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. Poured a light yellow with an average sized frothy white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was very mild of a grain malt and a moderate dose of floral hops with a hint of citrus (lemon), apricot and spices. It tasted very lightly sweet with notes of citrus and fruit at first then became a tad sour with a mild hoppy finish. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet a little dry in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall basically a lager with a little more of a hoppy flavor, very little.

Aurelius (4638) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bright, hoppy APA aroma with honeyish tones. Good bottle, interesting label, clear pale gold brew. Tangy, lemony tea is my first impression. And my second. Medium body. Meh. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Well suited for what appears to be its intended purpose - a light, refreshing summer ale. The low alcohol means you can have a few extra to keep cool. Pours clear orange-yellow with a thin white head. Citrus, grass, hints of yeast, flavors are the same. Crisp light body, enjoyable.

mmmbeer (1309) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent yellow with slight orange tint, one finger head formed and did stay around for awhile while I had a smoke, very light lacing upon the vessel. Aroma of hops ( I smell saaz, not centennial). Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt tastes like it was bathed in sunshine before the hot water hit it- which works in this case, middle has orange, apricot, and lemons in it, finish is slightly dry with a small ginger crunch to it. Nice.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Clear copper, large foamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of tropical, citrus hops, pale malt, hay. The taste is doughy malt, juicy fruits, spicy, citrus, floral hops. Medium bodied, moderate lingering bitterness, high carbonation.

Dogbrick (9366) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Sample at the tap room. Pours a clear orange-straw color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet citrus, herbal hops and toasty malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hops and slight ginger aftertaste. Decent overall.

A fresh, light per for summer brew. The fruity palate is not on a hot summer evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VungTauMantis (8) - Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2015 does not count
I did not care for this at all. It tasted like it had too much lemon hints in it. Not a bad thing, but it really washes out the rest of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (5188) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Random golden ale. Some sour kind of citrus. Pours amber with OK head. Finish falls off completely. Boring. Tap at Churchkey.

BlackHaddock (4875) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
12oz bottle in my hotel room ( Oceanside, California) on 27th May 2015. Poured into a plastic beaker while watching ’shit TV’. Clear golden body, the head a full and lasting white covering. Aroma is loose with a mild fruit hint, the taste is also leaning towards fruity flavours with a malt backbone. Refreshing yet lacking in flavour and depth. I think this is the worst score I have given a ber from these guys at this brewery.

Stampion (183) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, no head o speak of. Crisp and refreshing with a little bit going on. Sweat, citrus lemon and some malts. Nice on the pallet and nice on a summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
