This beer falls short in many aspects, like dating Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan. If you go to a bar and there is no other women available, then try this one , otherwise look around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The appearance has a clear pale yellow color with a rapidly fading white head, and the aroma blends yeast, wheat, orange peel, and a hint of honey. The taste is slightly sour and a touch sweet, but the yeasty aftertaste sets in quickly; the mouthfeel mixes an average carbonation, medium-light body, a thin texture, and an abrupt finish.

From bottle, called summer honey wheat now. Light amber color. Some sweetness. Not to bad for drinking out in the sun

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a golden colored body with a large foamy head with speckled lacing sliding down the sides of the glass. There was barely any carbonation seen rising. The smell had some honey and lemon with some wheat and orange in the background. The taste was mainly the wheat with the lemon and the orange in the background. There were some light malts that were in the background as well. There was a very faint taste of hops at the end. On the palate, it sat about a light with a semi-refreshing quality. This was mainly a drinkable beer. Overall, this is a decent brew. I was mostly impressed by the appearance but other than that, this is an American Pale Wheat Ale, as far as I know. I might have it again .... maybe.

Fantastic - wish they would bring it back into production. Tasty, nice flavor - love the fact it is strongly citrus. Great on the boat & in the bar - would love it year round.

The first thing you notice about this summer ale is the lack of head. Not much forms while pouring and whatever suds you manage to get will quickly dissipate before your eyes. Right away, then, you have the telltale sign of a beer with too much citrus to be properly balanced. That problem shows up in the flavor, too. Luckily, the honey character helps to cut through some of the overly strong citrus element. Still, it’s far from being a good beer.
