Our lightest beer, made from 100% malted barley. This blonde lager is what sailors really swam to shore for; it’s light, with very little bitterness and a slight malt finish.

This has become, in short order, my favorite Hawaii beer. Stayed away from Maui brewing because I despise their Big Swell IPA, but the Bikini Blonde is certainly a decent beer. It’s perhaps the heaviest lager you’ll ever find in a can. Malty without skunk and it finishes like a champ. Really nice session beer.

This canned brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated body semi-transparent yellow white colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish malt hop aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Aroma is slightly sweet grassy a bit herbal. Flavor is like nose, wood grain a little bit of Carbonic Tang. Soft carbonation okay beer nothing special at all.

Nothing special, but it does the job when you've had a few. I do not highly recommend but would say give it a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

anstei (2358) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Can, courtesy of Salvi, many thanks! Pours slightly cloud pineapple with a big head. Aroma is lightly fruity, but mostly pale malts. Body is light, with a crisp carbonation and a decent but soft sweetness and bitterness behind. Well rounded, but a bit watery. Pineapple flavour. Dry watery palate. Refreshing and quite good.

jbruner (4796) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy gold from the can with big bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of crisp lager esters with notes of hay and grass. Taste follows, a hint of corn, clean and easy. A solid lager.

12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 5/5/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly drying from bitterness as well. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a delicious Helles. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV. Nice clean pils malt showcase, with just enough earthy hops to balance. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Can at Paisley Beer Festival. Slight sweetness and honey lingering in the background, losing some of the crisp-bitter stuff. Very easy drinking, not massively to my taste though.

weitz15 (588) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Pale yellow pour, thin white head. Hint of urine in the flavor combined with heavy carbonation. Repurposed bud light?
