355 ml can poured into a flute. This one is a nice golden yellow with a rich creamy white head that retains its form well. Aroma of hay/grass, dry cracker-like malts, and maybe just hints of orchard fruit and green peppercorns. Taste reveals why this won a World Beer Cup award in 2006. At once bready but not particularly sweet, assertive noble hops, and again just hints of citrus and stone fruit, this is a solid Helles lager. Features a very soft but flavorsome cereal malt character and hoppier than usual for the style. Moderate body with some dextrins apparent, vaguely chalky, and just the right level of carbonation, on the far side of moderate. Finishes dry and grassy with a little white pepper and grape. Nil huskiness or other off-flavors. I regret that I have only one can in my possession.

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'.
