Really needed something refreshing tonight and saw this. Hopefully it is somewhat good.
Pours with a bright 3 finger white head, and a light pale yellow. Good for the style.
Semll is grainy, with some kisses of hops. Typical astingency of an American light lager.
Taste is very malty and bready, with some metallic character, surprisingly heavier than expected but it is pretty light bodied despite that. Hops are there, they are very medicinal and earthy with a tiny pinch of pine.
It just wasn’t refreshing enough to be something worth purchasing perhaps it is the sweetness or not enough carbonation. The hops are tasty but they cold be stronger and have this more pilsener-like.
Overall is is better than a lot of American light lagers, but like most it "pales" in comparison to its European brethren. theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Light malty aroma. Appearance was golden like a light lager should be. Taste was fairly malty. Sweetness and some fruitiness present. Palate was medium-. Not as dry as expected but still crisp. Overall I like this beer. Nice drinker and a quality American made lager. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 10, 2011
This is a typical, well-done craft lager. Nothing to surprise here. Big carbonation. Grain taste is predominant but no sweetness. Fairly dry. Pours a deep yellow with minimial aroma. Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Longboard is refreshingly smooth bodied with a golden yellow appearance. The center flavor hovers around a light hoppy taste followed by a hint of lager yeast. woodychevy (874) - - FEB 3, 2011
I had not had this beer for a couple of years and remember it being much better. Really nothing of interest here- no flavor profiles jumped out at me. Was super light and very carbonated. Might as well not have been drinking craft beer. Might put some on ice for my next cookout in the heat of the summer, but that is the only way I would drink it.

Tap. Pour is rich golden color with a small white head. Aroma is light malt, light hop, and faint spice. Flavor is very classic lager with light cookie malt and faint floral hops. Full bodied for style and very tasty. lightly grassy and tart in finish. ThaJuggernaut (309) - Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Good beer. Has a nice lager taste with good head. Pours great and has a good aroma to it. Metalchopz (3534) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2011
Originally rated June 2010. Purchased a 6-pack of this on my way to Lynchburg (from Nashville). My first Hawaii brew (never thought I would have one). Pours a pale golden colour with a decent white frothy head and nice weblike lacing. Tiny bubble carbonation with a beautiful nose of spices (mostly from the hop they use). Also, aromas of biscuit malt and bread. Smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel with a little stickiness. Nicely balanced taste with the cereal malt and the spicy malt. Not super powerful (as this is a beer for warm weather) but quite surprising to have all that scent and flavour in just a plain lager from a State that is not known to brew beer. thetmaxx (927) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 25, 2011
From a bottle (16:40 Oregon Brewery, DEC 02 10) Poured into a lager style glass. Color is very light, with a white head, and carbonation can be viewed. Lacing along the side of the glass. Aroma is yeasty, like dough. Flavor is also that of yeast and malt, very plain. This is a very smooth and light beer, average carbonation, and finishes abruptly. Overall not a bad beer to enjoy during the summer. Cold right out of the bottle masks aroma and flavor making it a little smoother and easier to drink. roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Great beer! Didn’t have high hopes coming from a Hawaiian beer but surprisingly a great beer!
