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.

Poured a golden color. Smooth beer with little to no aftertaste. An average beer that would be great in the summer.

Bottle at Dos in Davis. Well, there’s something to be said about this beer’s palate, although nothing more wowed me. All the flavor is up front without a real aftertaste. Very well brewed, but average as a lager.

A 12 oz bottle. A packaged date on the neck of the bottle. The beer poured a golden body with a fizzy white head. The smell was a nice floral hop. Taste was a hop and bread flavor. Ok carbonation. 6 Pack

Better than standard fare lagers. sweet and citrusy with a mild biscuit malt base. a little thin but a pleasant sight for sore eyes swimming in a sea (cooler) of MGD and Bud Light.

Ratman197 (10640) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, light citreus and a hint of earthiness with a crisp lightly bitter finish.

So this is far from the extreme beers that I tend to gravitate to but is overall a very well-crafted lager. I can readily get this in the bottle and have had it at the brewery as well...vibrant golden-color with small white head. The aroma is faint...but the flavor is definitely solid. To speak in rather abstract terms...it’s crisp, clean, and "bright". If you have a friend that you’d like to transition out of the "macro madness"...this is a good beer to test the waters with.

Draft. Deep golden in color, solid white head. Smooth, creamy, malty, yet crisp. An all around good lager.

Poured out a beautiful golden color. I’d go so far as to say the beer is refreshing. Nothing much to it flavor-wise, but nothing much to offend either. Has more taste than a Bud Light, but then again, so does Miller Lite.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Bottle. Smooth, easy drinking beer. And what’s wrong with that? The taste is very smooth, maybe a little extra malt and carmel flavor for a lager. Perhaps owing to its Hawain roots, goes for a mellow rather than crisp finish. Very slight hint of melon. Golden yellow color with little head.

Had it in Hawaii, and can currently get it at a bar 50 yards from my home in Fort Collins, CO. Nothing special, but not too bad either. I can’t drink more than 2 or 3 of these at a time though.
