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.

Bottle. Pale slightly hazy yellow pour with a small pure white head. Grainy nose with just the tiniest hint of skunk. Crisp clean palate with a lemony grain taste, some grassy hops. Good tasting brew.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with part of the stamp rubbed of. I see the numbers 25 and 3784. The pour is a slightly hazy pale yellow and a fast acting white fizzy head. The aroma is Euro-malts, light toffee, slight citrus, and herbal quality. The body is light, creamy but certainly not watery. The taste has Germany all over it with the sweet biscuit malt character, herbs, and a balanced clean finish. It is a well put together lager.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Clear yellow in color with a short-lived 1 inch white head of foam. Somewhat decent malt aroma, good mouthfeel, loses me on taste- malt profile greatly resembles Coors Banquet, just turned up a couple of notches, certainly not what you would expect for a beer labeled as a Helles.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 One of my go-to lagers is Ballast Point’s Longfin. With a mellow understated nose of corn flakes and plantains, the beer serves greater purpose on the palate. A crisp structured body carries grainy biscuity notes that last through to the smooth finish. ---- instagram.com/pintofbitter

Tap at Mikkeller Bar SF. Actually a pretty solid lager. Light citrus and bread notes on the nose. Taste is clean and crisp. Solid stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Bronx Ale House. A bland lager, with a little corn sugar-like sweetness. Very light body and hops. Come on, Ballast Point - you can do better than this.

Hazy pale gold beer with a short lived white head. Light crispy palate. Dry pale malt. Strong minerals. Forensic trace of citric hop. Crisp finish. Muted and dull and a bit dry.

No, I can’t say I liked this one. First impression was it tastes like Coors. Sampled at a free tasting offered by the brewery rep. From a can. Pour is straw yellow. Not much aroma. Taste is plain and not very interesting. I might have liked it better with more than a swallow of a sample, but this just turned me off. I see Ballast Point has some well-liked beers, but this wasn’t a good first impression for me.

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