Picked up a single from Total Wine in early July for $1.99. Received at TW on 4/1/14 so likely it was canned within 6 weeks.

Beer poured straw with a nice head upon the initial pour.

Nose is grainy and surprisingly fresh.

Taste is a nice balance between the malts and hops. Finish is clean with a nice hop flavor.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. FInish is refreshing.

Overall Ballast Point nailed this pretty well. Would love to try one that is fresh.

12 oz. brown bottle into a Foothills glass.
No BB date found.
Bottle states 4.5% ABV.
A: Clear straw color with the slightest haze. Half finger of loose head. Good lacing but it does not last and goes down to only a small collar around the glass.

S: Tart herbs and dough, mostly.

T: Crackers/doughy malt flavors with a tart herbal hop flavor finding its way through later, along with a bit of a sweetish roundness as the beer warms. Crisp, clean and bitter. Quite good.

M: A bit on the stiff side of light. A good amount of bubble tingle on the tongue. Minimal hops stickiness, a bit wet maybe and very clean. Maybe this beer's best quality.

O: Had high hopes for Longfin but found it good though hardly great. I appreciate everything about this lager, including its low ABV. It all says "quality" but nothing was found truly exceptional. A good brew but stupid expensive. At $12/6, I've likely had my last B.P. Longfin.
