A beer with Summer written all over it, granted its in the name, this is a lager like experience. It's attributes are straight wheat bread, cracker and dough with a dry refreshing feel. This style is never overly diverse but this ale is strong in flavor and aroma. Very good hot weather quencher.

Serving type: on-tap

Drank out of can and also poured into a spiegelau glass.

A - Golden honey look with a slight bit of haze, but not much cloudiness at all.

S - lemon citrus aroma - light wheat

t- more wheat with slight citrus taste.

M - light body

O - easy summer sipper. Somewhere between shandy and wheat ale but leaning more to ale side.

Serving type: can

Just short of "outstanding", this is still an excellent brew. Its clean and smooth, the color is true to the name, and the lemon peel gives it enough character to come back for more. I'd prefer the Summer Bright over a Leinenkugel any day.
