4.1/5 rDev +8.2%
A- Cloudy copper with just a hint of a white head that fades quickly to a few bubbles.
S- Not a whole lot, a little bit of honey and citrus.
T- A pleasant mixture of citrusy hops, sweet malt and wheat, and a refreshingly bitter finish. Hop Sun is a pretty apt name, it's a little like drinking liquid sunshine.
M- Creamy but moderately thin with a low carbonation. Works well with the sweet and hoppy balance.
O- A really nice beer. I haven't cared much for ST in the past but this one hits the spot, even a few months after its peak.

2.83/5 rDev -25.3%
12oz bottle into a Weizen glass
A: Pours a crystal clear, light straw yellow with just under 1 fingers width of bright white colored head. Head dissipates fairly quickyl and leaves effectively no lacing. Looks like an AAL, only brighter. Blah.
S: Fair amount of spice, a touch of wheat, lots of adjunct-y flavors, a hint of vinegar-like harshness. Yuk.
T: Very mild. Some spice, citrusy hops, and wheat. Again some adjunct-like flavors. Not a lot going on here, but I like the interplay of hops and wheat.
M/D: Light bodied, fair amount of carbonation, drinkability is good as is expected with such a light offering.
O: Overall, its meh. I'd probably never purchase this again, but its better than your standard Bud, Miller, Coors.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.
Appearance: The beer pours a clear golden color with an amber hue. There is a half finger of off white head that goes away almost completely.
Smell: Very mild. Getting a bit of sweetness from the grain. Reminds me of a pils.
Taste: Very light and slightly sweet. I'm picking up the light grains as well as some pilsner like malt. The finish is slightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a good amount of foamy carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: Very light and crisp. Definitely reminds me of a pilsner. I might have another given the chance.
