1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours straw-colored. No head. Aromas are almost nonexistent; perhaps a hint of cut grass. No hop aroma. The taste is surprisingly flat and ordinary for a Breckenridge product, like a typical macrobrew. Slight lemony aftertaste; otherwise, very dry finish. Overall, very disappointing and ordinary. There are many, many better summer ales out there.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle. Light beer all around with some mild fruit notes. Body is weak but not overly thin, decent aroma. Option for drinking eight from can on a hot day.

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.

This one poured a semi cloudy dull yellow with a white head. Aroma was of light cracked wheat and pale malt. Flavor similar, pretty bland but nothing offputting.

Drank from can so appearance isn’t perfect, but appears to be light gold. Aroma - mild biscuit and hop notes, slightly grassy. Taste is slightly hoppy and malty, very smooth, refreshing. Good on a hot summer day.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very pale straw yellow color with white head. Raw wheat is the dominant note on the nose; follows onto the palate. A pretty simple beer, but nice and light for hot days.
