Evolution's summer session has a clear golden body with about two fingers of white head that lays down a decent amount of lacing while exhibiting some good retention.

The aroma is very grainy with a hints of hops to it. Slightly musty.

The musty flavor runs the show here, choking out most other things. It isn't a pleasant kind of musty like you might find in a saison either, it's just an off-flavor. After that comes a slight citrus hop bite and a lot of grain. APA? I don't think so, but who knows.

Fairly thick body, with a moderate to low amount of carbonation.

I'm not a fan of this one, that musty flavor ruins the beer; I almost couldn't finish my pint.

Serving type: on-tap

Good carbonation and a light body. Pilsner-like finish. Nothing amazing. drinkable. prefer some of their other offerings. However looking forward to trying on tap in DC soon. smell isn't that appealing. Appearance is a dark straw color with nice streams of bubbles throughout the drinking.
