A Summer beer that delivers. Pours a beautiful cloudy amber with nice lacing from a tan head. Good aroma of honey and lemon. Maybe a touch thin on the palate, but exceptionally smooth all the way through. Honey sweetness with just a touch of citrus zest. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable.

hazy gold, no head, no lace. nose is mild sweet malt, perhaps some honey. flavor is mild sweet malt, perhaps some honey. medium bodied, dry finish. known world-wide as the beer that has the smell and taste of mild sweet malt, perhaps some honey. one dimensional. bottle courtesy of cornfield.

Bought cheap at the local supermarket, which is not and will not be listed in Places! It pours a golden orange body with a short-lived white head. No lace. It has an unchecked sweet aroma, bready malt with old honey, including a bit of beeswax. The flavor, too, is bready and it has the stale sweetnes of honey. Glad it was cheap.

pours a very cloudy orange with visible chunks of sediment. Very slight sweet smell to it. The taste is just... this beer has to be skunked, but given the other beers by this brewery, it could just be the normal taste. It’s like stale honey with some bitter hop aftertaste. Another sub-par beer from a sub-par brewery.

Horrible beer with a thick milk like body. Cheap taste and reminds me more of food than beer. Skip this at all costs

Found this one bottled at my local Osco liquor store in St. Charles, Illinois. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a thick white head. Timid nose, just a touch of malty sweetness and candy apple. Bready but watery, with a smooth, balanced finish. I see what they are doing, but I’m pretty indifferent about the results.

Bottle - Thanks BuckDich. Pours a sunset golden with a small, short lived white head. Nose of citrus hops, wheat, and malt. Flavor is smooth with maltiness and a little citrus. Rather sweet. The "crisp finish" is fairly mute.

Semi cloudy orange gold with minimal short lived head. Aroma is faint hence the lower rating. Mild grain with some honey sweetness and faint citrus. Mouth feel is watery but goes down quick and smooth. Just don’t let this get much warmer than fridge temps. Decent enough for what it is which is basically a Grocery Store lawn Mower beer. Better than BMC. Price about $6 a six. Have not seen it in 12’ers

Thin, watery, sweet. I dont get how this is 3.3 avg? This is better than the light however.

Unfiltered, dirty orange coloured beer, nice sized frothy white head. Aroma is rather weak,slightly cirtic ,but quite bready, not horrible. Some wheatiness in the flavour and a good semi-sweet honey tone, sweetness gives way at the end to a slight graininess. I actually liked the palate on this one, it felt full and smooth, and not to cloying. Actually not that bad of a summer beer, had far worse.

Bottle: Meh, thin, light head and lacing. Very light smell, some stale starch. A bit of husk in the flavor, which is about all the flavor this one gives up. There’s a lot better summer beers for your money.
