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 itís perfect for enjoying on the beach, the boat or anywhere else you can put an ice chest full of beer.

Super Easy to drink. Great overall beer. Not overly complicated as to where its really unique.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 12 oz. can, from notes. First beer I had in my new house. Pours a bright golden pour with a styrofoam head. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, with bready lager sweetness. Flavor is bready sweetness balanced by floral hop bitterness. Medium bodied, interesting but not really that interesting. Finishes mildly bitter.

I get this in 6 pack cans. Nothing glamorous here. Itís an easy drinking lager and I just had one right after a Tecate. Marginally better. Though I wasnít expecting to be blown out of the water either. Iíd only suggest dumbing down the price of a 6íer a little, especially if this is the intended nature of this beer. Donít get me wrong, not a bad beer for a standard lager, but for $10.99 a 6 pack, I was hoping for something notable to write about. Doesnít get me shit-housed like Big Eye, so thatís a plus. Still $4 cheaper than a 6 of Sculpin, so thatís good too. One little thing that irks me, however... the cans are packed so tight that itís impossible to crack one open, even as slow as possible, without it spraying globules of beer over everything in an 8-12" diameter. I like the beer and I love LOVE Ballast Point beers, but I canít return to this on the regular.

Can. Pale. Straw. Yellow. Head? Yes. Retention? Not exactly. Nose? Piss. Taste? Grain. Summary: Boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring. Note: if this was a ímacroí brew, it would have gotten a more interesting rating due to exceeding expectations, but seeing as Ballast Point (up to this point) hasnít disappointed me, this one doesnít deserve the creative energy of a real review. Yes, Iím currently drunk and normally a dickhead anyway.

GABF 2013. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a lasting white head. A bit grassy, somewhat husky, lemon, light cracker aroma. Crisp, somewhat dry, toasted malty, light lemon flavor. Pretty easy drinking, basic brew.

A little too sweet. Uninhibited maltiness meets salt water taffy. Longfin has the nose of apple peels. The color is an obligatory off-tan, yellow.

This is a pretty decent bready lager in a vaguely European style. It is a cloudy golden color w/ grassy hops and grain husk in the nose. Taste is a bit on the sweet side w/ a slight buttery note that seems to fade to the background as you drink it. It is a flavor flaw but pretty minor and Iíd imagine if you drank this in quantity you would not care after a while. This is a decent beer w/ a reasonable amount of bitterness in the finish but I think there are lots of similar beers that work a lot better.

12oz bottle pours a bright clear golden/straw with a large white head. Aroma of sweet honey, slight yeast, a little bread, and some grassy hops. Taste is all around very light, light bread and very light grassy hops. Really not much flavor, but hey itís a very drinkable lager.

Bright yellow pour from a can. Nice white head. Grassy hops, citrus hops, light malt bill. Nice clean beer
