COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
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.

it’s ok, Not bitter and light colored. Had no flavor really. Tasted like something thin. Some carbonation.

Alphadelic (1905) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Pale golden with a healthy white head. Lightly hopped with pale malts and cereal. A little stale but what you’d expect from a good lager. Sweet and easy malts on the tongue, slips on down with cereal tastiness like tat of cheerios. Well judged carbonation, a little thin but that keeps it refreshing. Very easy and drinkable. Sweet and refreshing, a handy lager to have around in the island heat.

Ubermunch (32) - Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Poured well, but smelled a bit funky. Taste is good and unexpectedly full. Bit of a corny/malty aftertaste that while not unpleasant... isn’t exactly completely pleasing. Compares well to other beers in this category, but is not necessarily a big standout. Might buy it again if the price is right. One quick note... Don’t miss out on the inside of the caps, each of which teach you a word in Hawaiian. Just 1200 more Kona Longboards and I think I’ll be able to order a beer in a Kona bar and compliment the bartender in the native language.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2009
10/22/08 From the bottle. Aroma is medium pils corny with a moderate pils background. Appearance is clear straw yellow with a well maintained white head. Flavor is sour, but not strong, pils malt forward; sweetness comes with time, fairly complex, with a quite floral noble finish. Mouthfeel is low bodied with a light slickness (diacetyl?) and high carb texture. Overall, easy drinking and more to it than example from macro brews.

PKPMarine (37) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2009
On tap at Beachside in Encinitas. Poured clear golden color with medium head and light carbonation. Sightly sweet with light hops. Smooth and easy to drink. Could use more carbonation. Not bad, but forgettable.

Bov (10370) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2009
<i>courtesy of MadDan</i> - slightly hazy golden colour with a poor head retention; nose of corn, aromatic hoppiness and fresh lemon; subtle carbonation and medium-bodied, fresh and dynamic, lively palate; decently bitter with a long finish of herbs and yellow fruits - very drinkable

Pours a golden color with a thick head. First glass I tried, the beer came off tasting skunky to me - not sure if it was me or the beer. So, I dumped and tried another one the next day. This time I got an aroma of spice, hops, and malt. Taste was better the second time around with a slight pine, hop and floral taste. I prefer their pale ale offering but this wasn’t bad.

popephred (264) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a clear, wheat colored body, topped by a small head of white foam, which diminished quickly. Aroma is a fair balance of hops and malt. Medium bodied, with a malty sweetness. Palate isn’t eclectic, and shouldn’t be. This is a smooth drinking beer with a bit of a hops afterbite at the end to give it a little character. Not memorable, but not bad...

ChainGangGuy (4505) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
$1.39 12 oz. single at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Packaged on July 3rd, 2008. Appearance: Pours a clear, golden body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Aroma smelling of light pale malts, an incredibly light touch of caramel, and distinctive spicy hops. Oh, and a tiny hint of dinner rolls. Taste: Light pale maltiness with a light, brief sweetness and hint of washed out caramel. Faintest hint of wheat chaff. Spicy, Saaz hops with a light, cleansing bitterness. Finishes quite crisp with a flutter of both carbonation of spicy hop character. Bits of dough in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Decent. I will say it certainly displays more malt and hop character than your basic macro lager.
