Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2000
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 Bright golden. Toasty, herbal, spicy aroma. Clean yeast character, faint pale malts and a little bit of spiciness. Also some yeast and minerals. Quick, refreshing.

Old notes (2000: Beige with a spicy, yeasty-fruity aroma, the carbonation is spritzy but forceful, and the palate showing the malty-yeasty-spicy combination of a grisette, but lighter in body. 7 3 6 3 14 = 3.3

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 19, 2011
A: The beer pours a lightly hazed golden orange color with a tall white head. S: Lemon zest, banana, and bubblegum make for a very...interesting aroma. Light breadiness from the malts with a moderate sweetness. Hints of pepper and other spices. T: Sweet pale malts with some light bready notes. Pepper and earthy flavors are present as is a hint of banana. Lots of lemon, particularly lemon zest, with a little bit of tartness to it. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Not nearly as bad as their IPA that I had before it, but still not a fan.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dishwater gold with a slight white head. Aroma is light light pitted fruit with a hint of yeast/spice. Med body more or less. Flavor is lightly bready, slightly fruit, dusty/wheaty. Spicy - not to my tastebuds. Summer beer it is.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 GABF 07 and re-visit from the bottle Pours gold with an average, creamy, off-white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (grain, hay, straw, meal), light hops (grass), and dusty. Light bodied, average carbonation, and a bitter finish.

Dogbrick (12466) - 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.

jcwattsrugger (12335) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2005
on tap-a nice golden color. A white head that reduced to minimal. Aroma-hoppy, flavor-hoppy. Towards crisp/dry. Not complex, nice.

hopdog (12083) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Poured a light yellow with a small white head. Light grassy and citrus aromas and tastes. Thinner body. Light refreshing beer. Not really my favorite style (light on the aroma and tastes).
