Drain pour from start to finish. I liked the fact HFBC tried to crank out a seasonal, but this was so far off the mark. I hope they keep trying.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 12 oz. can. You gotta give them points for a great looking can. The beer is not bad either. Typical lager flavored with honey adds some sweetness and makes for an enjoyable summer brew. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen this on the shelves in a couple of years now.

Interesting change for Genny. Had a different taste then most other Summer brews, wish it was still on the shelves.

Nasty sub-par attempt to ride the coattails of other brewers doing the Summer Beer Thang. Thin, weak, tasting like metal. This beer was bad. You should be glad that they stopped making it I think.
