2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I get this in 6 pack cans. Nothing glamorous here. It’s an easy drinking lager and I just had one right after a Tecate. Marginally better. Though I wasn’t expecting to be blown out of the water either. I’d only suggest dumbing down the price of a 6’er a little, especially if this is the intended nature of this beer. Don’t 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. Doesn’t get me shit-housed like Big Eye, so that’s a plus. Still $4 cheaper than a 6 of Sculpin, so that’s good too. One little thing that irks me, however... the cans are packed so tight that it’s 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 can’t return to this on the regular.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Smells grainy and slightly sweet. Taste is sweet, grain, hints of yeast and hops, as Helles is supposed to be. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Longfin Lager finishes with a subtle lingering sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Grains, cornbread.
A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Cornbread, sweet grains, honey.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish.
O- Far from a favorite style of mine but a solid beer. I actually liked it more as it warmed. It became sweeter and the corn came through more and not in a nasty way. It was almost like a cornbread drizzled with honey. Pretty decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Phil’s BBQ, San Diego Airport. Pours clear and lightly sparkling yellow with a small, tight-bubbled white head, short retention leaving a patchy film and spotty lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet and corny and grainy Pils malt, light spicy Noble hops and a clean lager character. Flavor is lightly sweet and crisp grainy and corny Pils malt, medium-light spicy and earthy Noble hops and bitterness, well balanced but the malt ultimately prevails, clean with a dry finish. Light body, moderate carbonation with a light carbonic bite, no warmth, creaminess or astringency. This is a crisp and refreshing lager, perfect for cooling off an a hot day.

Another summer day is reason enough for another German-inspired Ballast Point brew. Yellow pour with several fingers of bubbly foam. Pleasant cereal grain aromas. Clean, bicuity malt body with a delicate flowery hop end note. Medium-lively carbonation. Pretty nice.
