Another from the Kona Brewing Co. in Hawaii, this is a refreshing solid lager beer. Mahalo.

From what I know about longboard surfing, it takes a lot more time to learn, but the ride is a lot smoother than the boogie board generation gets. Same for this mini-masterpiece from Kona.

Just the facts:

Bottle temp at opening: 38 degrees.

Drinking temp: 38 degrees

Nose: A lager never tells.

Taste:  Dig in to this sandy bit of sunshine.

Rating: 5 bottles out of 6

This is a smooth lager that isn't trying to beat you over the head with hops or mysterious ingredients.  This is straight-up full flavored beer, maybe with a hint, a HINT of sweet.  But the malt and barley are perfectly combined, like the cool fall day and natural fireplace crackling in the reflection of the glass.

I will drink this 'til I'm done.
