In beer blog, here is another beer from Maui Brewing. The beer is Bikini Blonde Lager. Of course, it is a can and that makes this beer special because they were one of the few breweries to just can than use bottles. If you read my beer blog post on their coconut porter, you know the history of this great beer. If you have not, please, read that beer post. Let us get into the beer.
This lager has a clear yellow color without a head on it. The smell has a sweet malty to slight citrus to the beer. The taste is something between a pilsner and lager. It is a malty to slight hoppy to the beer. The aftertaste is a crisp but sweet to the beer. Of course, this is a drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer cans:
Bikini Blonde is a fresh handcrafted Helles Lager brewed with the finest German hops and barley, not skimpy on flavor. Bold, smooth, and refreshing!
Here is a description from their website (www.mauibrewingco.com):
Our filtered Munich Helles Lager brewed with floral hops and Pilsner and Munich malts. This is the closest thing to an American lager from Maui Brewing Co. but not skimpy of flavor. Bold, smooth and refreshing!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Aloha, I am not a big fan of wheat ales and lagers. I get bored pretty quick with lagers, however, this lager gives you something different to a craft beer drinker. It is a Hellas lager and I really enjoy that German Beer Style. I love the fact that they get their hops and barley from Germany. They are still able to give it a light body that fits the tropical weather on Hawaii. I miss Hawaii but this beer takes me back to that time in my life. I had some friends bring this back from the Big Island and I want to thank them for it. If you are able to get this beer or any of their beers, go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
