I poured this beer into my tulip glass. There was almost no foam on the lager. The coloring was really light yellow (like the BMC stuff).

Off the top I smell a pretty decent amount of funkiness. This definitely smells like cat pee.

The flavor was pretty bland. There wasn't much going on there. I could see drinking this in Hawaii... actually I could see myself drinking any beer in Hawaii.

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear, pale gold in color, with a rather short head of bright white foam.
Aroma-Pale malt
Taste-Pale malts, grain, faint apple skin. Very crisp and refreshing. A nice lager that would appeal to the masses at a backyard barbecue.

I've enjoyed this beer while spending time in Hawaii. Coming back to review this brew. On tap at the crows nest in Santa Cruz. Served in a pint glass without head this pale yellow beer is clear and pretty bland looking. Aromas are clean pils malt with the slightest hint of spicy hops. More flavor than u would expect as this beer is heavier on the hops than your standard lager. Otherwise clean and crisp with just a hint of a bitter lingering finish. Easy to drink with a little character. A solid brew meant for sunshine. Easilly light struck be careful to keep in the shade.

I had seen this beer around quite a bit but being on a budget i never bought it. I had a yard sale and someone gave me cash and a case of Longboard as a payment. I figured it was a fair trade! I was very happy with the taste right away. I poured it into a pint glass and the color and smell were very good. I would definitely have this again.
