This is one of the first breweries I tried in the Atlanta area so I'm particularly loyal to this place. That being said, Long Day has been one of my favorite beers. It goes down easy and tastes great. Def better on tap but most beers are for that matter.

Red Hare Long Day lager is one of the best lagers I have tasted since moving her from Europe twenty years ago.
Before you drink it savor the great lager smell. I took me back to my early years of drinking beer in Europe.

At almost 5% it gives you a nice kick while still tasting fresh and like a real lager. Definitely the best lager in the Southeast of the USA. Great that I can now buy it at retail in a can, even the Atlanta Krogers are carrying it now.
I heard that Red Hare micro brewery is going to sell their Gangway IPA in cans pretty soon as well.

Had this on draft quite a few times but never reviewed it... Was released in cans yesterday and I got one of the first 6 packs only 2 place in GA got it in yesterday :) Pours a clear golden color, foamy white head. Doesn't stick around a long time but what do you expect from a lager? Taste is slightly sweet, biscuit, some hop bitterness on the back of the tongue... could easily drink all I have in the fridge tonight if I didn't work tomorrow lol Just a great beer from a brewery right down the street from me. Overall great beer and if you live in the Marietta, GA area be sure to stop by for a tour there over the weekend.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of grass, maybe some lemon zest, hops and yeast. The taste was a nice grass flavored beer with mild hops in the back.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey golden with a thin off-white head - but the latter may be an artifact of the pour. The bartenders at Summits like to make sure you get maximum beer. It is darker than most lagers I have sampled, a good sign. As it turns out, the head does leave some decent lacing. Malty, fruity aroma has apple and cherry notes and a hint of hops, unusual for a lager in my experience. Malty and surprisingly hoppy flavor has a fruity tone and subtle hop bitterness. Smooth, firm-bodied, fizzy, edgy texture leaves a malty and rather hoppy finish, somewhat more like an IPA than a lager. I’ve had plenty of lagers, and this is one of the best, if not the best!

This is solid. Not as bitter as many Pilsners and seems to be more a more refined lager
