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.

harrisoni (13780) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle at GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. Clear pale gold lasting white head. No doubt cardboard on aroma. Some ok lemon in mouth but more cardboard on the finish. Yes more lemony and hoppy than most pale lagers but still the cardboard is not great.

bhensonb (11130) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours pale gold with a cream/fizzy white head. Aroma of dusty malt - hop? Med minus body. Pale malt flavor. Something demi-sour for hop? Comes over more like a wheat ale than a lager. It is malty. But a Dortmunder?

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a finger of white head. S: Some sweet malt and corn with a strong aroma of grass and straw. A light banana and apple ester quality to it with some hints of yeast. T: The beer is somewhat sweet with corn and biscuit malt flavors. The hop character is light, though there is a bit of bitterness to it. A light grass flavor and maybe some fruity esters. M: The body is light with a medium carbonation. O: Pretty simple light lager, but not really my favorite.
