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.

Too sweet, slightly skunky. I’m drinking one now that sat in the fridge until I ran out of everything else. You know, it’s bad enough that Foster’s ("Australian for beer") is really made in Canada. But here we have a so-called "Island Lager" with a Hawaiian-sounding brewery name (Kona Brewing Co.), people on the label surfing, and so on. But it’s actually made in freaking New Hampshire. Is there a lot of surfing in New Hampshire? Is New Hampshire an island? The beer is almost as bad as their marketing strategy.

355ml bottle into schooner glass. Malty bready nose, a little background hoppiness. Hazy amber beer with thin white head which diminishes to a film. Full-bodied and smooth. Spicy and bitter taste, finish is caramel malt. Very tasty lager, a notch above the usual.

nathanvc (243) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from an Esselunga supermarket in Lucca. Pours clear and golden with a frothy white head. The aroma contains lots of malts, grain, hay and some citrus. It tastes medium sweet and ends light bitter. Watery texture and light body, but very, very refreshing.

Dredd (836) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2016
Pour is cloudy gold straw with thin head. Aroma is a bit funky with some honey notes and some unfortunate cardboard and marmite notes. Flavour is slight sweet upfront with thin mid palate and minimal hop finish. Not the greatest beer from kona sadly.

Easy to drink, but that’s not always a good thing. While I generally find Kona to have good beers relative to their size as a brewery, their flagship lager falls short in a big way. Enjoyed in a bottle.

Nice color, pours nice. Not much of an aroma. It is a lager, but a rater boring one. Overall an Okay lager, but nothing special
