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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
From six pack at a 4th of July party. Pours clear light golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Mild aroma, primary grainy malts with some floral notes, not much to describe. Sweetish grainy and toasty malt flavor, bit of grass and floral hop bitterness and hints of orange. Light to medium body and crisply tingly carbonation. Inoffensive and a good hot summer eve swillin’ beer.

Bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours to a clear, pale yellow colored body with a medium white head that quickly fades to nothing. The aroma is a bit of light, pale malts, grains, and the barest hints of floral hops. Taste is mild pale malts, corn syrup, and a tiny bit of hop bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonated.

Had this out of a keg at the Mensa AG in Denver, Colorado. It comes out a nice dark amber with a fairly substantial head, better than most lagers. Aroma is nice and malty with a touch of hops. Flavor is strong and malty, and has a substantial hop component - there is just a whisper of evergreen. Mouthfeel is lively, zingy and sassy, making it a delight to drink.

Very tasty lager from Kona. Rich and flavorful. Nice balance of hops and malt... caramel?

12 oz bottle from Ocean Wine & Spirits. Pours a thin clear golden orange with an average size fizzy quickly disipating bright white head. Aroma started off with a nice quick burst of crisp hops but that quickly fades. What’s left is more of an earthy dirt with some citrus, pepper, and grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation and almost a slight syrupy mouthfeel that finishes slightly dry. Flavor of citrus rind, earth and some pepper. Well it’s gonna be long before I want another one of these because it left me feeling rather bored.

TheBeerGod (5572) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle. PKGD ON MAY1908. Light gold pour to this with a rather small white head. Nose is honey, light grains, sweet malt, and biscuit notes. Some spicy hops as well. Taste is sweet and malty with more spicy hops, touch of sourdough, honey and light lemon. Some yeast and grassy notes come through as well. Body is medium with a dense fizzy carbonation. Finishes with more bread and yeast notes, soft butter, lemon, touch of honey, grains and grass. Spicy hops trail off here.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2008
20080628 12oz bottle Dark golden color with lasting tight white head. Aroma is sweet and a bit papery with light vegetal notes and mildly spicy (pepper) hops. Mouthfeel is substantial for a pale lager and alcohol is evident especially at finish. Sweet, doughy, and with hints of more peppery hops. Nothing remarkable about this one.

Poured from bottle a golden color with small white head. Aroma is a slight floral hop and hay. Flavor is a little bisquity with grassy hay and a very mild toast. This beer ends with a tart bitterness which becomes astringent as the beer warms. Overall, decent if drunk cold on a hot day, otherwise I’d choose a different beer if available.

on tap marco island, florida. hoped and expected more, especially with the heat. as the beer warmed, the worse it became, probably would be decent cold from a bottle.
