can from Utah state liquor store Park City. pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves a ton of lacing. a slight spice note on the nose. Definite honey on the tongue but it fades quickly. finishes clean. Itís not the most exciting beer from big sky but itís competently made.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, spice. I thought this was so so. I would skip next time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit of orange peel and white pepper. Bit of hops in the finish. Clear and clean tasting.

I never expect too much from "summer" ales as they tend to just be bland blonds w/o much going on but this one is pretty great. It is a light golden brew w/ a mild floral character and a kiss of citrus from coriander. This is rather on the dry side and light to medium bodied but comes off w/ just a touch of sweetness because it is not all that bitter. Brisk carbonation contributes to a light mouthfeel and easy drinkability. This is one that will definitely hit the spot on a nice summer day.

Somewhat cloudy gold/orange appearance. Head starts out finger-length, but disappears rapidly. Sporadic lacing. Aroma of honey and earth. Flavor follows suit. Having this after a workout at the gym, and itís hitting the spot. Nice mild summer brew that does what itís supposed to do - not wow you, but fit the context of a hot weather or post-workout thirst quencher that still has some flavor. Certainly a better choice than the typical macro pale lager.

bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear pale amber with a bubbly white head and heavy stripes of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with carbonation and mild bittering coming along in the palate, then fading quickly in a short finish. Modest and unassuming, not a lot there, but agreeable enough.

Surprised by low ratings. This is a very nice, very smooth, very flavorful brew. Better than its ABV would suggest. Recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Dan's Tavern. Clear gold with a white head. Sweet honey and clean. Turns grainy and Cheerio flavored at the end.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 Bottle pour. Pours golden with a sweet, bready aroma. Flavor is a lot of sweet caramel and bread. Wheat flavors throughout. Very light beer, and all flavor is really mild. Very easy drinking, and fitting for the nice weather, but expected a little more from this one. Not bad. Iíd drink it again. Update: I did drink again. Much better experience on draft at the collective. Pretty good.
