Poured from a 12oz can into a 20oz imperial pint. Thanks to Bernie and Linda for bringing this back from Hawaii!

A: Slightly hazy light straw color. A vigorous pour yields a small white head that recedes quickly and leaves virtually no lace. Very still. Only just a couple of lazy streams of bubbles climbing the sides of the glass.

S: Restrained citrus smelling hops and toasted malt mingle with an excellent, mildly tart, sour graininess. As it comes up to temp the hops take on a decidedly grassy aroma.

T: As noted above citrusy/grassy hops and toasted malt dominate the flavor. Very nice interplay between the citrus hops and toasted malt in the finish.

M: Creamy and dry/bitter but without a hint of lager "brightness". Feels much bigger than the abv would suggest.

D: This is an excellent lager. Satisfying and tasty and actually quite interesting to the palate. I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised.

Maui Brewing Co.'s Bikini Blonde Lager is a enjoyable beverage. It pours from the can a nice golden color. The head is frothy, white, and large. The smell is a mixture of citrus, grass, yeast, and malts, with none being overwhelming. The taste is nicely balanced between sweetness and bitter, neither one over-riding the other. The finish is dry and crisp. A very refreshing beer. Enjoy!

Pours a two finger frothy light clingy head over a cloudy pineapple yellow liquid. Smells musky noble hops over clean pils malt.

Tastes light malt sweet with lemony zing. Some musky hops, like tettnanger. Wet finish with some carbonation acrid placing a sour counterpoint. Nice hop flavor with a honey-like hallertauer. Clean of esters and no oxidation. Touch of papery. Light body and strong carbonation. Nice enjoyable beer.

Disclaimer:This review may or may not be slanted... in Maui Brewing Company's favor... I reviewed this while sitting in the sunshine on beautiful Hanalei Bay, Kauai, which had me in happy-beach-mode.

Appearance:Light blonde, not much head, quite lively.
Smell:like most lagers, though sweeter smelling, but perhaps it is the sea air.
Taste:Crisp start,malty middle, sweet finish. True to helles style, and much more flavorful than I expected. Soft lingering taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Drinkability: One of my favorite lagers. I'm not much of a lager-lover, but I enjoy them on beach days. This was refreshing and not too bitter. Excellent find, Couz! Ono!

My parents brought this back from Hawaii, I showed my graditude by spilling about half the can on ground before drinking. Crying in my beer aside, what remains of the can pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick foamy head, probably a little larger than it would be if it was a controled pour, but it lingers very nicely. The aroma is crisp and grainy with hints of sweetness. The beer is crisp and dry with more of the grainy flavor from the aroma. The flavor is light, but what is there is nice. This is definitely a training wheels beer for the brewery, but not bad considering.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery while I was on vacation there. As a disclaimer, I should mention that I'm not a huge fan of light beers. This beer was straw colored. It has a light hop aroma with not much else present. The hop flavor is pretty good, and is the strongest flavor without being too strong. It is light bodied and I would consider it to have medium drinkability.
