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.

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.

bottle-I had very low expectations going into this brew, but i seemed to think it was better than the ratings give it. Its downfall was teh filtered appearance(BORING!)-lots of carbonation-big bubbles. flavor was very sweet, tasted like a lemon poppyseed muffin. smelled like grass, lemon and spicy hops. good flavor, but ratings are not very good due to the appearance. good summer quafer though on a hot New Mexico day!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2003
The beer pours a pellucid golden amber color, the head minimal; frothy in texture and it vanishes quite quickly leaving a thin sheet of lace to cover the glass. Nose is citrus crisp, clean and fresh, somewhat sweet as is the start that is also thickly malt; top is skinny in its feel to the palate. Finish is sprightly acidic and the hops pleasant enough in their spicy presence, dry lingering aftertaste, and a nice drinkable beer, not great, but drinkable nonetheless.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 2, 2003
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

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy (pine, resin, grapefruit), lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, modeately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The hoppiest American Wheat I've ever encountered, to the point that this isn't really an American Wheat anymore. This is an APA. Not lacking in aroma or flavor, mind you, but these aren't my kind of hops and it's not the way I would choose for an admittedly offbeat take on the style to set itself apart from the pack.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Bottle: best heffe i ever had, then again it didn't taste at all like a heffe. Clean in appearance and taste. No cumbersome bananna, clove, lemon, bubblegum get your girlfriend drunk heffe bullshit. Ideal summer ale.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2003
A golden ale with an off white head. A hop aroma with citrus notes. The flavor is hoppy with a touch of sweetness and a bitter finish. A decent carbonation that tingles the tongue.

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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 Clear cider color appearance, no head or lacing, poor. Also this is very filtered which most wheat’s should not be. Aroma is that of an American wheat, light processed hop and grapefruit aroma. Flavor is sour, sweet and hoppy, not too much wheat detectable. Finishes dry and tart, very average. This is a weird American wheat style but it has the basics covered, good for them, I'm not having this one again.
