UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Aroma is of light pumpkin spice. Taste is heavy with cinnamon and other spices. However has a dull watered-down pumpkin flavor, a little skunky.

Aroma is a bit weak. Taste is just your bland malty light beer. Overall just OK.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2017 Cerveja com um pequeno amargor que não permanece na boca. Muito leve e refrescante. Vale a pena!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Not much of a nose. Clear, golden appearance is present with a thin, white head. No lacing at all is there. There’s a slight lemon taste coupled with the distinct wheat flavor. Even though it’s an ale, it reminded me of a golden lager (Upscale Miller High Life maybe). Cheers!

High quality beer. Really enjoyed it, went down smooth. Smells absolutely amazing. Never really expect much out of a summer ale to be honest but I would drink this delicious mothafucka year round ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank on a dock in Maine over Labor Day weekend, so I’m pretty sure I had it in its optimal condition. Slightly hard to nail the flavor down on this one -- it tastes spiced, even though it isn’t, and it’s clean and light like a lager, even though it’s an ale. Probably best not to overthink this one -- I didn’t love it, but it was cold on a hot day.

Can from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Hazy orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, a tad citrus element. Taste is hops for sure, with fruits and citrus. A tad unbalanced and lemony in the finish. Okay.

From a can: pours the way it looks in that there picture. Aroma is light fruitiness and bread. Taste is bready. Lightly hopped and kind of fruity. Pretty meh.

Drank from a can. Hints of spice, citrus, orange, biscuit. Refreshing, watery to light oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a brassy golden color capped by a large rocky white head. Fragrant lemony wheat nose. Flavor upfront is fruity wheat malt. Has hints of citrus, banana and vanilla. Tart citrus malt in middle. Grassy hops in finish. Another ho-hum Summertime America Wheat. Nothing special.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a hazy copper color with a white head and lacing. The aroma is spice and fruit. The taste is lemon, wheat, banana, spice, and earthy. This was a decent and standard summer ale. There wasn’t anything really interesting about it. It was enjoyable enough though.
