This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Pretty one-dimensional...hops all around. It wasn’t unpleasant, just not the caliber of beer that I was looking for.

On tap in Hawaii. Decent aroma, nice carbonation. A hint of sweetness there. Very tame and safe but enjoyable with the meal.

Picked up single 12-oz bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours a clear pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white ring. Aroma of corn grits, some buttery biscuits, a touch of vegetable and flowery hops. Taste is light bodied, decent carbonation with flavors of corn, a touch of yeast and some sour citrus. Finish is slightly bitter and then a clean cut finish.

Not so bad. Light and refreshing. I taste very light spices, malt, and corn. Yellow. Nothing offensive at least.

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...
