t - bready, lemon, grassy with some floral sweetness in there.
m - slick and medium.
o - very good lager and has a lot going on for the style. damn good lawnmower beer.

Poured one and a half cans into a 1/2 liter stein,poured a light lemon tinged dull golden with a nice fluffy one finger bone white crown that left a nice full ring of lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Aromas are grainy with a tinge of iron and straw.Grassy and mild lemony notes on the palate with a dryer more crsip malt base,a decent toasted shot in the finish.Not anything earth shattering but not looking for that today,just lookin for an after work patio beer.

3.71/5  rDev +4.8%

A - slightly hazy, pale golden lager topped with a frothy white head
S - yeast, grass, must, grain
T - sweet & delicate, grass, a touch spicy, nutty, German
M - thin-medium with higher carbonation making it feel fuller
O - very good example of the style. I'd pick this up again if the price is right. Easy to drink, good flavors, well done.

Ballast Point Brewing Longfin Lager

A- Pale straw color- I think it’s clear, but it appears cloudy because of temperature. There was some head, but it quickly dissipated.

S- My biggest pet peeve of lagers across the board “it smells like beer,” meaning there is no distinctive or discerning smell. It just smells like cheap boozy Budweiser. Right now I’m beginning to wonder if maybe this sample was old. I looked for a date, but didn’t see one. This just does not seem like something from Ballast Point, usually they’re amazing.

T- So disappointed in this taste. It tastes like high end Budweiser, just as it smelled. Crisp, light, refreshing, sure. But boring. Not bad, just boring. I keep looking for anything to make it unique or special, but nothing. So luckily, tonight I’m taking home one of their new cans of the Longfin, hopefully I am proven wrong and my sample was just old. I promise to re-review this beer because I love the brewery so much. They definitely need another shot.
