COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Longboard Island Lager is a smooth refreshing lager fermented and aged for weeks at cold temperatures to yield its exceptionally smooth flavor. A delicate, slightly spicy hop aroma complements the malty body of this beer.

(bottle) deep gold. Malt aroma with a hint of hops. Fairly full bodied with nice malt flavor and distinct hops. Their website says there is some wheat in there as well - I didn’t notice it. A nice lager.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is kinda corny and malty and nothing else. Flavor is ok for a lager. Quite hoppy for a lager with some sweet malts and grass. Not a bad lager for the masses.

Light malty aroma with a hint of hop. Golden color with a slight copper tinge, and a substantial white head. A bit thin bodied. The start is light malt, a bit sweeter than some lagers, and there is enough bitter in the finish to make this a good experience.

not a terrible lager by any means, however, I was left unfulfilled. The longboard has nice color and a light to medium head. short on the follow through. i did have a nice veiw of Waikiki beach when drinking this one.

Sampled on draft at the brewery in Kona, Hawaii. The beer has a darker gold color with a barely existent, white, foamy head on the edges of the glass. A nice malt and floral hop aroma. Mostly bitter tasting and some sour tones underneath. A mostly wet beer, which is a bit thin, with average fizzyness and some waming dryness at the finish.

vyvvy (4133) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Pours light gold with a frothy white head. The aroma has pale malt, peppery hop spice and hints of fruit. Medium / light body with lots of sharp carbonation in the back of the mouth. The flavor starts with lightly fruity pale malt and bits of citrus, overall smooth. The finish has some hop spice. Not a bad beer, but fairly simplistic and boring.

Medium gold, with a rather hoppy aroma. Flavor is quite bold for a lager, with a good bit of hops and a fine malty backbone. Probably a bit underrated - it’s a damn fine lager.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours wiht a yellow color and amedium head. Aromas of grain and a bit of hops. Flavors of spice, hops and bread. Much more body than a typical lager. Quite nice on a summer day.

Okay. A little too hoppy for my liking but still a decent beer.

Bottle from Immy, thanks man! Pours a deeper shade of yellow, into a frothy white cap. Some lace. Nose is of creamed corn, hay, quite hoppy, and there’s a lot of malts here as well when comparing it to all the Euro Lagers we get over here. Still the corn is off putting. Flavour is pretty hoppy, grassy, some hay, maybe a touch of butterscotch with some good malts. FInishes with good bitterness, slight astringency. Good! Thanks Tim!
