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.

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.

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.

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.
