Draft at J’s Oyster in Portland. Pours a clear amber with a small, just barely off-white head. A little darker than a typical golden/blond ale. Notes of citrus (lemon mostly), sweet and bready malts, wheat, and faint grassy hops. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, refreshing mouthfeel. Very nice, bested expectations.

Smells of pale malts. Spicy. Good refreshing summer beer. Cool label on the bottle. Hehe

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
355ml bottle. Golden colour. Wheaty aroma, but flavour is more bold hops. Unusual for a summer ale.

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
355ml bottle. Copper pour with very little head. There’s a really green quality with a lot of grain and a lemon vibe. Quite sweet on the palate with that really grainy feel and a chalky texture.

Different for a "summer" brew. Hoppier and fuller flavored than most. Easy enough to drink.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2011
clear amber color with a big white head and good lace on the bottle. There is much carbonation in the glass. A lemon citrus and light bready aroma. There was a slight hops smell but mostly wheaty malt. The flavor displays a greater hops imprint than the smell indicted. The grassy hops leads to a clean taste and light palate that makes a powerful tasting yet pleasing summer ale.

Draught from ginger man. Pours an ambery gold. Mild thinnish head. Mild aroma. Some citrus and straw. Apples and pears to taste. Mild hops earth finish.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Pours a deep golden body with a lacing, creamy beige head. Aromas of grain, little grassy. Flavor has grainy notes, some lemongrass, and banana. finish is creamy and lasting grain and banana note.

Fairly good. A little malty and sweet but finishing kind of bitter. Personally, this wouldn’t be my summer beer as comes across kind of rich, but it’s pretty tasty for anytime, really.
