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.

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Slightly hazed, bright gold appearance with a small white head and a fair amount of lacing. Subdued, sweet malt aroma. Bready, malty taste with a sweet, fruity edge. Light-to-medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Finish dries out a bit but does not linger very long. Nice, easy drinking, session beer.

Edgekrusher (84) - , Alabama, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Not very exciting, but it’s decent for the style. Golden-yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet malt and grains. Flavor is the same, with an ever-so-slight floral hop presence. Mouthfeel is light, but befitting of the style.

Comparable to yuengling. Little more malt flavor. Amber color with a white head.

boFNjackson (4186) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle... Poured golden yellow with a moderate head. Cracker malts with a little bit of a leafy hop presence. Lots of carbonation with your standard lager characteristics. Light, malt and hop balance, crisp, and refreshing.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2009
I have to go against the ratings on this one. For a style that never asserts itself enough I thought this was quite a nice and characterful lager. Average appearance yes, but the nose was a nice combo of warm malts and lemony flowers. Taste was quite malty for the style, and had a nice lemony quality and a decent bitter finish. I really enjoyed this beer, drank it slighty warmer than ideal but I think that brought out the flavours.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours gold with average head. Smells of plain malt, light, slightly fragrant. Tastes of some hay grass, and sweet malt. Nice fresh taste, refreshing island style, it doesnt disappoint. Its nothing outstanding, but very refreshing and good.

Cavie (3984) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Thin yellow pour. Odd smell and a taste to match. Has a piney aftertaste. Has a tangy zip to it. I do not like the taste. They should get off the island more.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Pours a clear standard yellow with a nice thick finger of whitish head with some cracked glass lacing. Sweet and grassy nose, some honey and fruitiness. Solid maltiness, with a touch of grain husks, full bodied sweetness, and a herbal grassy hop finish. The first time I had this my parents picked it out knowing I like good beer and I was a bit worried, but it is a damn good lager.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle, #459. Clear yellow pour with a small head. Interesting earthy flavor, but the aroma is of cheap lager and a bit of hop. Crisp finish. Decent for a lighter lager.

Also very popular on the big island. Basic everyday lager, smooth flavor. Great for a nice relaxing day on the beach. Some nice hop aspects.
