COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic German-Style Beer, Brewed in San Diego. Our Longfin Lager has become one of the go-to beers with the team at the brewery. A solidly balanced Helles inspired Lager with a clean, slightly hoppy finish that could easily fit in at any German beer garden. We think it’s perfect for enjoying on the beach, the boat or anywhere else you can put an ice chest full of beer.

scarletfire65 (1068) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Draft at Harding Tavern in Chicago. Pale yellow with small quickly diminishing head. Grainy cereal aroma. Lightly sweet, grainy, clean, really simple. There are much better examples of the style.

Light grain aromas, bready, slight honey, grassy hops. Clear gold with a mostly fading white head. Subtly sweet with light earthy hop tones. Light bodied.

BlackHaddock (4681) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
13th May 2015: on tap in JFAT (Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern), Dana Point, Orange County. Clear golden pour with no head by the time the glass got to my table. Crisp, sharp feel to the beer, more grain than hop in both the aroma and taste, grassy dry finish. Went well with the spicy meatballs.

drjay44 (2891) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2015
12 oz. can. Pours a medium, poorly retained white head, with slight lacing, over a slightly hazy straw (SRM 2) body....nose is light cereal, hints of white fruits (apple, pear), no esters, slight hop spice......taste is light cereal malts, slight sweetness, hints of light colored fruits, light hop spice, finishing with slight bitterness, balance....mouth feel, light almost watery body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The appearance is slightly off with the slight haze. Both aroma and flavor are within the style, but the body is too light. BJCP 7/2/13/4/6

This is a light lager that is smooth and fresh. Light looking that is great for san deigo beaches.

Clarkdvm (225) - Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle. Better than some standard domestic lager but that’s not saying much. Still rather plain.

TXBadger (1787) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes crisp and clean.

blipp (6709) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin white head. Very much in the Helles-influenced grouping of American craft lagers, with mildly sweet bready malts, some grainy hints, and faint floral bitterness. Relatively clean and easy to drink.

Cybercat (3874) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2015
Can. Pours clear, wan yellow with a thick and frothy but effervescent white head. Aroma is crisp and malty with a subtle fruity undertone. Flavor is malty, less fruity than the aroma - nothing special, but refreshing. Texture is weak and not very fizzy. Definitely not the brightest star in Ballast Point’s constellation, but will take the edge off a hot day.
