Bottle - clear light gold - lively pour - nose is grassy hops, citrus zest, light mint/herbs, some mineral character - flavor is like golden ale meets pils - clean, lean maltiness provides light sweetness and crackery character, but mostly gets out of the way of the crisp, herbal bite of th German hops - light wildflower and citrus in the finish - lingering peppery hops - think Prima Pils in golden ale form - a really great summer brew.

Good beer. Yellowish in color with a fluffy white head. Minimal floral aroma and flavor. There wasva nice hop-malt balance.

12 oz. Bottle. From fireworks. Pours a hazy yellow with no head. The nose is herbal hops in the nose. The flavor is herbal and noble hops with a slight grain twist and and a slight fruitiness on the back end. This will fool any lager lover into loving ales.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint plaza. Beer is light golden color with white head, very clear and appealing. Aroma is pilsner hops and spice from the German pale malts. Taste is like a lighter lager with pilsner notes and a nice clean hop finish. Body is light and refreshing, so as the name implies, a great summer beer. Finish is long with the pils style bitterness. Overall, exactly what I was expecting.

Well I liked everything victory put out till I cracked this gem. Silly pebble in the rough. This beer is almost budweiser. I actually would prefer budweiser. Fuck this crap. Looks like piss, smells like plisner malts and almost tastes like wolf pussy. To be more technical the hops do not match the malt bill. Odd hop bill, too many weak hops, like overdoing Kent east goldings

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Powdery floral and light grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow color with large head. Sweet light malt and moderately bitter grapefruit/pine hops flavor. Palate on the light side. Okay - light on the malt but strong hops presence.

Viewed through the prism of a refreshing summer blonde ale, itís difficult to see this beer as anything less than stellar. Hay/grassy hops, sweet malt that isnít overwhelming, and a generally light body that is perfect for the style. When you want more from less, this is a good option.

On tap. Clean lines. Beer pours golden with a red tint; lively head. Aroma is wheaty but mild. Good head retention. Taste is clean with a nice flavor profile into a medium body; smooth finish with a clean aftertaste - excellent summer beer; very impressed with the 2011 version!
