Got to give credit - lacing. It's got it, and not so bad a head either. The color is basic lager. Same goes for the smell. Faint grainy malt. This isn't winning points for the aroma. The taste is all you could hope for though... clean, easy on the palate, refreshing. You of course want to serve this cold, but it won't be awful at below freezing temperatures either. This is a well-made lager that feels great on the tongue in hot weather. I'm a fan.

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.
