COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Appealing Sorachi hops, an uncommon hop from Japan, balanced with lighter malts. Citrusy, fresh, clean. Sumír Organic Summer Ale pairs well with summer. It is an easy companion to most foods on the summer grill, such as chicken, fish, and burgers. Pairs well with curries and spicy foods. Try it with sushi!

Pours a light somewhat wimpy color. White head that doesnít linger. Just sort of a light, refreshing summer beer with not much too it. definitely some better "summer" offererings from other breweries that I would choose over this one. Might pair well with sushi as the brewer suggests....nice for a hot summer afternoon and probably not much else. Had in a bottle from zillies.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear pale gold with a thick, creamy white head. Tastes like pale malts, faint citrus, some corn, grassy hops, and some bitter grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like pale malts, corn, grassy hops, and faint citrus.

Crisp and clean with a bit of citrus. Very refreshing for a summer day. Very drinkable and relaxing. If you are looking for a pop this isnít it. But very mild, nice clear gold pour.

hopdog (11071) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2016
12oz bottle. Poured a yellow color with an averaged sized head. I can see why this is a summer ale ... should have had it when it was 90 degrees outside, chilled to the point it was tasteless.

oldrtybastrd (4914) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a light golden yellow. Aromas of light malts and grains with a hint of hops. Light, crisp malty flavor with a nice ending hop.

altonbrownd (5298) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Hazy straw body with thin head. Nose is hoppy, grainy and a bit sour. Taste is hoppy, quite grainy and funky, then gets a bit citrus in the finish. Pretty good.

beerbomb (222) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 rating this considering it is a light summer beer: aroma is toasted grain, rye, bread, pepper, yeast-some herbal hoppiness. flavor is light yet bold; quality grain, toasty cracker, yeast, slight peppery/herbal background. this is an excellent light beer-consider its around 4% abv-quality grain and hops, straight forward and refreshing-flavor doesnt cloy or get old-excellent mouthfeel and palate. for summer beers of this type-one of the best. **been drinking these since the summer and theyre still great from the cellar-says something about the quality

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Draft... Pours clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is a fruity medley of passionfruit, lime and lemon peels with a light note of resin. Light to medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is lightly citrusy and grainy and mildly buttery. Short, crisp finish.

12oz can. Pours extremely light yellow. Aroma of grain, soap. Flavor is grain, citrus. Very light with little flavor. I could see someone wanting to drink this on a summer day. I, however, am not one of those people. These beers are just too light and devoid of flavor to waste my time on. If you like to drink 3, 4, 5 (and up) beers in a day, this is the beer for you.

12 oz can poured. Still holding on to the summer beer dream right now, though I see more and more fall beers popping up. This is a pretty damn good summer beer, and at 4%, makes a good session. Pours golden with a cloud foam head. Interesting hop bill here, that until now, I have been unfamiliar with. Very easy drinking and refreshing. Awesome summer beer.
