5/5  rDev +22.9%

Hops: Amarillo.
Malt: 2-row.

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 01.24.14.

A: See through gold. 1 finger head.

S: Grapefruit. Very citrusy.

T: Tangerine dominant. Grapefruit, pine, subtle malt.

M: Crisp. Good carbonation.

O: This is a tangerine bomb. The first time that I had this, I was surprised by the flavor. It's now a summer staple for me.

Delicious. Fremont Brewery nailed this summer pale; not surprising because Seattle does love its craft brews, but overall pleased with a younger brewery being able to produce such a tasty treat. Crisp, light, hoppy, and fresh with a slight nuance of orange.

Had on tap at Elephant & Castle.

A- A light golden yellow.

S- Does have a hoppy floral smell. More of a hoppy to it than I figured for a pale.

T- Bitter at first which I love. Do taste the lemon zest. Not as much hoppy as the smell entails.

M- Crisp, clean, and almost lageish without the lager bite. Great light bodied summer beer. Pairs well with spicy food.

D- Like I said crisp and clean, easy to drink. Pecular to drink a crisp pale, but it works. Well done Fremont!

I bought a bomber of Fremont Summer Ale in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a pale gold color, clear with a few bubbles rising in the glass, and capped by a frothy stark white head.

Smell is sweet and floral, an orange blossom aroma, with some soft fruit scents along side, like pears and honeydew melons.

Taste is a light sweet bread flavor up front, with a hint of pineapple and dry coriander spice finish, and a mildly bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light and clean.

Overall a very tastey and drinkable summer ale. Perfect for a warm August day.

Had this on tap at Collins Pub.

A - Straw yellow, this was served with no real head to speak of. Some nice lacing however, and quite attractive bubbling from the carbonation.

S - Hoppy right off the bat - citrus, floral and a bit of malt in the background. Nice, but fairly mild.

T - This one surprised me in it's depth of flavor, especially given the light color and mild nose. I was expecting a pretty mild pale ale, but this is very nicely hoppy. IPA-like. Very citrusy - lots of grapefruit and lemon zest. Small bit of floral tastes and just a touch of bready malt. Awesome.

M - More typical of the style, this has a light to medium body with a fairly crisp and dry finish. Ever so slightly resiny.

D - Very nice - this was surpassed my expectations by quite a bit. Given that I ordered it without knowing the style, I was surprised at the depth of flavor and the high level of hops. Impressive, and would not hesitate to order this again.

Review from 6/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a golden yellow amber. Half finger head dissipates to a thin film leaving lacing. Aromatic hops noticeable on opening the bottle; aroma of aromatic hops and citrus, faint malt. Flavor is mild to moderate hops, a light malt body and citrus. Finishes with citrus and a moderate hop kick. Very nicely done. Definitely the nicest pale ale I've had. Bravo
