3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow color. Foamy head, decent lacing. Light and crisp on the tongue, dry finish, with just a hint of the fruitiness from the hops coming through. Has a sort of mineral taste to it, not unlike drinking sparkling mineral water. Pretty solid, it’s something different than the same old.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Sparkling Ale is one of those stylistic descriptors you rarely see. Unfiltered yellow-tan with some small floaties. Foamy glass rimming white head. I’d be more comfortable calling this a Golden Ale. Kind of a straightforward Golden Ale in most respects. The NZ hops are its most enjoyable characteristic. OK.

Aroma us simular to any lager or ale. No discernable flavor other than bitterness. Like someone took water and ground up some hops in it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Straw color, perhaps a bit darker than "straw" might indicate, but still pale. Hazy with quite a bit of carbonation, nice head, white, good lacing and retention. Hops evident in the aroma. Initial taste is crisp hops, transition to some malts, but still hops are more evident, then a bitter finish. Low ABV is good if you plan on having several. Enjoyable, but not my favorite from Summit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is some honey malt, a bit of onion hop and a overall dryness. Flavor is a nice dry cracker pils malt to start, then comes a decent grassy hop with a little fresh citrus in there. This was a decent beer and one that has more to offer than I thought. Plenty flavorful even with the low alcohol.
