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

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.

Better than average for the style, but not good enough to transcend the style limitations. Light, crisp and clean with a sturdy grain and faint hop backbone w some light fruit in the flavor. Enjoyed, but glad I didnít get 6."

Nice yellow body with a small white head. The aroma has a nice bready malt character, with some noble hop notes and some clean lager yeast. Nice balance of malt and hop flavor, very nice beer.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A light sweet grainy nose. Smooth, honey, grains, ok. A good easy drinking lager.

Pours a pale gold. Light corny aroma. Light body, medium to full carbonation. Bready dough, lemon, corn, light honey, metal... Not much to this. Itís OK.

A nice golden color with a white head. Aroma is grassy, some hops and slight malt. Taste is hops, grass, slight sweet and refreshing. An ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This was a nice, crisp lager. Just the right amount of carbonation. Light malt flavors. Pretty good overall.

Ontape (318) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a bit hazy, straw to gold. Typical lager aroma -- cereal grains, dough, maybe a light touch of Noble hops in the background. Taste follows, a bit sweet but pretty well balanced and clean overall. Enjoyable but not remarkable or particularly memorable.

Draught spring lounge. Pale golden pour. Little bit of grass and straw. OK. Nothing special.

can. crystal clear pale gold with a fluffy bleach white head that lasts for only a minute. fresh grassy aroma. simply lager flavor with grassy hops. straw, hay. palate is lightly carbonated for a premium lager. there is absolutely no head retention.
