Longboard Island Lager (Kona)

Everyone needs a good lager once in a while. I'm sure a lot of finger wagging is going on right now, but it's true. Your beer palate needs a little rest every so often.

Longboard Island Lager (Kona) = 3/10

Nothing really to see here. It's a premium style lager, so anyone can predict the flavours off by heart. The glass smells of straw, water, lemons and the barest of honey. A light to medium mouthfeel serves up a crisp superfecta of straw, apple, spicy and earthy hops. Only a mid-grade linger of straw and honey remains. It's an above average lager.

Not a huge lager fan but this one hits the spot! Very light beer. Good but faint aroma. Smooth and crisp. A good one for sure. Paul Morris

It was a solid lager, just not super exciting
