2.35/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Slightly hazed yellow-gold with fine, steady carbonation. The crown is a shade darker than pure white, is semi-stiff and a little chunky. It subsides fairly quickly and leaves mere wisps of lace. The nose is mildly earthy hoppy more than citrusy, but I can pick out the lemon.

Flavor and mouthfeel are a letdown. The flavor is inoffensive as far as it goes. Summer Brew has a lemony, slightly hoppy vibe that falls apart roughly two seconds after beer enters mouth. The whole shootin' match then deflates into a one-dimensional, watery muddle that, thankfully, doesn't linger.

I like the idea of a relatively light, crisp, lemony, summertime lager and would love to find one. I didn't find it in Pete's Wicked Summer Brew, though. Not even close.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Yellow beer, lots of haze, unexpectedly. White head, frothy. Aroma, more like spring, that lemon fresh laundry scent.

Taste, surprisingly bitter, the zesty hop feel pops its head up but quickly fades into a dry mouthfeel. One dimensional, but I see people far worse stuff around the pool or ballfield. Think of it as a palate cleanser.

Reviewed from some more old notes. Pete's Summer poured out a clear, fizzy, golden yellow color with a two-finger, white head of foam. It actually left some sudsy lace. It smelled of lemon, grains and some caramel malt. Lemon flavor dominated to a bad degree. It had a grainy flavor with some mild caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is good. It was crisp and sharp with a dry finish. Overall, the lemon flavor was overbearing and made it tough to drink.

A: Poured a pale yellow color, with a thin white head.

S: On the nose was some lemons/ citrus. moderatly boring and moderate in strength.

T: light, with a moderately redeeming flowery hop tang from the tettnanger. There was some light lemongrass notes lingering but is the fresh flowery hopping of the tettnanger that gives this some credibility. Finishes dry and crisp but rather bland overall flavor wise.

M: dry, light with a slight creaminess.

D: average at best if not a little below. like drinking a macro-lawnmower beer that one doesn't expect to much from.

pours with a decent head, some slight lemon and honey in the nose ... pours a murky golden colour .. taste shows some of the age, but does have some nice honey flavours... lacing is quite nice too ... for the $2 i paid for this sixer a good deal, but this beer is done...

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Light color of straw/yellow. Foamy head, not much to it to hold it long. I guess it isn't bad looking but if a beer is lighter, I want to see a head hold on it longer.

Smells like a summer beer. Light and citrusy with pronounced lemon and a little, very little spice.

Also pretty light in the taste but there are some nice hops in there with the lemon again. No need to add any zest into this one.

Feels good in your mouth. Not too tingly or spicy at all. Easy to drink more than one and not too filling.

For a summer beer, it fits the season and is better than your average lawnmowing beer. Refreshes well but is not a session beer by any means. Hot and sweaty and don't want a macro? Try this one.

And it has the cool baseball motiff.

This one was a yellow brew with a short foamy head that died rather quickly. A bit of a disappointing presentation.

The aroma was of aromatic hops and lemons. Lemon was very pronounced.

The taste was initially quite hoppy, although not bitter, then a lemon aftertaste.

This one was OK. Straight average.
