Hey, it's a sunny Friday afternoon, I just mowed the lawn, and I'm having...a lawnmower beer! I got some samples of Kona Longboard Lager, in 12 oz. cans, and chilled one for after the grass was cut. Poured yellow and white in my willibecker glass, smelled lightly malty, and tasted just like that. Reminded more of a Munich helles than anything else, maybe a bit lighter in body, but with that nice malty dryness. Very easy to drink indeed.
