I was initially put off because it looked like a hefeweizen. Creamy, citrus and wheat.

When there are so many great German Hefe’s out there, I wonder why some American brewers even bother. Oh well. Beer pours cloudy medium golden with a nicely retained white head. Very muted aroma. A whiff of wheat, perhaps. Flavor is lightly wheaty with a small taste of yeast. The finishing flavor is worty. Very forgettable.

It looked good in the glass. Hazy golden color, thick white head. Citrus and grass aroma all wrapped around a bad taste. Too much lemon and grain of paradise, or whatever the hell that is. They shouldn’t have brewed it with the lemon. Let the drinker decide whether he or she wants it or not. Skunky finish. Would not recommend.

Pretty good, definitely a summer ale in the sense that you would drink this outside in the sun when you won’t really notice its not the greatest

Yellow with a white head. Spicy aroma, a little citrussy. Refreshingly bland citrussy lawnmower beer flavor. I hate Summer beers.

Draught at Jack’s in S.F. 05.23.04 In need of a starter beer at lunchtime the day after a TOUGH night at the Toronado, I said, "why not" and ordered a glass of this beer that I figured I wouldn’t be sad about leaving behind if it sucked or I just couldn’t stomach a brew just yet. Pour was light gold, medium head, sporadic lacing. Plain, almost pilsenerish with sweet hops. Light flavor and crisp finish. So-so, whatever.

On tap at the Crescent Moon Alehouse. Very smooooooth. A strong light malty flavor- isn’t that weird? Makes you wonder if this is higher alcohol than they admit. Appears a golden to light brown cloudy color. Unfiltered or chill haze? Subtle citrus flavors. Drinks very quick. Striking absence of any hop flavoring at all, but somehow this works.

Poured cloudy gold with a small head. Lots of grains with some citrus overtones. Easy drinking ale.
