3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/19/2012. Pours a lightly cloudy golden straw color with a nice 1-2 finger fluffy white head with nice retention, that reduces to a good cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pear, bread, lemon, cracker, herbal, grass, floral, light pepper, and earthy spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance, but they are quite muted. Taste of lemon zest, pear, bread, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and earthy spiciness. Light spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, lemon, bread, herbal, grass, and pepper on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of flavors, with a good malt/hop balance; a touch watered down; zero cloying flavors after the finish as expected. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice kolsch. Nice flavor balance and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Nothing great. Grass and a little bread dominate the aromas. The beer is light golden with a fizzy white head. Balanced with floral hops, though a touch soapy. Crisp and light.

Pours a light yellow with a small frothy white top. Aroma is light and fruity with grassy notes. Taste is grassy and straw malts. Thanks to spinrsx for this.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells special when you crack the bottle, like your ex-friend’s stickiest green. Closer inspection reveals its just burnt malt from the mash. Piss yellow beer with a white head. Heavily carbonated. Very sweet like honeycomb cereal and corn with a pinch of lemon peel Some crisp hoppiness begs to come to the surface but cant get past the burnt malt. What garbage. Should have known... harpoon.

soft sweet aroma w/ note of citrus; crystal clear golden yellow w/ no head; soft crisp flava, dry wheat finish w/ notes of citrus and berry although I don’t believe any were used, just from the yeast and malt; fizzy crisp clean feel, GREAT after doing some dreadful outside chores around the house. Or just because;)

Overall a pretty good beer. There’s a fruity lemony aspect to this beer that sets it a bit above the average "summer beer". Worth checking out if you want something light.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice crisp summer brew. I like the look in the glass (dirty but deep straw yellow - more yellow than straw). Nose is ok. Palate is very crisp/clean/grassy notes/touch of lemon but barely. OK head, mild lacing. Very tasty from bottle to pilsner glass. Would buy again (esp when its 92 and high humidity!)

Harpoons summer beer is a great hot weather beer, very refreshing. Good wheat beer with a citrus vibe.

The aroma is light yeasty bread, the appearance is a clear gold with a thin white head much like a typical mass produced beer. The taste is clean and refreshing. A very easy beer to drink and overall a nice brew to have on a hot day.
