3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Bottle. The pour was a murky medium yellow with some light brown highlights and a small creamy white head that reduced down to just a few small puddles that clung to the glass leaving behind some fair lacing.
The aroma had a slight funkiness to it along with a mild grain malt, a floral hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus and a mild peppery spice.
The taste was refreshingly yeasty and a bit funky with notes of citrus and caramel in the beginning and then became a bit malty and slightly bitter with a hint of spice at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a strong yeasty, citrus flavor that faded slowly leaving behind remnants of a peppery spice.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and an almost fizzy carbonation.
Overall a nice mildly bold yeasty brew with a good mix of flavors creating this yeasty, spicy, citrusy beer that is rather tasty...

Very simple mild beer. Easy light summer drinking but nothing really unique or special.

Can. Decent overall beer. Average carbonation. Average hop and malt flavor. Clean finish. No outstanding qualities, but no off flavors either.

Bottle: It poured a golden color with a thin white head. The aroma was grainy with some spicy hops. The taste had some light fruit in it. It was enjoyable to drink.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden with a small white head. The aroma was grainy. The taste was crisp, bready, and some honey sweetness. It was good cold as a summer beer. As it warmed up, it wasn’t as enjoyable.

On tap at MusselBar. Okay. A bit bland really. Watery nose and weak forgetful taste. Happy trails.

Flying Fish Farmhouse Summer Ale is ok but nothing to rave about. Slight lemony aroma coming from a bright yellow pour. Head fizzes a bit on the pour but quickly dissipates to nothing. Taste is a little funky and somewhat lemony making it refreshing but kind of thin. Farmhouse Summer Ale seems to have some execution problems -- could definitely be better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Undated 12oz bottle; sample courtesy of Perry County Beer. Pours yellow gold, very small head that dissipates into a ring. Tulip glass gives an earthy, grassy, lightly spiced, Belgium-y aroma. The body is light and refreshing. The bitter chewy wheat fore-taste quickly balances with obviously dry Belgium yeast aftertaste. The taste is certainly muted for it’s 4.6abv, but that’s the charm to this very drinkable summery outdoorsy light farmhouse ale.
