true to the style with an above average drinkability level. A beer that truly 'hit the spot'.
