Had to have a summery beer today.
Pour is bright yellow with a thick foamy white head. nice carbonation.
The smell kind of reminds me of Narragansett Summer. I get a light, sweet base beer with a hint of bitter hop. Just a touch of lemon dry hop.
Very light up front. Its super light base malt, with a sharp herbal medicinal hop. Just a bit of lemon and lemon peel, just enough. Very balanced and light feeling, with the medicinal hop going through the finish. Doesnt finish as clean as I expected (which is the only problem I find with the beer).

Color is a golden straw, with an average sized head that fades quickly. The smell wonderfully balanced, reminding me of a fruit cocktail of pears, apples, and peaches. The taste leans toward citrus and floral hops, with a malty sweetness in the background. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, but this is to be expected from a light-bodied summer ale. Makes a great summertime beer; pairs great with a baseball game.

Enjoy by Oct 01 2012
A: Pours a pale golden color with 2 fingers worth of sticky head
S: Some earthy and spicy hops open up, along with pale malts and very light lemon
T: Follows the nose, mostly spicy hops and grassy hops with a nice malty balance and some lemon peel
M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation
O: A good, crisp summer beer that certainly drinks like a blonde but has plenty of flavor. Solid brew

A- Light golden, perfectly clear. Head is big and bone white. Decent retention, with some lacing.
S- Smell is pale malt and noble hops. Very green smelling.
T- Same here, but the hops come through really big. Tastes very herbal and green. Just a hint of sweetness, but the noble hops are the biggest flavor, beginning, middle, and end.
M- Medium-light, smooth carbonation. Quite dry in the finish.
O- This seems like an ale version of Samuel Adams Noble Pils. It's pretty one dimensional on the noble hop flavors, but those are good flavors. A decent to good summer seasonal.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.
A: A yellowish straw color that is slightly murky with a two finger white fluffy head. Minimal glass lacing.
S: Grainy malts, lemon and grassy hops, some yeasty notes.
T: I got the lemon, light fruit and grassy flavors first coupled with some grainy and bready sweeter malts. Some yeast flavors poke through with some pepper and spicyness on the finish. Bitterness is full at the end and it's very dry. It leaves your mouth wanting more.
M: Light to medium, bitter, very dry and no noticeable alcohol. Great drinker.
O: This is a terrific summer beer that is perfect for this time of year. It's complex enough to keep you interested, but simple enough to be able to just sit down and have a few. Very refreshing.
This is a terrific summer beer that I will surely be drinking all summer long. I really liked this one and thankfully it's all over the shelves right now.
