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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from Samís in Durham. Nothing offensive here, but nothing great either. Pours slightly hazy bright gold--a good looking beer--but tastes just slightly better than your average lager.

Can. Poured clear light golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate floral lager aroma. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Soft beer for this brewer.

rougeau13 (2190) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Very pale, slightly hazy yellow, with a white head. Aroma of citrus, straw, and grass. Taste is bready, slightly sweet, and decently bitter. Light bodied and crisp. Quite good for this style.

TheBeerGod (5568) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Can. Gold body with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is sweet malt, light biscuit, grass and lemony notes. Taste is grassy hops, biscuit, sweet malt, bread dough and lemony notes. Light honey as well. Body is light-medium with a strong bubbly and prickly carbonation. Ends with more grassy hops, sweet malt, light honey, lemon and biscuit notes. Nice summer beer!

ccex (1074) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12 oz. can pours a pale yellow straw color with small, short-lived white head and no lacing. Aroma is full of bread and grass. Taste is slightly bitter without much of a finish. Body is light with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing and easy to drink. If the label didnít say Ballast Point, I would have said that this is has the taste of a classic malty lager that is distincly German.

drowland (6824) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2015
7/4/15. On tap, Craft on Draft. Basically clear golden pour with a nice off-white head, good lacing. Looks good. Doughy aroma, lots of cracker and biscuit, light lemon zest, seltzer water. Doughy flavor, almost corn, raw pizza dough, pils malt, lemon zest. Not bad.

12oz can. Been waiting a while to try this one, very excited for it to finally arrive. Code on bottom reads 15160 11:05 LF 103. Pours a clear golden color, with a fizzing airy finger of white head, fades to a thin ring. No lace sticks. Nice bigger bready malt up front in the nose. Some pepperiness to the flavor. Bit of cornbread. A mild bite towards the finish. A decent bit of citrusy and peppery hop. Some interesting lager mustiness. Mild bit of butter. Moderate-plus sweet taste. Light to moderate bitter. Lighter to medium body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter, kind of crisp, slightly effervescent carbonation. Solid, interesting helles. Pleasant bit of hop that adds some bitterness but doesnít distract. Was nicer to sip on itís own than with my sub. Solid. But unnecessarily premium at $11/6pk. Was hoping for more, from Ballast Point.

Can: Strong hay and grain aroma. Crystal clear yellow, thick head, good lace. Grain, cane sugar. Paper finish. Light body, easy carbonation. Nice intensity for a lager, but too sweet.
