Kona Longboard Island Lager

This 4.6% ABV lager is from the Kona Brewing Company of Kona, Hawaii (although now brewed on the mainland as they are part of the Craft Brew Alliance). I like the bottle design, and the glass on top is embossed with the shape of the Hawaiian Islands and the words "Liquid Aloha."

The beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow in color. There is an inch of pure white foam. The aroma is slightly sweet, golden grain, floral and grassy. The taste follows the aromas, adding in toasted grain, along with aromatic floral/fruit, and finishing with a grassy bitterness. It is moderately bitter and drinks very crisp and refreshing. This is one very enjoyable lager!
