look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Purchased 6-pack at BevMo for $7.99 and poured into a pils glass. Has a clear light gold color, moderate level of carbonation, and a foamy white head that displayed good retention and left streaks of lace on the walls of the glass.
Nose is full of sweet malts with a modest undercurrent of floral hops.
Taste is predominently that of pale grains and a fruity sweetness before a soft lingering taste of herbal hops in the finish. Not bad.
Feel was medium- to light-bodied, a tad slick but refreshing.
Drinkability is right up there as a decent summertime refresher. As the days get warmer, I can envision Longboard being a convenient kick-back-and-relax session brew.
