I never expect much from a summer beer, most of them are too thin and watery for my liking, and I figure if it's really that hot out, I'd be drinking water anyway. Southern Tier's Hop Sun is one of the exceptions; a beer that I enjoy drinking, particularly in warmer weather or during cookouts.

It pours a light golden color with moderate head. It smells of lemony hops, and tastes like lemony hops and wheat. It goes down smooth and is refreshing while at the same time not sacrificing on flavor.

Poured into a pint. Very golden in appearance. Smell is citrus/lemon and wheat. Nice taste. A lot of the reviews call this "crisp" and a nice summer beer and I would agree with that, although there is nothing outstanding about it. I will pick it up again sometime on a hot day.
