Can into a glass. Pours hazy gold, no real head. Aroma is light citrus, grass, spice, a bit of white bread and butter. Taste is thick and heavy (not great for a summer beer) with a slightly sticky sweet citrusy mouthfeel, like cheap orange juice.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with minimal head. Aroma of grains, light wheat, and a little skunk. Taste is light bitter. Follows aroma with the addition of some light herbal hops. Meh, even for a summer seasonal it’s not that good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bad label, standard 12oz longneck. Clear, light gold beer, fluffy white head that collapses down to a layer of oatmeal consistency. Biscuity malts, west coast hop aroma. A little tang up front, followed by hops, then the dryish malting and mineral notes. Unpretentious, definitely meets the brewmasters goal for quaffability. Quick finish. Like I said in my article on summer beers a long time ago - the ideal summer beer doesn’t try to knock one over the fence, but instead is looking for a bunt single in the hot weather. I’m actually bumping this up a little over its probable deserved rating to reflect the achievement of the goal of a congenial summer brew. ABC, Bull Run.

Transfer from BA review on 5-20-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed orange yellow color with a big billowy white head. The head fades quite fast to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – Aromas of wheat and yeast are the most heavy. There are aromas of some lighter citrus mixed within. Lemon and a very light grapefruit.
Taste – A very light wheat flavor greets the tongue. This is mixed with a little bit of lemon citrus. As the flavor advances some lighter flavors of yeast and spice come to the tongue. These take to the taste to the end leaving a semi-sweet citrus wheat flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The brew is light in body and higher in carbonation. Very fitting for the style. The bubbles excite while the body makes it very easy to drink.
Overall – A nice light god session beer for the summer months. It is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying in the presence of friends over a long evening. If looking for something intensely flavorful however this is a beer to avoid.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with a wheaty and fruity character with sweet malt and slight hops in the background. The finish is clean and relatively flavorless aside from some cereal malt and wheat. Below average overall.
