355ml bottle pours a light golden color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal some fairly nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and floral with a hint of citrus. Taste is a light citrus and grass hop bitterness with a malty sweetness underneath. Typical brew for the style, nothing special. Easy drinking session brew.

355mL found for $2. Pours a low haze golden. Thicker than expected white head. Webby lacing. Nose is squashy, pineapple air freshener, grass, odd butterscotch. As it warms more butterscotch. Taste is dry, grassy, soapy, spicy. Hints of butterscotch in the background. Fairly bitter. Odd but not offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Peak Organic Summer Session Ale is a very clear, golden ale with a thick, fluffy, white head that has great retention and lacing. It has a very earthy smell with a fresh hop aroma thatís bright and citrusy. It smells great. Itís medium light bodied, smooth and soft. The finish is quick and dry, leaving the mouth a little slick. It has a nice, tight, dry, bitter flavor with lots of lemon peel and a hint of grass and herbs. The bitterness lingers for a while after the taste. This beer is a very pleasant surprise. It has a lot more flavor than I was expecting and itís very refreshing. Iím a fan.

Iím surprised by how much I like this beer! Pours a nice gold with a nice white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is sweet and citrusy wheat notes are also plentiful. flavor is more complex then must summer session beers, citrus notes with a sweet malty wheat finish
