Served in a pint glass at Cambridge Common.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger puffy head that reduced to a smaller layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and bubbles can be seen coming up through the glass. Super nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemony, citrusy, bready and sweet pale malts.

Taste: Same as above with some tingly bitterness and the lemon and citrus hop characteristics are awesome you.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, crisp, refreshing, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty solid APWA from the North Shore. I will definitely look forward to more of these brews.

Riverwalk's Screendoor Summer Ale is certainly a seasonal New England Treat. Far lighter than most beers as flavorful as this, and with an ABV of 5.5%, their is no reason not to enjoy two or three glasses of this wonderfully well-crafted beer.

I am surprised a beer as citrus-rich and hoppy as this is not an IPA, as it is reminiscent to me of Maine Beer Co.'s Dinner IPA; however it is far lighter.

Screendoor Summer pours a healthy orange color with a foamy head which dissipates quickly. It has a citrus-forward, dank flavor with just the right amount of carbonation.

This is a beer to be enjoyed by beer drinkers of all preferences. My sister, who prefers fruity and shandy type beers enjoyed this, as did my father, a Miller-Lite man. I tend to prefer hoppy and citrus-rich IPAs; however I found this Ale to be an excellent choice for a nice summer day on the water.

If you have the opportunity, I strongly recommend you try this beer. Cheers!
