Longboard Island Lager brewed by Kona Brewing Co with an ABV of 4.6% This brew pours out a nice clear amber color with a smell white head. The smell is rich with grains and malt. You pick up on some of the sweetness in this brew. The taste is bold with flavor and grains. This brew has a nice balance too it. there is nothing over powering in this brew. I like how this brew has flavor and it goes down smooth. The mouthfeel is n ice also. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5. I will get this brew again.

Longboard Island Lager - Kona Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 3 finger thick head, golden transparent body, and not very much lacing.

I can smell a little bit of hoppiness. Not a whole lot of malt characteristics are present here.

Tastes like very lighy roasted malts, which I like. Hop bitterness is an aftertaste, but it sure is there. Not too overpowering, though. Just enough to get the job done.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Nothing lingers with this brew.

Overall a very solid 4 for Longboard Island Lager - Kona Brewing Co. It was 86 with over 50% humidity today here in my neck of the woods in Ohio, and this sure hit the spot. I'll probably buy this brew again.

Very, very smooth beer and very drinkable on a hot day or night. I generally loathe lighter beers but this is very enjoyable while being totally boring and bland at the same time. But I can get it for the same price as bud / bud light at a local bar and it is infinitely more enjoyable.

Pretty decent beer. Pours a golden yellow with a slight white head that stays for a little bit before dissipating. Smell is sweet and malty with a hint of tropical fruit. Taste is crisp, good amount of carbonation. Nothing extraordinary, but solid beer for a hot day.
