A classic German-Style Beer, Brewed in San Diego. Our Longfin Lager has become one of the go-to beers with the team at the brewery. A solidly balanced Helles inspired Lager with a clean, slightly hoppy finish that could easily fit in at any German beer garden. We think its perfect for enjoying on the beach, the boat or anywhere else you can put an ice chest full of beer.

Bartzilla's rating

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
I get this in 6 pack cans. Nothing glamorous here. Its an easy drinking lager and I just had one right after a Tecate. Marginally better. Though I wasnt expecting to be blown out of the water either. Id only suggest dumbing down the price of a 6er a little, especially if this is the intended nature of this beer. Dont get me wrong, not a bad beer for a standard lager, but for $10.99 a 6 pack, I was hoping for something notable to write about. Doesnt get me shit-housed like Big Eye, so thats a plus. Still $4 cheaper than a 6 of Sculpin, so thats good too. One little thing that irks me, however... the cans are packed so tight that its impossible to crack one open, even as slow as possible, without it spraying globules of beer over everything in an 8-12" diameter. I like the beer and I love LOVE Ballast Point beers, but I cant return to this on the regular.

oobawa (1102) - Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2017
Lemon and yeast nose, mild and inoffensive to the Bud-Miller set, I guess. Looks a bit weak--or macro--for a lager, pale yellow with a fleeting head and teensy-weensy flecks of lace. Taste is bready malt coupled with lemon-apple esters and a very mild tart finish. bright and yellow and weak, hops nearly undetectable on the back end. Fade is doughy and underwhelming--like me in high school! Come on, Ballast Point. Just because youre technically a macro brewery now doesnt mean you have to start brewing macro swill. (I know, I know, they still brew plenty of solid beers. Weak lagers just annoy me.)

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 3, 2017
355ml bottle shared by djoeye. Pale yellow body, misty. Dissipating snow white head. Fragile lacing. Rather vague grainy aroma. Restrained taste profile of bread, pears and lemony hints. Mild and semi-sweet grainy ending. Soft in the mouth. Easy going. (Troms 02.04.2017).

Straw with a slight haze. Aroma of malt, wheat, and grains. Taste of grains with slight hop spice. Hints of wheat. Aftertaste lingers. Mouthfeel is heavier than I'd like. *12 oz can into pint glass

Pics a clear gold color. Aroma is of malts, slight Aluminum, dust, and a little citrus. Light and bubbly palate. Flavor is the same. Very light and blah.
