Longboard Island Lager is a smooth refreshing lager fermented and aged for five weeks at cold temperatures to yield its exceptionally smooth flavor. A delicate, slightly spicy hop aroma complements the malty body of this beer.

Sampling right now on 2/5/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Brew pours clear straw-yellow in color with about a 1-finger foamy/fizzy white head that quickly settles down to just along the sides of the glass. A decent amount of sticky lacing is seen which is surprising. The aroma is hard to describe actually. Mostly of grains with maybe a hint of spice(?). The taste is pretty much like a lager would be but better than a Bud or other similar brews. Goes down easy with no bitterness. Lighter to medium bodied with good carbonation, hence all the bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass after the pour. Overall it wasn't that bad actually.

Looks and tastes like Budweiser. 3 bucks a 22 for bud is bad. Skip unless you are a pale lager guy. This just screams macro although it's craft.
