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.

Sampled at West Coast Brew Fest ’08 ~Pours a yellow golden colour with creamy white head. ~ Malty wheat scent.Similar to that of a pilsener. ~ Has a mellow sweet wheat taste. ~This is a nice easy to drink lager.

Draft at Coconuts on the Beach. Pours a clear yellow color with small, thin white head. Light floral aroma. Thin, watery palate. The flavor is grainy with an intertesting fruitiness to it. Nothing amazing but would certainly choose this over a Bud Light.

Pours a golden yellow with nice white foam. Nice sweet malt and bite-y hops. Nice balance. A bit pricey. 95%. $8.99 a sixer at a local beershop.

A light slightly hazy lager. Sweet with a very small hint of hops. Easy drinking but nothing to write home about.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle: Dark golden in color with caramel overtones running through the nose along with a touch of chocolate and citric honey. The palate is more of the same and while the midpalate is semi-sweet the finish is quite dry and abrupt. Eh.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2010 Not bad. Not too much on the nose though. Taste is well its a lager. No problem drinking it if offered and may even choose it over other more well known names if at a pub. Re-rating this. Palates improved. This is nutty! Buttery. Much more creamy than I remember. However the nose is reminiscent of detergent. I will have to compare this to Maui’s Bikini Blonde Lager, my favorite lager, and surprisingly I have to say I prefer this Kona. The colour is superior, the taste is comparable, and however the alc% is higher. This actually looks like its trying to be something more than a lager, say an IPA, however not quite. The taste a bit bolder but still smooth and lite. As far as lager goes maybe not the better lager but arguably the better beer. Very interesting. Bumping up the flavor to 7 from 5 and the overall to 14 from 12.

Sadly, I wasn’t impressed with this brew. Your typical lager, it pours dark, but clear amber colour with a small white head. Carries a soft somewhat fruity character, which for a little while transports you somewhere tropical (if you close your eyes and imagine). Carmel, plum and toffee in the flavor.

On tap at local drunk bar -all stars- ... Looks like a regular ole Lager ... smell seems quite average to, but better than any BMC ... Is enjoyable! ... quite full for a widely available lager ... "not quite ants at a picnic"
