OKAY, but really nothing special of note. Fairly easy drinking, but there’s a litany of brews I’d rather have on a hot sunny day. Still love SN, just not crazy about this offering.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass.
Best by 09/11/2015.
A: A gentle pour yields a small quickly settling head with nice lace patterns and prolific carbonation bubbles. Clear brassy gold color is very nice.
S: Light floral hops and sour baguette toast.
T: Balanced soft flavors of biscuit and sweet bread quickly followed by bitter hops. Short, dry finish. Very good. A bit of a vegetal note late but not off-putting.
M: Light but still full mouthfeel with lots of carbonation though not enough to be out of place for the style.
O: I’ve now rated both Summerfest and Nooner. I thought I was sure I preferred Nooner But now who knows. I like them both a lot.

Geruch nicht besonders intensiv, aber schön malzig. Geschmack geht in Richtung Pils, kratzt aber leider im Abgang und auch die Bittere ist etwas unausgewogen.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Straw-yellow body with a silky white head. No lacing left behind. Aroma is grainy with some bitter, earthy hops in the background. A touch of lemon zest... Maybe some cereal. Not much going on, really. Flavor is light, too. Pale malt, milled grains, oat, a touch of lemon & orange zest, faint yeast. Even a small touch of clove (?) in the finish. Overall, just kind of vapid & bland. Crisp mouth feel, light bodied, finishes clean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear golden, two finger quick white head, some lacing and some retention. Aroma of grass and light citrus. Taste is nicely balanced lightly sweet, light earthy bitter. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of grass, herbs, lemon, mango and hay. A nice refreshing summer Pils.

Draft. Moderately grassy nose with a light pepper character. Moderately bitter with a grassy and almost astringent hop finish. A tad dry. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Cashwise in Williston. Appearance: finger white head, straw color, clear, light to no lacing. Aroma: light wheat, crisp grassy hops with notes of citrus. Palate: light body, crisp, average carbonation, light bitter finish. Taste: sweet wheat and malty biscuit into pilsner hops with notes of lemongrass. Overall, very drinkable, very crisp, very good on a summer day. Nothing amazing all things considered though.

You can’t expect this style to wow u anyways but still makes for a good lager with extra flavor compared to its cheaper counterparts
