In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Kona Brewing Company Longboard Island Lager

Aroma: Light, bready malt overlayed with spicy, slightly resinous hops. Light lager sulfur presence. Lemony hops and slight corn sweetness.

Flavor: Crisp, light, and refreshing, the spicy, grassy hop flavor really fills the middle of the palate and the aftertaste with a tart touch of lemon. Crisp, clean finish with mild bitterness and very light alcohol. A little thin but enjoyable.

Overall: A fun times lager! Light, clean, and refreshing, this beer showcases an assertive hop flavor relative to the light malt backbone. Very refreshing and easy to drink for those looking for drinkability over complexity.
