A fine beerwith a rich taste. Nice coloring and scent are the first good signs. The taste is crisp and clean with a wonderful wheat body. Good stuff wheat beer rocks!

I don't consider this the "traditional" summer brew. Most are fairly light. This left me feeling more full than anything. That aside, this was very good. Thick white head with a golden color. As is the case with other summer beers, I noticed a somewhat citrusy flavor with this. Very good.

Can (6-pack), Exxon gas station, Hoover, Alabama.
A nice, refreshing beer with a little more hops than most summer-wheat style beers, but not too biting on the palate.
I’d like to apply a quote from Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow here -
"Oh, this beer here is cold, cold and hop-bitter, no point in coming up for air, gulp, til it’s all-hahhh."

Huge White billoughy head. Great Flavor. Served at the perfect temperature. I really really like this. Not a bit o bitter. I’m very pleasantly suprised. Anchor makes a very fine product.

I loved this brew. Poured a golden straw color with an unbelivably creamy white head. Was very refreshing and had a hint of nutmeg in the aftertaste. Maybe a secret ingredient or maybe just too much insence burning?

Anchor Brewing is well known for outstanding beers and the Summer Beer doesn’t disappoint. from its sem-cloudy golden appearance to its awesome clean aroma, it is another winner for them.
The taste is sooth with an overwhelming drinkability. lightly carbonated and pours with a small head. this is a must try if Anchor products are available in your neighborhood.

Enjoyed this one on draught at the brewery in San Francisco, back in July 06. The brewery tour was tremendous, and this was the first beer we sampled after the tour. I’ve had this beer a few times in bottle, but this was the first time I had it very fresh on draught, and its was excellent. An American wheat beer by style, this is a tart, refreshing, thirst quenching brew, with good wheat malt character. Anchor Summer Beer pours to a beautiful, bright, pale gold color, with a nice white head, and a good carbonation. The nose is very nice, with some good citrus aroma, paired with some "grainy" wheat malt aroma. The palate is very crisp, with lots of good tart, and grainy wheat malt flavor. This beer finishes with more good tart wheat malt up front, then ends with a touch of citrus, hop bitterness. A very drinkable wheat beer, perfect for warm weather, and a beer you could pound with impunity.

Has a big, puffy white head atop a hazy yellow liquid. Lots of tiny bubbles. Looks like a nice witbier. Lace is not bad.
Has the wheaty smell of a Belgian white, but absent the usual spicy Belgian aroma. The wheat and some light yeast give a nice, dry scent.
The taste is a blast of citrusy fruit right off the bat. Lemony and a little sour; like lemonade. Very very tart. Has a nice balanced undercurrent. Dryness takes the pucker out of the citrus.
The feel is watery and sour, like a lemon-drop. It’s a really sour, puckery summer brew. Really refreshing and nice.
