COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Somersault is a fun roll around on the tongue, while requiring only the minimum of palate gymnastics. This is the perfect summer lounge-around beer. Somersault tumbles out with citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a soft apricot fruitiness tucked into the flavor, a full mouthfeel from the addition of oats and a crisp, dry finish from the subtle addition of ginger.

SDalkoholic (2223) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from Bonita Liquor: Poured a golden straw blonde with a fluffy topping of foam head. Not much aroma for me to smell other than some light notes of hops that have a hint of citrus peel. The flavor is bland with a faint background of grained malt that gives off a tiny bit of honey while a grassy usage of hops goes almost unnoticed. Boring recipe, but quite refreshing on a hot summer day on the 4th of July.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow orange color with a white head. Has a musty, fruit like aroma. Medium/light mouthfeel. Slightly hoppy with a sweet lemon like zest as well hiding in there. The ginger is evident as well. Its not bad and would probably be pretty good on a hot day.

Light and easy drinking. Overall not super crazy just simply drinkable. Lots of mild florals.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange-kissed golden colour with a one-finger thick dense white head. Very little lace. Aroma is fresh and clean, floral/fruity hops and light cereal. Nice juicy apricot fruit hop signature, light citrus, clean cereal malts. Finish is mildly bitter and tart. Refreshing and very sessionable. Sometimes these simple blonde ales just hit the spot.

jeremyh70 (873) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Nice golden blonde color that is transparent with a finger of head that sticks around. Hints of lemon and citrus in scent. Earthy/floral taste with even hops and touch of citrus aftertaste. Slightly complex taste with smooth body that is on the lighter side and drinkable. Good for a summer day if you want something good and easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love me some Centennial hops and this is a decent vehicle to deliver those to my belly.

mbgrayson (617) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma is clean, slightly hoppy, with a hint of citrus. Taste is refreshing. Well balanced notes of malt, hops, and maybe a bit of lemon. A very nice beer for a warm day. Thumbs up.

Drinking summer in a glass in December may have brought the numbers down somewhat.....an easy drinking, pale colored uncomplicated ale. Would be perfect by the water in the summer- or post-surf. Lots of citrus with a hint of ginger. Not overly hoppy- 28 IBU. Refreshing.

BeerFlavoredBeer (254) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Crystal clear, light golden body with orange highlights. Finger or so of sticky white head that leaves significant lacing. Drains to a creamy skim. Mild yeast, light citrus hops and malts in the nose. Some grassy notes. Light bodied, mildly hoppy. Pleasant, easy to drink, doesn’t fatigue the palate.
