COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This seasonal ale is medium bodied and modestly hopped to give it a crisp and refreshing palate with floral hop nose and flavors.

Imaena (1703) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Watery and light. Macro-esque swill with a fruity tinge. this is just bad. not worth considering.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 29, 2009
On tap at brew house. Pours a medium copper color with a one finger foamy head. A light malty sweet aroma, with a slight hoppy background. Flavor was mellow citrus and grain with a peppery and mild hop finish. Drinkable but average summer beer.

notalush (4638) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Rating of 2008 batch at Lake Grove location - clear golden pour - grassy and herbal aroma, with some lemony notes - cool, melon rind-like flavor up front, followed by moderate bready malt, and a crisp, semi-herbal hop finish - fairly refreshing - not bad really, but a coppery, metallic character develops after a while that makes it a lot less enjoyable (a lot of their beers have developed this lately - ???).

On Draft @ John Harvards brewhouse with the Mad_Indian. Pours pale copper with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and hops. The flavor is slightly sweet, citrus, and finishes lightly bitter.

MadIndian (2306) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Sampled with Stegosaurus during our second Boston Tour. Served at John Harvards brewing. Yellow pour with a sweet lemon aroma. Thin for my taste.

Goodgrief (1744) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2007
July 2005 - This beer poured yellow with very little head. A hoppish aroma and slight hoppy taste. It was very watery and had very little taste.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Sampled on draft at the Monroeville PA location this beer poured a light golden color with a small white head. The aroma was lightly tangy and a bit grassy. The flavor was light tangy malts with a faint floral hop presence. The body is rather light even for the style.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2005
Tap@John Harvards, Boston, Ma. Sweet and buttery, very light, with some grassy hop notes. Too thin. If only i came in winter to try their winter seasonals.

ABUSEDGOAT (2277) - California, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Weak but slightly fruity aroma. Not much in it, but simple and barely enjoyable.
