This beer is a pale gold/yellow color and is mildly bubbly. Thin off-white head that did not last. The aroma is wheaty and vaguely spiced. Light and crisp with a nice hops presence along with more spice and a little citrus. The finish is a little on the sweet side but has a small hops bite to it. Kudos to Flying Fish for actually making a Summer Ale with some flavor other than lemon.

Sparkling clear, very light, straw-colored beer. The quickly disappearing head leaves fair lacework.
A mild brew in both aroma and flavor. A touch buttery with hints of butterscotch and grass. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation.
Call it a Saison if you like, but to me it tastes and feels like any other mild British style brew. Absolutely not spectacular. Refreshing, though. Brewed to be enjoyed during the hot Summer months.

Minimal aroma, small head. Good color. Stays bitter the whole time. Overall a mild beer.

Light brown to off-white in color. Wheat is noticable both in flavor and aroma. Kind of thin and not a very good finish, no real flavor.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale straw lored with a nose of pear. Not stellar. Slight, slight banana. Some grass. Sorta "kolsch"-ish and that is nod good for this style. Lacks any spice.

Somebody wrote that this beer tasted similar to Heineken - I agree, but I think it is on the south side of Heineken. Not terrible, but I dove head first into a barrel for my Fountain of Life and regreted it. A case of it would have been nice, but a barrel - hoy!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty, fruity and slightly herbal. Touch of must. A medium bodied sassion (? ) Malts are fruity and mild. Hops are slightly spicy. Light and refreshing. Nice mild flavors. Well balanced. Light and refreshing this would make a great summer session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Pale gold, with a very white head, with a flowery aroma and flavor with background bittering, and unfortunately, a good amount of Diacetyl.

More hops than I was expecting (which is a good thing). Nice refreshing beer. I wouldn't buy it regularly but it's all they had at the tiki bar at the pool I was at. It did it's job.
