Longboard – Decent Lager

I love that Kona Brewing Company, having their first brewery on “The Big Island”, embraces the whole Hawaiian theme and runs with it.   Not only do they have fun “beachy” names for their beers, they have Hawiaiian translations for different words on the inside of their bottle caps… too cool!!

Although I’m not a hard-core Lager fan, I did try their Longboard Lager recently.  I was impressed with how it doesn’t have that lingering Lager aftertaste that I normally don’t care for.  Their lager is clean and refreshing and even seems to have a little more body than an average lager.

If you feel like taking a trip to an island but don’t have the cash for a vacation, simply pick up a Kona sixer and stick your toes in a sandbox! Cheers… or as your bottle cap may read:  Okole maluna!
