I get that spicy grassy, floral hop smell with some grainy Pilsner malt. Crisp and refreshing with that spicy hop bite and the Pilsner bready malt with some wheat tastes in there as well. The hops end the beer and give a tangy bitterness just as Sierra Nevada describes. This is an excellent beer for the style and definitely one of my all time favorite summer beers to drink on a hot summer day.

This beer is not summer at all. This is a pale ale wrapped in a summer label. ... Nothing special, I would not recommend !

pilsnery and quite wonderfully fruity smell...taste is very slightly sweet...not as fruity as smell though, hops come out more...one of the best pilsner styles I’ve had....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw with a finger of coarse white head. Settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is bready, pale, malty, slightly medicinal. Flavor is bready, grain, cereal, pale malt. Moderate carbonation and light body. Found this to be lacking and disappointing from a brewery that is usually top tier, not nearly as good as I remember.

Pours the same as a Budweiser heavy does, except with a large white head that sticks around instead of fizzing out immediately. Aromas of some noble type hops, a touch skunky. Taste is pretty clean and refreshing. I like this beer pretty good for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clear straw color with two fingers of white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of grain and some malt sweetness with some earthy hop character. A bit of sweetness from the malt and some cracker flavor from the yeast. The saaz hops are apparent and give the beer a nice spiciness and earthiness mid palate and help it finish with a crisp but moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium body and medium carbonation. A nice take on a pilsner/lager from a brewery that mainly does ales. Lots of enjoyable flavor and very easy drinking, make this as advertised, a great summer beer.
