I'm committing a cardinal BA sin and reviewing this from memory. I drank it in Hawaii and didn't feel like taking my eyes off of the scenery and swarm of international tourists surrounding me to jot notes on a bev nap.

However of all the Hawaiian beer of which I partook, I think this was the best. Lagers often get bashed on this site, but a good one can be as pleasurable as any quality beer can be. The Longboard was one of the best lagers I've had in a long time: Crisp, well-balanced, with a perfect spike of hops.

It one considers it to be a tropical island session beer, it's nearly perfect. Aloha.
