3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at brewpub. I kind of just refused to buy 6 packs of this for the price of their regular offerings. However, a free taster is fine enough and even worth rating. But overall this was actually a surprisingly decent brew. Color is dark yellow and completely lucid. A lightly sweet corn with mostly a refreshing maltiness, canít really describe it any better. I donít taste any lemon as the deScription says but it was definitely a crisp maltiness. Taste is a refreshing slightly estery maltiness peppered with light biscuit. A bunch of breweries make a light or lawnmower or summer beer but this is actually a decent one. Thirst quenching and recommended for that.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Dís in Regent Square, Swissvale. Basic pale yellow american lager color and appearance but I think it is just a little hazy. Smell is a little hoppy and with some fruit. Taste is as hoppy as it smells, kind of surprising for a golden ale. Barely leaves any hop bitterness on the palate at first but it is definately hoppy. Cannot detect much citrus except for the citrus rind taste. Medium low carbonation. Bitterness on the back of the throat builds to a medium lasting linger that hangs for a while after the session. A little too much hops for me in a blonde ale. Northen Country Northern Lite is much better than this as a golden ale.

This beer is a lighter stylke beer but the nose does show some decent notes of citrus. The hops cotribute to the citrus and the wheat added makes it somewhat complex. It drinks very smooth and light.

correct me...we are talking about a summer ale here right? well, just like everything else they make they did a good job! this beer has good body developed and exhibited in a quality way it has a hop taste and aroma albeit light and a tasty summer flavor that is not strong and perfect for hot summer days. you can drink a few and enjoy yourself. this is a beer snobís summer ale.enjoy!

12 oz bottle. Poured an orange body with a strange smell. Long island? The taste was dry and a bit hoppy. Didnt really taste the citrus in it all that much.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(12 oz bottle) this one reminds me of a kolsh. a dry palate with a moderate bitter and a slight citrus. moderate carobation. a crisp refreshing brew for a hot summer day. i think these ratings are a bit low. its not a complex brew but the flavor is distinct and quite enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a drain pour but just a very bland and unintresting beer. something I will most likely avoid in the future.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 (bottle - 12 oz) Clear golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma has a light citrus and hop mix. Some wheat as well. Flavor is light and pretty simple. Some light fruitiness with some light hops. Bitterness is apparent in the middle with a very clean and watery finish. Easy to drink a lot of these.
