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.

on tap marco island, florida. hoped and expected more, especially with the heat. as the beer warmed, the worse it became, probably would be decent cold from a bottle.

Pours golden. Aroma of wheat and malts. Flavor is slightly skunky, with some wheat and strange hops. I just can’t get into this beer. My original rating had this as simply an enhanced version of Bud Heavy. But that’s a low blow.

Served in a stemmed pilsner glass on tap- I wish the beer tasted as good as it looked. Appealing deep golden color but virtually no head retention. Unassuming middle, slight hop on the finish. An OK lager but not what I was expecting.

Botnik (142) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Pale, snow white foam, refreshing. A competent premium lager. I was told that Kona doesn’t ship their beer to the continental US, so I was quite surprised to find a bottle of this for sale at Lone Star Beverages, in Carrollton, TX.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Born on date: 14 feb 08. Gold with white head no lacing. Nice aroma, floral, herbal. Sweet malts, very bitter hops for a lager. Crisp, clean on the palate. Very close to APA hop presence. Pretty darn nice for a premium lager. Great beach beer. The label has changed from the present photo.

For an American lager, Longboard has the usual straw yellow color. Non existant head and this beer shows no carbonation. Looks more like a sports drink rather than beer. Smells better than it looks. Buttery wheat, hint of honey and a slight not not usual for a mass market lager. Taste is majority bitter, apparently more hops included than I noticed in the aroma. The butter taste comes to the tongue next. Palate is what you expect if a bit thicker. This lager stacks up better than the mass market majors but is below Sam Adams.

glennmastrange (2287) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle. Light notes of grain, herbs, corn and paper. Head is small and fizzy that quickly and fully diminishes with no lacing. Color is crystal clear golden. Flavor starts lightly sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with afizzy carbonation. It finishes lightly chalky and astringent. Nice and refreshing with some unexpected depth.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2008
12 ounce bottle- poured out a crystal clear, if watery looking, yellow-gold. Aroma was straight lager; hops yeast, malt with maybe a mild strawberry(?) backer. Taste was light and crisp with just the right amount of bitterness. An excellent lager.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 Finally got to try this after hearing about it for a couple of years. It is a nice summery brew that is a little bit sweeter than most lagers, but that gives it a smoothness. Typical golden color and aroma. Similar to Kirin Ichiban.
