Brew Review: Longboard Island Lager

Longboard Island Lager (Kona Brewing Co.)
Appearance (0 to 4 stars): 3.5
Aroma: 2.5
Flavor: 2.5
Texture: 3.0
Drinkability: 2.5

Overall score: 14.0 / 20.0

Cost: $3
On the label: "Hang loose with a refreshing Longboard Island Lager. It's a spirited beer with a light sand-washed color. Thirst's Up! It's a smooth crisp ride all the way in."
"Since 1994, Kona Brewing has been been committed to making handcrafted brews of uncompromised quality. We invite you to visit our brewery and Pubs whenever you are in Hawaii. Mahalo!"
Summary: Disappointing, to say the least. Aftertaste of a tangy, though tart brew. Would go great with spicy food on a sweltering, muggy day. However, it is 2:30 a.m. and I am eating nishime with this brew. I liked Kona Brewing Co.'s special coffee beer. This one, though, is a bit of a klunker.
