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.

Draught at some bar in LBI. Pours a body slightly lighter than yeungling. Nice aroma with a bit of hops. Taste is light and refreshing, with some spice and hops.

Pour is yellow lager like but with a bit of cloudiness and some white dissipating head. Smell is light malt, touch yeast and hops and is decent. Taste is mild light malt, with just a tiny hint of a spiced hefeweisen like taste in the middle, which Iím guessing is from the wheat, and it finishes pretty simply with a very mild sweet finish. This is worth a shot if its available, and Iím sure especially if fresh in Hawaii, but nothing too spectacular. It is a bit unique for a lager, Iíll say, though.

Great flavor with mild bitterness. Goes down smooth. Flavor similar to Coors Light except that Kona is smoother and more enjoyable to drink.

Pours virtually zero head. Slight white ring around the glass, but thatís it. Light golden color that reminds me of Coors Light. Nice fresh lager scent. Again, reminded me of Coors Light. Very refreshing taste. The body reminds me of an American premium (is that what the style is called?), but it has must better hop character, sort of like a Pilsner Urquel. No aroma to speak of. Nice beer overall for a lawnmower beer!!

beerbill (3384) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2007
On tap at the Harbourfront Loft in Greenport, NY. Pours a clear gold with a white head that was quickly chased away after the first few sips. Really not much aroma to speak of. The flavor was light and was typical for a lager with light malt and grass. The finish was more bitter than the typical lager with some lingering bitterness after the swallow. All around slightly above average.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
Draught at House of Brews, 51st. Pale golden lager with a slight haze. Next to no head. Little aroma to be found. Notest of raspberry and apricots. Crisp hoppy and fruity flavours. Lightly hopped. Decent.

BREWMUSKCLES (2228) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2007
NOT BAD FOR A LAGER. FRUITY AND REFRESHING. DECENT BODY WITH GOOD CARBONATION AND BACKWASH. A LITTLE THIN WITH AN AFTERTASTE THAT I FOUND ANNOYING. ONE BEER WONDER. AND FOR THAT ITíS OK!

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 (3962) - 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.
