Mostly clear, sunshine gold brew. Small, frothy white head.
The nose is yeasty with leather and apricot notes.
Mild citrus and butterscotch flavors. A bit thin. Dry rye notes.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. I guess I'll go against the grain here and hand out a good score. Great beach beer! It is what it is... a very light ale.

The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
This beer is underrated, I suspect that people don’t understand it. Pours a nice deep canary. Great citrus, hoppy aroma, with a citrus, hop, yeast, fruity finish. Nice complexity. This beer deserves to be rated higher here. alexsdad06 (10259) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear yellow body with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light pale malts, slightly herbal, with a splash of lemon citrus. The flavor is grainy pale malt with slight sweetness, a splash of lemon citrus, hints of spicy hops and not much else. Light to medium body. This was low average at best. marcus (10137) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 29, 2008
This bubbly yellow beer poured with a thin off-white head that disappeared in seconds. There is actually a pretty solid malt base that is fairly tasty. However, this is a beer that is designed for summer thirst quenching, so is a bit thin, but crisp and refreshing.

Pours golden with white head, aroma is a touch of grain, biscuit, with a hint of spice. Much like the summer brew, not much to it, a bit of rye spice, biscuit sweet malt and a clean finish. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2009

Pine hop aroma. Golden coloured hoppy and fruity pine flavour with a crisp and slightly dry malt finish. blipp (9123) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 21, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2009 Bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma has a nice hop/malt balance with caramel and floral notes. Sweet malt flavor with lemon and a touch of hops. Not bad. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2009
Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense GBBF 09. A clear golden coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is quite fruity and poppy with oranges and lemons. The taste is citric and poppy again. Easy drinking but not very beery really. drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Surprisingly smooth and clean considering the style and ingredients. Nice easy drinking summer beer.
