Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Longfin Lager has become one of the go-to beers with the team at the brewery. A solidly balanced Helles that finishes clean with a hint of hops, it would easily fit in at any German beer garden. But we think it’s perfect for enjoying on the beach, the boat or anywhere else you can put an ice chest full of beer.

On tap. Poured a clear, golden yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of floral notes, caramel and bread. Sweet caramel taste with a mild bitterness.

Poured from 12 Oz bottle into pilsner glass. Poured a clear straw color with fluffy cream colored head that dissipated to ring. Almost champagne in appearance with the continously rising bubbles. Hints of grass hops and sweet bread malt on the nose. Taste followed aroma. Light to medium body, smooth with a bit of dry finish. A good breweries and I could easy see myself sipping on the beach or boat as advertised.

A – Straw colored, clear, poured from standard 12 oz can into standard pint glass. No head. No lacing.

S – Faint. Muted Hops. Cereal. Bread.

T – Mediocre at best. Typical macro lager flavored with a dash of extra hops.

M – Mediocre.

D – It’s just a standard lager with extra hops. You could session this one as it is 4.5% abv but the price point is a major con. I didn't really like this one and I definitely won’t buy it again. Truthfully, it was almost a drain pour but I can't do that to a beer this costly.

Quite a light beer, not that much to it. Not as comparable to a true German hell that it doesn't have that much of the associated fresh cut grass of the noble hop or the malt back.

12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is short and semi-dry. Good brew.

This beer sounded good going into the glass, it had a Fizz like a Coca-Cola. The bubbly head dissipated to nothing pretty quick and the beer is a very pale yellow not much to look at. It has a pleasant lemony smell and a light thirst-quenching taste. A good Light beer, I'd buy it again.

Pours a clear gold with a 1.5 finger white head. Smells of malt and mild mild hops. Tastes of malt and some bread. Very nice medium creamy body with medium carbonation. Overall it's a tasty lager that I would drink again based on the cheap price.

Golden and cloudy and dainty and pretty. Also, the head doesn't last at all. Nose is mild and malty and grassy but not irregular.

Taste is bread and biscuit notes everywhere, with minor pushback from noble hops. A little watery in texture but fits the style. Not unpleasant at all. Solid summer barbecue stuff.
