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


Ballast Point Longfin Lager

Aroma: “A nice spring day on Marienplatz in Munich. Starts with a whiff of sulfur aroma and moves into light bready Pilsner malt and restrained spicy German hops (herbaceous, floral), and light white grape–juice notes.”

Flavor: “Grainy but still crisp and fairly dry. Emphasis on hops is slightly pronounced. Slightly bitter. Nice bread and light Pilsner malt flavor. Medium-light mouthfeel.”

Overall: “The nose is perfect. Nice malty flavor. A little dry and bitter for the style but very drinkable. Quite enjoyable and broadly in the helles style.”
