UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Cloudy golden color with a small white head, some lacing. Sweet, fruity, slightly spicy aroma. Very nice citrus taste, some sweetness. Mouthfeel was not all that spectacular... but this was not bad.

Very lightly hazed straw body topped by large white head. Aroma is medium sweet, apple, herbal. Taste is light sweet, herbal, cereal, light grassy, finishing herbal. Light body.

On draft at the Standard Tap. I remember this being a very refreshing herby brew, but am now unimpressed. Pale straw colored pint with no head and no lace. Nothing remarkable, just a well made average brew.

(Draught) Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium-sized white head. Had a watery mouthfeel. Had flavors of grass, hops, and yeast.

color is hazy light golden with a moderate white head, not long-lived though. aroma is very sweet/candy-ish. kind of perfumey like a candle. flavor is pretty fruity, not that sweet, in fact, it's fairly tart. little citrus, and you can taste the wheat (at least that's what i think it is).

jgb9348 (6476) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Nice sweet aroma with hints of grass, mushrooms, hops and yeast. Light-bodied; Sweet taste with some mustyness and yeast characteristics. Aftertaste clean and mild, not much else! Overall, not too great, lacking in many qualities and below expectation. I bought this twelve ounce bottle from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. and sampled it on 19-December-2003.

Kind of fuzzy yellow color with some wheat and floral in the aroma. Kind of watered down, but some wheat amd malt in the flavor. Somewhat light as well. Overall not bad, but kind of too watered down for my liking.

Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2003
This beer is a pale gold/yellow color and is mildly bubbly. Thin off-white head that did not last. The aroma is wheaty and vaguely spiced. Light and crisp with a nice hops presence along with more spice and a little citrus. The finish is a little on the sweet side but has a small hops bite to it. Kudos to Flying Fish for actually making a Summer Ale with some flavor other than lemon.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Sparkling clear, very light, straw-colored beer. The quickly disappearing head leaves fair lacework. A mild brew in both aroma and flavor. A touch buttery with hints of butterscotch and grass. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Call it a Saison if you like, but to me it tastes and feels like any other mild British style brew. Absolutely not spectacular. Refreshing, though. Brewed to be enjoyed during the hot Summer months.
