Has the perfect lager smell. Drinks pretty smooth.

Pours pale light in color. Some bubbles.

Grains are abundant in the nose. Very much like a normal pale lager. Seems adjunct free.

Light bodied feel. Lager like refreshing taste. Very light and moderate carbonation.

Pours a clear golden with a good head. Very good lacing and retention. Light nose of slightly sweet biscuit over subtle notes of tropical hops. Very nice medium body for a lager with a touch of creamy texture. Above average carbonation level that imparts a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and also clean and crisp. It begins with a light biscuit sweetness that flows into a crisp effervescent light bitterness. Behind the bitterness is a light tropical tartness from the hops. The finish is crisp and effervesces into a slight dryness.

I love this beer but cannot get this to pour with a nice head. The head is very thin and gone way too quickly. If it had a better head it would improve its rating.

If anyone out there has found a way to pour this beer and generate a good, long lasting head I would love to hear about it.

I'm glad that I was introduced to Longboard and can get it 5,000 miles from its source.
