Pours a light yellow with a pretty good white head. Smell is a little bit of grain and grassiness; not the best overall, but for its style pretty good. Pretty light flavor, not surpassing most others of the style as the nose did. Mouthfeel was light and crisp, and drinkability was nice. Overall, very nice for its style, but still lacking in too many departments to justify a higher score than this.
Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at PP C’Bad. Pours clear light yellow with a nice white head, spider web lace. Smells light and malty crisp. Man is this a tasty fizzy yellow beer. Nice tasty malts and then slightly nutty hops. Not nutty in a bad way though. Medium body, good carbonation.

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.

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
