COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-bodied, unfiltered Blonde ale that retains the bold flavors typical of an Ipswich Ale, our Summer Ale is light enough for a hot summer day and can satisfy even the most scorching thirst.

Pours hazy golden brown. Sweet, citrus notes, but they’re overpowered by hoppy bitterness. OK, but not great.

AbbeyRoade (299) - Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Aroma is floral, hoppy, spicy. Taste is bitter and alcoholic. Spicy flavor with a wee bit of wheat but more hop than anything else. Not too easy/pleasant to drink due to the bitterness/alcoholic-ness throughout.

wheresyourball (491) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle picked up in Boston. Pours clear yellow. Nose is floral with honey; flavor is wheat, floral hops. Bitter finish. Easy to drink but not a lot of flavor.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Aroma is light floral and some caramel. Not what is expected for a wheat ale. Hazy golden appearance. Lightly bitter with some sweet notes. Easy drinking light body. I am confused, this seems like a typical blonde ale and barely has any wheat present in it.

Theydon_Bois (8100) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Tap at Plan B, Springfield, 19/05/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is pale malts, citus, hops, caramel. Taste comprises pale malts, grass, citrus, light hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish. Ok stuff - basic but refreshing.

TheHopster (791) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2012
(Bottle) I was impressed this ale would hold the white fluffy head throughout the entire length of the glass, complete with lacing. Nice unfiltered light golden complexion with persistent light combination. The flavor is light without being too watery or weak. Very drinkable for warm weather beer.

blipp (5974) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery, with some earthy and spicy notes, and a wheaty, yeasty and floral finish. Pretty good.

gripweed57 (632) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle. loudy gold color. Small rocky white head. Light estery malt aroma, a bit sulphery with lemon. Tart salty malt flavor lacks any real fruit or wheat character. Rather boring.

MaBeer1972 (1278) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A slightly cloudy and hoppy deep unfiltered golden brew. Light sweet malty flavors. Sticky, bittering finish. OK, but not very refreshing for a summer beer.
