Pours a cloudy light beige. Carbonation is average and light. Very little lace at all here.
Nose says spices -- a little clove and a touch of orange. Not bad.
Taste is likewise spiced, with a hint of lemony hops near the finish. I get a cloying sweetness that hurts the balance, though.
It may be light in body (and thus tailor-made for summer), but this one's unremarkable and not one I'd revisit.

A-Clear straw yellow, no carbonation, one finger head that doesn't last.
S-Ehh, some straw/wheat not much else, toast and some yeast. Just not much flavor.
T-Straw, wheat, yeast nothing else. No bitterness, no hops.
M-Light, not much carbonation and watery.
O-A bland boring, no reason to buy it beer. Maybe someone would like it in the summer but this beer is avoidable.

While not as flavorful as their Half Court IPA, Lost River Summer is a good beer. It is has a high drink-ability, but without the watery flavor and blandness of other highly drinkable beers (ie: standard American Lagers). The taste, though not as rich as Half-Court, is still quite round and three-dimensional.

Easily drinkable and great for any day, especially on a hot summer day. Craft Brew Heads may not be too interested in it but if you're wanting to take the leap from the main stream to a craft brew this is definitely one to try. Overall I like it but it wouldn't be my first choice in deciding on a beer to drink.

I classified this as an American Blonde Ale as it only says Summer Ale on the bottle and couldn't find info on their webpage. It seems the closest.
Pours a pale color with a very small white head and lots of bubbles.
Smells of yeasty toasty malts. Hard to detect many hops in the nose, but maybe a bit of spiciness.
A little bit of spiciness hits the palate at first and then rounds into a yeasty malt character at the end. Finishes a bit dry. The only knock is a slight funkiness in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is pretty light with high carbonation. Just what I would expect from this style.
Pretty decent beer. Nothing special, but a solid easy drinking beer and the price is right ($3.69 a bomber when I picked it up) to make this a go too summer beer when I'm craving something local and lighter.
