Thanks to “cheap” for this brew. I always believed that this is probably one of the most underrated breweries in the country. Hey make good tasting domestic brew at better than your average price for them. I didn’t know this was a re- release, but a good clean, crisp beer. Must drink ice cold. I do like these stubby bottles.

Beer has a golden yellow color with a small head. It has a light malt aroma with some wheat. Taste is malty with some grain. Light hint of sweetness. Light beer that is an easy drinker.

Pours a pale gold, with a large white head that dissipates quickly. Delivers what it promises, "lager with a hint of sweetness". Not as watery as the Fyfe & Drum I just tried, rather this has a creamy mouthfeel - a quality that seems the opposite of what one would look for in a summertime beer. Not very flavorful, but nothing offensive, either.

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