Surprisingly tasty, smooth, clean, crisp lager. Nice golden color, small amount of head. Clean notes of malt and grain, fainter hints of fruit. Clean finish without much mouthfeel, carbonation lightens as drink warms. Nice easy beer to drink and will definitely quench the thirst.

Wow. Great surprise. Did not expect the taste, especially since it has a lower ABV than I am used to. Would definately try this one again. Wish I had more than this one bottle.

Served on tap into a 16 oz (473 ml) conical pint glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear, golden color with a one quarter inch, white head with virtually no retention nor lacing.
S: Aromas of grasses and grain with a cherrywood note.
T: Dry. Pale malt and grainy flavors again with a cherry note, like the nose. Crisp and refreshing.
M: Light bodied with light, champagne bubble carbonation.
O: This is a refreshing, thirst quencher. A nice example of that end of the style.

Smooth and unique but not enough taste or smell. Good session beer. True lager taste.

Crystal clear golden typical lager color. Thin head. Faint aroma also understandably lager-like. First taste is crisp with a spicy hint but a smidge thin. Pleasant drinker. Would not, however, go out of my way to buy it again.

Such an underrated session beer. Super easy to drink and tasty despite being light. It’s easy to over-complicate a beer - much harder to make something simple and easy and Kona more than hits that mark with Longboard. This beer will always be one of my favorites. Goes great with just about anything.
