COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Somersault is a fun roll around on the tongue, while requiring only the minimum of palate gymnastics. This is the perfect summer lounge-around beer. Somersault tumbles out with citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a soft apricot fruitiness tucked into the flavor, a full mouthfeel from the addition of oats and a crisp, dry finish from the subtle addition of ginger.

Light gold and clear with a thin, quickly fading head. Light and smooth texture with moderate carbonation. Subtle sweetness is earthy and doughy. Very mild bitterness. Somewhat drying. Faint spicy-lemony nip. Vinous (white wine mostly) and spicy. Slight fruitiness in the finish. Easy drinking yet unexciting. All its elements seemed so restrained; I wanted at least one thing to stand out.

Golden beer. Lots of bubbling. White head. Not very aromatic. A little gummy. Lively bite. Flavor is smooth and full, but the beer is light. Reminds me of a pilsner. The flavor is grassy and good and hoppy. The mouthfeel is a little annoying though and it sticks to your tongue.

drowland (9186) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2011
5/24/11. 12oz bottle courtesy mlunger12! Clear dark gold pour with a big fluffy white head that cuts but laces a ton. Purfumey, almost soapy, aroma with some pale malts. Sweet lemon flavor at first followed by earthy hops and grains, dust, pale malts, metal, and a pleasing lingering dryness. Not bad.

Draft. Clear golden pour, with white head. Lightly bready malt, herbal hops, lemon, light tart, and ginger. An easy drinking summer beer, it accomplishes it’s purpose.

Cavie (4874) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Tap at FW Gman. It pours a very clear yellow to light orange color. Heavy foamy white head that sits and remains. Aroma is lemon grains, grassy hops with a bit of spiced kick. Lots of aroma for the style. Flavor is citric fruit upfront; lemon and lime with a light bitter kick from the hops in the back. Light mouthfeel with soothing sweet malts. This is surprisingly good and quite refreshing.

draft and bottle. clear apple juice body with large-bubbled patchy off-white head. grain husk and dough nose with touches of vitamin-b and sea foam. combination of pale malt and mild green hops gives it a wet grass and hay flavor. minerallic and rough with a watery finish and dishsoap undertones. abrasive and rigid.

Somersault starts with the aroma, which has a certain level of lemony graininess. It also has a light sourdough bread characteristic that I usually get out of lagers. It’s a pretty beer, blonde in color, with a nice foamy head. I’m eating this with goat cheese and it actually goes really well together. The high carbonation of the beer helps to scrub the palate of the creamy goat cheese, and the citrusy taste plays well with the smooth cheese. I had this on tap earlier this week and didn’t really care for it, but for whatever reason tonight it’s kind of hitting the spot. Does a neat trick of being very light and easy to drink while remaining full flavored. Not bad at all.
