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.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of ginger and lemongrass. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. While it doesnít have the purported full mouthfeel (quite thin and watery), the ginger is obvious and pleasant. The beer underneath the ginger is just fine too. Overall a forgettable spiced quaffer, but still better than most NB beers these days.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Light gold and clear with a thin, quickly fading head. Light and smooth texture with moderate carbonation. Subtle sweetness is earthy and doughy. Very mild bitterness. Somewhat drying. Faint spicy-lemony nip. Vinous (white wine mostly) and spicy. Slight fruitiness in the finish. Easy drinking yet unexciting. All its elements seemed so restrained; I wanted at least one thing to stand out.

Golden beer. Lots of bubbling. White head. Not very aromatic. A little gummy. Lively bite. Flavor is smooth and full, but the beer is light. Reminds me of a pilsner. The flavor is grassy and good and hoppy. The mouthfeel is a little annoying though and it sticks to your tongue.

drowland (7868) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2011
5/24/11. 12oz bottle courtesy mlunger12! Clear dark gold pour with a big fluffy white head that cuts but laces a ton. Purfumey, almost soapy, aroma with some pale malts. Sweet lemon flavor at first followed by earthy hops and grains, dust, pale malts, metal, and a pleasing lingering dryness. Not bad.

Draft. Clear golden pour, with white head. Lightly bready malt, herbal hops, lemon, light tart, and ginger. An easy drinking summer beer, it accomplishes itís purpose.

Cavie (4234) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Tap at FW Gman. It pours a very clear yellow to light orange color. Heavy foamy white head that sits and remains. Aroma is lemon grains, grassy hops with a bit of spiced kick. Lots of aroma for the style. Flavor is citric fruit upfront; lemon and lime with a light bitter kick from the hops in the back. Light mouthfeel with soothing sweet malts. This is surprisingly good and quite refreshing.

draft and bottle. clear apple juice body with large-bubbled patchy off-white head. grain husk and dough nose with touches of vitamin-b and sea foam. combination of pale malt and mild green hops gives it a wet grass and hay flavor. minerallic and rough with a watery finish and dishsoap undertones. abrasive and rigid.

nice easy drinking light ale. Light aroma and flavor. Light straw in color, clear with a thin head. Slight ginger in the finish this is a summer ale for sure.
