Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
We wanted to create a beer with the same distinct crispness and color that you get in the days of early summer. Using a dry-hopping technique, hops are not only added to the brew kettle, but also included in the aging tank, giving the specialty beer its distinct and crisp hop aroma. The choice selection of pale and caramel roasted barley malt gives this beer its deep golden color that looks great in a glass.

Had this on tap at a bar in South Haven and I had no idea it was an Anheuser product until looking it up here. Bright clear yellow color with a thick foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves no remnants of its being there. Aroma is somewhat spicy, almost tangy (like the juice) with a straight pale malt dryness. Taste is similar to aroma. I noticed an adjunct flavor that didn't dominate but it didn't leave the palate either. Slight spice and tang with a cereal like aspect. A bit muddled really and although not sweet, it seemed cloying by the end of the glass. Odd, not really enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap
