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.

12oz can courtesy of Shane. Thanks! A: Pale straw color with a 1/2 inch of fluffy white head. Semi transparent and reminiscent of lighter beers. N: Good mixture of some light lemon, grass, pale malt, and a touch of grapefruit and pine from the hops. Some light banana and green peppercorn. It has an appreciable sensation that works well for its style. Flavors are light and delicate. T: A strong sense of hop bitterness followed up by a zesty pepper. The malt is the third tier here which I quite enjoy. M: Easy sipper. Well within style. O: I’m seeing a lot of low scores from what I assume are non-fresh bottles shipped across the country. I think the cans will mitigate this issue because this is a solid, refreshing beer with a touch of hops and spice to make it worth enjoying. Buy it fresh and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Skip it. In my opinion craft beer was supposed to free us from that yellow fizzy crap, which this is. Smell, taste, and appearance were all similar to the mass produced lagers out there.

8 ounce sample at Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a really good grassy character with some cereal malt sweetness. Transparent golden body with a medium, strong white head. Good lacing. Starts with some metallic flavors, before some grassiness comes through in the middle. Finishes with lots of cracker and paperiness. Definitely strong on the craacker. Light astringency in the middle.

Pours a light yellow with white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is faint cereal. Palate is light with malty sweetness and lingering bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable but not worth $2/btl in a six in MA.

Rando7 (734) - Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle pours clear straw color with thin white brief head. Aroma skunky. Light taste of sweet malts with what seems like corn flavor. Watery palate but a nice crisp tingle. Brief finish, very slightly bitter. Not much to it but I guess you could drink a few with no problem.

Golden with thin white head. Mild floral, mild helles skunk, and lite lemon notes. Full bodied lager, nice balance front to back, decent hop zest, tongue tingler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (2696) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle - Total Wine strikes again, as I didn’t check the enjoy by date--shame on me. Turns out this expired nearly 2 months ago. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Nose is skunky, with corn and honey sweetness. Taste is mineral, skunky floral hops, and honeyed pale malt. Thinnish with bubbly carbonation.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour, soft white head, hint of lacing. Aroma has some corn syrup notes, a hint of bready maltiness. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some sweet cake mix notes, a touch of corn flakes. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Doughy malt aroma. Very pale yellow. Grainy, cookie taste with just hints of caramel and hops.Kind of watery, needs more bite. Excellent for a basic lager, but that’s not what it rings up as.

Bottle from Mari’s. Pours pale yellow with a white film and active carbonation. Looks almost like Coors Light. The aroma has wheat, dough, a little grain. The taste is really light, crisp but without a hop presence at all.. a little corn flavor maybe? Not bad but not great.
