COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hangtime is brewed to celebrate the long days and warm nights of summer. This refreshing crystal (filtered) wheat ale has a bright golden hue and a crisp easy finish. It has a sweet malt flavor that comes from wheat malt. This light bodied ale is hopped with Brewers Gold hops. Their fruity character balances the malt sweetness and gives the beer a hint of citrus aroma and flavor. Hangtime Ale is a satisfying, easy drinking, summertime brew. Hangtime is available June to September.

I can't complain about this beer. Another excellent, well- rounded ale. Good medium body, nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Oh, how I love Full Sail.

Good gold clear color with an average head. Nice touch of hops and citrus that gives it a little bite, but still a clean and refreshing finish. A nice summer beer that has flavor.

There is really not too much too this beer. It is very simple, has a wheaty cereal malt background and not a lot of yeastiness here, has a little bit of fruit, but not picking up anything other than a small amount of floral hops.

lots of banana esthers, pale yellow with a small head, strawy then herbal hoppiness and a bready yeast finish featuring pleasant fruity hop notes, an incredibly refreshing beer but also a horrible looking one

nearly clear golden color with a small but consistent and lasting head. light clean whispy nose, light in body and beggining with a clean but lightly sweet malt but comes later with a mellow yet full boquet of hops

I am admittedly not a wheat beer fanatic, but I bit the bullet and bought a sixer of the Hangtime...and was very glad I did. Typical straw colored look with minimal head, but there is this aroma snaking through the foam that is not native wheat: citrusy hoppiness and I must say very appealing fruitiness coming from those (I'm assuming) Brewers Gold hops. Just enough malt to balance the hops while not stepping all over the crisp nature of the style. The malt suffers a tad from metallic finish, but this is the only thing I found to be actually displeasing with the beer. Not a great beer for sipping, but an excellent beer for drinking.

Good wheat aroma. This is a no frills beer with wheat flavor throughout. A good example true to style.

Mild wheat aroma with a subtle hop accent. Very clean with a semi-sweet taste and a smooth mild bitter aftertaste. Highly drinkable for the dog days of summer.

Seems like Full Sail may be moving a little towards more non-descript beers. This is still a nice brew. Citrus aroma, with a nice hop finish. Golden yellow coloring, with a medium head. Flavor is slightly hoppy, mostly balanced with malts. Mouthfeel is nice, not watery, but not overly thick. Another winner from Full Sail, but not they’re best offering.
