Clear light straw color pour with thin white head with a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is a nice balance of bready malt and grassy hops with some faint citrus notes. Flavor is nicely balanced as well, light maltiness without being "sweet" and some light grassy hop flavor without being "bitter". I’m not typically a fan of these lighter summer brews, but this one is pretty good. It’ll be no problem enjoying a couple of these after some yard work this summer.

Pours a lovely clear gold color with two fingers of head. Smells primarily of floral hops and a slight sweet malt presence, very clean smelling. Tastes of floral hops, breadiness, and light grass and citrus. Extraordinarily refreshing with a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly. This is a good summer/session beer, great on a hot day.

hotstuff (5210) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Rated on 6-16-2017. The appearance of this draft beer is a very small white head that is mostly lasting, hazy pale yellow body, no carbonation observed, and a good amount of lacing adorns the glass. The aroma is light citrus, earthy, lightly fruity, sweet, and bready malt. The flavor presents light bitterness, lightly citrus, sweet, and bready malt. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer that overall is so-so for the style. It is a beer that I would consider drinking again.

JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Straw color with a taller, white head. Very pale malts and light citric scents. Light hints of roses and resin. Decent lace. Light sweet start that leads to some citric and mild spice. I agree with the name. This is a easy drinking summer ale. Finish is fairly dry with a bit of herbal hops and slight acidity to clean things. 5/12

Can’t say much for this. Bottle into a Pilsner glass. Pours pale yellow with big white head that slowly dissipates. Not much aroma but what there is is wheat. Not much taste but what there is bread and lemon and fairly bitter. Not a bad beer and probably would do well in a cooler at a softball game certainly nothing I would go looking for.

ajnepple (6840) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2015
12 oz single bottle into a pilsner glass, best by 10/19/15, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Bright gold and clear in appearance with a fluffy, lingering, lacy white head and active carbonation. Aroma of toasted grain, light bread, mild citrus zest and light floral hops. Similar flavor, crisp, mild hop bitterness balanced by a light malt sweetness. Light to medium body with ample carbonation and a light husky grain finish. Not too bad considering its age.

3.5
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a one finger fizzy white head with nice retention. The nose is light and delicate with just a bit of breadiness and some minimal floral hops. The flavor is rather light, but quite clean and delicate with just a gentle hoppiness on the finish. This is very easy drinking and enjoyable. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a fairly short finish. Pretty good stuff, way exceeded expectations.
