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.

Clear orange pour with small head for a lager. Aroma of wheats and fruit. Flavor of some wheat and hops, typical lager tastes. Finishes smooth though, I could drink a few of these.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle in Maui. Pours a light clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat and some faint melon rind. Flavour is also quite wheaty with some cardboard and faint hops in the finish. Kind of flavourless overall and yet not terrible. Perhaps watching a luau makes everything taste better (?)

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Sweet nose with a hint of yeast. Reminds of some great dusty German pilsners. Very clear golden with a lasting white head. Taste is predominately sweet with low bitterness, a good sunny malt surging through the middle. Crisp, silky smooth, and light-medium body. No diacetyl or other obvious no-nos. A flawless light American lager!

votzer (77) - Hixson, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Small white head that vanishes quickly, cloudy golden yellow color, sweet light malty aroma, easy drinking sweet malt with a bit of spice flavor and crisp finish. Refreshing and smooth but nothing special.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Clear yellow pour with a two finger white froth that dissipates quickly. The nose comes through with cereal grains and hints of spicy hop. The flavor holds more cereal grains with hints of caramel malt and the slightest toasty toffee. The hop character is very minimal. Smooth and soft in the texture with a super clean finish. Not much going on here- a light thirst quencher for sure.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
Didnít get to pour it. Nose: Sweet cereals, california grass, a touch of spearmint, crisp barley. Taste: Slight hop presence that hangs around for the duration, rolled oats, dry malt, cucumber, parsley. Finish is bitter and medium short and contains a touch of soap. Nothing crazy out of balance here and quite drinkable but not one to sing songs about.

poisoneddwarf (2247) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2010
12 oz bottle into shaker. Aroma is sweet corn, grain. Pours an extremely pale hazy yellow with a medium dissappearing head and decent lace. Taste is sweet with no bitterness. Pretty bland. Medium carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. Fairly boring but not bad. No offnotes.

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Appearance- This beer poured a pale yellow with a descent size white head. Lacing was present throughout. Smell- It had a nice, clean malty smell too it. Taste- Very good for a lager. Wonderful, refreshing malty flavors with a nice hoppy bitterness which created a nice balance. Mouth Feel- A nice medium body with medium carbonation. Overall- A fantastic lager. I went into this expecting a typical macro style lager but was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Nice light beer with pleanty of flavor. I would love to be sitting on the beaches of Hawaii drinking this one!!

One of the nicest pale lagers Iíve had. I know itís in the "premium" category, but this is as pale as pale gets. It pours a watery pale yellow with a decent white head that disappears quickly. The appearance doesnít inspire confidence. The aroma is fairly decent if not a bit sweetish. Thereís notes of grains, corn, maybe some peaches and a note of spicy hops. The flavor is a little too sweet, but not offensive at all. Hints of noble hops (very light) and mostly some fruity malts and grains. This is an easy drinking lawnmowing beer thatís a good one for hot summer days in the backyard with non beer geek houseguests.
