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.

Poured a pretty light amber color with a decent head that laced ok. Lacing might have been the highlight. Aroma was sweet and somewhat corn-like. Flavor was a bit sloppy for a lager (light fruity esters in a lager? sweet and incomplete attenuation?) but a noticeable but light hop zing in the finish. Mouthfeel was light. Flavor was like a lighter and sweeter Sam Adams.

I have had this in draft in Hawaii, but tonight I am having it in bottle. This is a lager. Therefore there is nothing too complex going on here, but compared to most American Lagers, this is pretty good. Believe me, sitting next to a Tiki torch at Dukes in Waikiki, nothing can go wrong. This beer takes me back there. It’s pretty good. Not bad at 5.5%

ghawener (1454) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle: Truly a thirst quencher, slightly above average lager. To be enjoyed on a beach in Hawaii.

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Pale yellow with chill haze and even white head. Light grassy, doughy aromas. Full thick body for a lager. Light carbonation with a slightly snappy finish. Not as clean as I like.

Clear straw gold with a nice array of steady bubbles within. Small cap of firm white froth stays present throughout. No real lacing though, just a few spots. Aroma is plain but welcome of fluffy, dry whole grain goodness. Fresh, natural, and slightly sweet with a doughy center. Taste is pretty solid and the standard for an all malt lager. Sweet, firm, bready, and fluffy. Flavors are mild and long lasting with a nice malted grain taste and texture. Lightly spiced towards the finish with a grassy edged hoppy leafyness. Not bad. Very easy to drink. Feel is about medium and pretty firm with a holding texture of sweetish malt and a feathery dryness of flour grain and a light grassy finish. A solid lager. Sessionable and easy to quaff. A big thanks to my parents who always pick me up something from Hawaii when they make their annual winter vacation to the islands.

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow, with a medium, fizzy and quickly diminishing head. Grainy nose, somewhat sweet, and not very pleasant. This is the type of beer does nothing for me, except amplifies the tastes that I despise in BMC.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 13, 2006
Bottle - Pours a pale yellow in color with a white head. Aroma is a bit hoppy with the smell of sweet corn mixed in. Flavor is of both hops and corny malt. Finish is nicely hoppy and lingering.
