The Summer Paradise is a crisp, copper ale that makes one wonder how so much flavor could be bestowed upon each pint. Made with fresh blood oranges and locally produced raw honey, this ale keeps with the tradition of brewing easy drinking beers during warmer months. This refreshing quencher is made with just a hint of spice, within a backdrop of citrus, reminding you of a summer in paradise. 5.0% ABV, 18 IBUs

On tap at Pinocchio’s in Media. Pours a hazy yellow with a very thin head. the aroma was rather bland, some malt and a bit of grass. The flavor is fairly hoppy on top of the malt. Dry and refreshing.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a dense white head, average retention.
Aroma: Light caramel sweetness with a dry cracker aroma.
Taste: This tastes like church wafers with a hint of caramel sweetness. Boy this sucks.
Palate: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I wouldn’t drink this again if it were free. This is bland and just sucks overall. If I had to pick my least liked, most bland Summer beer, which most are already bland, this would be it.

EithCubes (5206) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Tap. Golden but leaning toward orange, nose wheat with light citrus and coriander. Medium body a little flattish, minimal bitterness, somewhat dry, wheat with light citrus but generally bland. Echoing the first rating below, similar to Sammy’s summer seasonal (grains of paradise, etc) but perhaps a notch below.

Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, grain, and a hint of Armenian string cheese. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, grain, and hop finish is dry.

Draft. Pours orange amber with a thin head. Sweet fruity aroma with citric zest and honey. The flavor has sweet honey like malt notes, some citric hops, and zesty citrusy spices. Pretty good.

Draft at Spinnerstown Hotel. Pours hazy gold with white head. Nose is pale malt, coriander, hops, citrus, some apricotty fruit. The palate is medium to light and not terribly complex, with flavors of hopcitrus, spice, pale malt, and I got some fruitiy notes in this.

On tap at the brew pub. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a very small bubbly white head. Aroma of lemon peel, light corriander, some grains of paradise, wheat/cereal notes. Flavor was much of the same. Pretty much tasted like Sam Adams Summer Ale, which is what they were going for.
