Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Pours a crystal clear straw golden. Very corn-like biscuity malt sweetness, with a touch of lager yeast funk and lemon. Medium carbonation with a very bland character, but a touch of hops and citrus.

9/14/2007: Kona Longboard Lager pours a foggy golden yellow color with a small, quickly diminishing off-white head. There is a moderate level of carbonation present. The aroma has pale malt with a touch of sour citrus. The flavor is lightly toasted pale malt (slightly sweet with a honey undertones) with a quenching, mild, mostly floral (with a touch of citrus) bitterness. The body is medium-light and it is smooth on the palate. While not great, this beer is actually quite decent and MUCH better than the macro alternatives. I wouldn’t pass up another bottle of this or any other Kona beer if there wasn’t an obviously better alternative available...

12 fl. oz. bottle (PKDG ON AUG3106) from decaturstevo. Thanks Stevo. I really appreciate this one since it is my first Hawaii beer rating! Rating #206 for this beer...

Very light in flavor, appearance, and aroma. Not the least bit insulting, after all, its meant to quinch your thirst on those hot days. Never been to hawaii, but I like this beer.

It looked like it had the consistency of water and seemed like everything a yellow, fizzy wuss beer should be. A flat, off-white head, no clues in the aroma. On the first swig, it went straight down the tubes and kept me waiting, until right after I finally got a wash of warm, smooth malts. I wished it were like that from the beginning, but hey, you can’t get everything you ask for.

Bottle. Light golden in color. Faint sweet malty smell. Not a very strong or pronounced flavor. Can taste slight hops. Decent finish. Fairly carbonated

Not a bad lager, sweet tasting flavor was noticeable, with a nice, clean finish. I’m sure I could go through a few of these rather quickly on a nice sunny day.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 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. I really enjoyed this, but didnt buy a second one.

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 I’m 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 I’m sure especially if fresh in Hawaii, but nothing too spectacular. It is a bit unique for a lager, I’ll say, though.
