A: The Summer Ale was a cloudy honey color. There was a thick white head on top that lasted for a long time.
S: The smell was good but not that interesting- an equal amount of malt and piney hops.
T: The taste was an improvement from the aroma. The sweetness and bitterness were well balanced, and I could taste the lemon peel. The citrus flavor was in the background, and I think that was a good choice. There was a faint spiciness to the beer that might have been the grains of paradise, but I don't know what that spice tastes like and couldn't identify it.
M: The beer had a creamy head and light/medium thickness in the body. The mouthfeel was just right for the style and flavor of the beer.
O: Overall, I really liked this beer. I wouldn't treat Summer Ale as a special beer to drink when celebrating something, but it tastes good and is easy to drink. This is an excellent beer to drink during hot summers.
