look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Color is a clear amber, lots of evident carbonation in the beer, pours a half finger of frothy head that retains very well.

Smell; Aroma is nice but somewhat lacking. Very subtle traces of lemon zest and toast.

Taste- wildly complex, the taste is a melody of caramel, rye bread, toast, lemon zest, apples and flowers.

Mouthfeel- Body is light/ medium, high carbonation, slightly creamy yet very light, which makes for some amazing contrast.

Overall- Outstanding summer beer, will buy again many times over. (522 characters)

Summer Ale or not this brew is very much Northeast style, assertive in all of the right places but very well balanced. Hint of buttery character for good measure, not that it gets in the way. From a touch of caramel to toasted grain, light citrus rind hop to fruit yeast, this beer has its share of depth.

12 ounce can enjoyed on good ol Long Island...

Pours typical looking lighter amber, under a moderate and short lived head. leaves a fine film, thin collar and minor scattered bits of lace.

Toasted malt nose

Bready, malty brew...tastes like an English pale or mild...def a decent sessioner....nothing amazing but a decent drinking and on the malty side lighter ale....cant go to wrong with a few of these on a lazy summer afternoon (436 characters)

Pours a golden honey brown, slightly hazy. The cream colored head is big and pillowy and slowly settles into a puffy cap with some webby lacing on the side of the glass.

The aroma has a light toasted grain scent; a touch bready. There seems to be a hint of tart lemon. Not bad but nothing exciting.

The taste is of a bready malt. Some toasted notes. A light sour note. Perhaps from lemon perhaps from something other. General fruitiness and grassy hop notes. Kind of reminds me of an English pale ale.

Moderate feel with tingly carbonation. Good balance between sweet and the grassy bitter finish. Drinks well.

A very average brew, kind of boring. It drinks well but doesn't really remind me of a summer ale. (712 characters)

a buddy of mine has been raving about "the little blue can" as he likes to call it so i had to see what the hub bub was about. enjoyed side-by-side with a greenport harbor summer ale both in pint glasses.

a- brew pours a nice rich amber orange compared to the straw yellow greenport harbor brew, both had a nice frothy foamy cap that had nice staying power and left chunks of lace.

s - nose is toasted bready malt...very grainy. deeper and richer than the greenport but both are fairly identical.

t/m/o - taste is very heavy grain. all malt and has an awkward finish. some lemon around the graininess...but lacks any real character. kinda just like a brand x no frills JUST beer kinda beer. left a lot to be desired for me. (733 characters)

Better option at 7-11. Seen at Stop and Shop in Green. $9.99/6

Real nice /great beer. Has little / no aroma , which is nice. Has the slightest of Grains of Paradise, coriander, maybe some biscuit malt as well. but super sub t le. SWMBO loves this. great mouth feel & enough body but sessionable even with the 5.6 abv. On 3rd now and it is spring. looks like a summer staple to go along w/ summer session... I'm starting to really like these guys..(even though not a driftwood fan) (481 characters)

I may have gotten an old six pack. Will try again and edit if that's the case. (78 characters)
