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.

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 Reviewed on: 02-17-2010

12 ounce bottle - Hop City Beer & Wine in Birmingham, Alabama.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale hay-hued beer with a medium-small, white head, though its retention is fair.

Smell: Pils maltiness with softly toasted grains, a little yeasty breadiness, and gentle hop notes of lemon and grassiness.

Taste: Subtle pils malt bill, lightly toasted grains, a modest cereal sweetness. Citrus alongside a minute grassiness, ample peppery hop bitterness. Scantly yeasty. A little more lemon precludes the crisp, easy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium, active carbonation.

Overall: A crisp, clean, refreshing beer for the Memorial Day Weekend.

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
