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'.

12oz can into SA Perfect pint.

A: Pours a deep golden color with yellow highlights beneath a thick bright white head that faded into a fuzzy white film. Soapy lace was left down the glass.
S: Scents of creamy oats and roasted grains with mild spicy herbal hops.
T: Follows the nose. Earthy, spicy, hops, and bready yeast stand out. Bready overall. The finish is full of cereal grains and a light sweetness. There’s a hint of honey in the aftertaste.
M: Extremely creamy and soft mouthfeel, very fluffy and velvet carbonation, full mouthfeel.
O: Solid, clean, and bready. Very fluffy and soft mouthfeel. Goes down easy and smooth.

This is a solid helles beer.

Appearance: Nice straw color, hazy, effervescent, with some hanging proteins.

Smell: Straw with faint scent of german hops.

Taste: Clean with a light bite at the finish and gentle hops

Mouthfeel: Velvety and lingering!

Would be a solid session beer on a hot day.
