look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear, very light straw colour with a thin white head that quickly fades.

Smell is of light malt, lemony citrus, and faintly floral esters. Taste is sour and citric, a tad spicy, and slightly tart. Fairly thin body and mouthfeel gives way to a slightly bitter and dry finish.

This is a great hot weather quencher. It's 90+ here today, and this was just what the doctor ordered! More please.

4.31/5  rDev +34.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass. The beer is a hazy faded apricot color. A light frothy white head sits on top and dissipates to a few random patches of bubbles. Lacing is light and minimal. The beer smells fresh and of lemongrass and faint citrus. The taste is bright and clean. The sharp, citrus notes are up front but do not dominate. Subdued malt presence with lemon and orange notes. Very clean. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a crisp finish.

Overall, this is a very fresh summer beer. Great for grilling, or sitting on the deck all night. Low ABV. I love it as my Summer go-to.

I have had Breckenridge beer before. I loved their Christmas Ale and wanted to try their summer beer.

It's a rather nice looking beer, not much head though.
Smell is pleasant with a faint aroma.
Taste is very good, possibly a bit of lemon.
Not much aftertaste. A nice beer for hot days.

Mouthfeel is good. A good bit of carbonation and goes down very smooth.

This is a very drinkable summer beer. Although I like the Christmas beer better, I could easily drain a six pack on a hot summer day.
