The beer poured a golden color with a thin bone white head. The nose was of a typical lager brew; pale malts, bitter hops, and not much else. The taste was decent. There is a bit of lemon zest here. I guess this is supposed to be the "summer" flavor they are going for. Anyway, the mouthfeel was a little much for me, but it drank well. This is not one that I will buy alone. I just happened to pick it up in a Pete's sample pack.

Petes Wicked Ales were some of the first craft/non-Bud style beers that started me on the road to realy good beer. This one has a light golden yellow color with a small soapy white head which fades out quickly. There is not much in the aroma except a very mild cereal like gain with a faint citrus like hops in the background. This is exactly what my tongue picks up on in the flavor which comes on a light thin palate. Overall it was just an easy drinking so so beer.

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...
