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.

Pours a four finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear, very pale amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Musty hoppy nose. Flavor is hay, honey and hints of hops. Good lawn mower beer. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT. Bottled Apr 29, 09.

obguthr (4425) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Smells of burned popcorn kernels and cow shit. Clear yellow, no head. Rice water with a lemon twist. Rarefied and gross. Grassy finish. A good slogan for this beer would be "Nothing ventured, nothing gained", which applies equally well to both brewer and buyer. Gross!

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Very clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is the same with a light hop bitterness at the end. Ease to drink, light body, great for a hot day.

gpekar (476) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Poured a crystal clear dark yellow with a nice bright white head. There was a mild citrus aroma and some makt earthiness too. There was good carbonation and a good amount of carbonation bubbles rising in the glass. The taste was crisp & clean with a light lemony citrus flavor, slightly dry. There was a small hint of a hop bit towards the finish, but very faint. The head left a light amount of lacing. This beer was easy drinking and refreshing.

Bottled on April 21, 2009. Pours a very bright yellow with a good head. The aroma is white corn and hay, but pretty clean. Low levels of Eruopean hops are apparent. The palate is light, not too light, just right for a yellow lager. This is crisp and clean with no sour or bad vegetation in the flavor. This is refreshing and palatable. It’s good for those rare occassions I want one light lager.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 4, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold, with a touch of cloudiness. Even with an aggressive pour, I was unable to get any sort of head to form. Aroma: Sweet summer corn, dry malts, and a little bit of bitter hop. Taste: Honey sweetness, light, dry buscuity malt, bitter, metallic hops, with a fruity, light hoppy finish. Mouthfeel: Full bodied, crisp. Overall: Probably one of the first craft lagers I have ever had. Has a unique flavor compared to other pale lagers, very refreshing and satisfying.

VertBaconStrips (2151) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
Easy easy drinking. almost zero head poured, but tons of tiny happy bubbles kept a-commin. A lightly fizzy dirty straw colour with that was slightly hopped - nice quiet bitterness and prominent sweet cirtusy flavour and somewhat creamy. Not a lot in the aroma category and i had a hard time nailing down that part of it. Once again, I’d never say no to Kona Brews cause they go down really fine.

On tap at Dog Tooth bar and grill in Seaside Heights, NJ. 2 Bucks!! Can’t go wrong there. Was surprised to see a Kona on the mainland outside of HI. Much less NJ. Def a decent, easy-drinking summer beer. Recommended.

Smooth and competent. Easy to knock back. Like an agreeable macro lager, with more quality ingredients
