Summer Beer is a Pre-Prohibition Pils, brewed alt style. This beer is crisp, clean, refreshing and hoppy, Inspired by the long-forgotten beverage of our great-grandparents, our "twist" is that we ferment this beer with our exceptionally clean ale yeast at much lower than normal temperatures, which imparts a somewhat different character compared to lager yeast. In the Pre-Pro style, we use a small proportion of maize (corn). The noble (and expensive) Czech Saaz hop variety is used through-out, and gives this beer a spciy herbal character and dryish finish. This new rendition of an old classic will add a unique contrast to any line-up!!

22oz. bomber pours a golden yellow color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves great lacing. smells of corn, sweet malt and light hops. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a hoppy/spicy peppery finish. Moutheel is light and creamy and chewy with great carbonation and a semi dry finish. Pretty good pisner, great for summer and is nice and light and full of flavor.

Draft pour pint at the brewery. Pours a cloudy blonde color with very little head. Iím just imagining the meeting they had when naming this beer. Someone probably was given the overnight task of naming it, and forgot his homework. So what should we name or new summer beer? Ummmmm, uhh.. Summer Beer?? Classic, I like that. Sometimes we need to get straight to the point. Exactly the opposite of what this rating is. But thatís not what this is about. This beer is tasty, but I could see myself enjoying this year round. Full body flavor in a light beer. Grainy, soft fruit. Fruit peel, slight bitter finish. Good beer here.

Draught at brewpub
Hazy dark blond color. Delicate malt profile, with some crispy malt trait, very light biscuits, and the hopping is strong and lightly zesty.
Nice summer beer.

Prufrockstar (1995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Draft at the zoo during Josh Ritter concert. Clear gold pour as the sun mercifully ducks behind the trees. Fruity, grassy, corny. Starts pleasantly pilsy, finishes exceptionally bitter -- like ipa dishsoap bitter. Sulfur, biscuit, cereal, legs (nope, not the beer, just me getting distracted -- ah, summertime). Hint of bubblegum, medium body with loads of carbonation. Overall: NW IPilsL? Also, Iím ridiculous -- there are two beer gardens here and Iím sitting alone in the one with the new tick instead of the other one with friends. To be fair, I was there earlier and Iím not really in the mood for chatting, but still this is pretty dumb. Iím where I want to be at the moment, but Iím pretty sure that means Iím seriously missing the point.

madvike (3205) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours clear golden with a thin white head--off-putting floaties abound. Nose is lightly sweet and spicy--honey and white pepper with dry pale malt. Taste is roughly the same. Dry pale malt, lightly spicy and astringent finish, with some sharp herbal hopping and light peppery notes. Pretty well carbonated, with a thin, lightly slick body.
