12 oz bottle. Pale with a white head. Spicey, slightly citrus aroma, and subtle. Flavor is well balanced with hops. Crisp, light refreshing, and has a bit of character to make it a decent summer brew.

This didn’t live up to the expectations, the taste wasn’t as good as I would have expected. I wouldn’t buy this again unless it was free.

Had a large active head and lots of carbonation. Slightly skunky cascade hops smell that I find in all SN. Smells of rubber. There is a light body. The flavor is rubber, toast and apricots. Not refreshing.

Good for a lager, especially one that is kind of citrus flavored, kind of reminds me of a wheat with extra hops. Worth a drink on a hot day.

A nice tight white head over a nice glass exactly the color of... well, let’s not judge a beer by its color. I’m really not a lager fan; there are only a few I like, and this is one. All lagers should taste more like this. Citrus notes blend with hops to make a fairly complex flavor, but it remains light enough (even at 5%) to be a good hot-weather beer.

Light in color, small white head, weak summer beer, tastes similar to Weinhards private researve.

Fresh and crisp flavor, with a nice balance between malt and hops. Some light wheat and some citrus flavors too. I liked it.

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Frankly I was expecting better, but what can I say I am a dark beer girl.

For a lager, I can't believe it, its not that bad. I guess a craftbrewery can even make a lager taste good. Similar to a Sam Adams with a fresher taste. Pretty hoppy, but also pretty refreshing. Welcome summer.
