COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Not much aroma to it but it does have a nice taste. While typical of most lagers this one is a bit better than most. It has a nice balance to it that gives a malty flavor at first sip but then the hops began to show themselves giving it a bitter finish. The Hawaiian words with translations under the cap are cool too. Wonder how many a person would have to drink to learn to speak Hawaiian.

jjuf1853 (1228) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle pours a clear pale yellow with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet malts mostly. Flavor begins fairly sweet, some grassy, earthy notes, mild hops, and finishes with a slight bitterness. Quite smooth and refreshing.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a peachy straw yellow with a small head. Very bitter aroma with a honey background. Honey sweetness in the taste also with a nice fruitiness. Some bitterness. Highly drinkable.

Suttree (5041) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2008
Gold yellow, virtually no head. White bread, malty aroma, flavor is pretty much the same. Mostly inoffensive. Sampled at the Raleigh WBF.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2008
Pours golden with hardly any head or lace. Nose is pale malts. Flavor is the same with a not so pleasant finsih. I could chug this (which I did) but I can’t see drinking this regularly or ever ordering it on tap.

Lothore (544) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Clear golden color with minimal carbonation bubbles visible. Nice frothy head for an all-malt lager. S- Some hints of sweet malts but very faint nose. T- Crisp and malty with hints of metallic flavor which quickly subside. M- fairly thin and very carbonated. D- This would be a great alternative to a macro on a warm summer day. Very refreshing.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts and grassy hops. the flavor is slightly sweet upfront, bread, and finishes lightly bitter. Thin bodied, ok for a premium lager.

MacAnUltaigh (45) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
Not much of an aroma, albeit malty with a standard gold pour. One finger white head, little bit of lacing. From here on out it is best described as an earthier, slightly more bitter Corona Extra.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle courtesy of zinister. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of some citrus, earth, caramel. Tastes of dry malt, touches of citrus. Decent.

DYCSoccer17 (3300) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 13, 2008
12 ounce bottle purchased at Safeway in Davis, CA. Aroma is full of vegetables, corn, and some DMS. Mild grassy hoppiness is also present. Not too pleasing. Transparent golden body with a small-medium white head and scant lacing. Light spicy hop flavors to start, becoming creamy and milk-flavored in the middle Plenty of doughy malts. Finishes quick and grassy. Slightly metallic, too. Fair enough.
