3.93/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
cold 12oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance - Crystal clear and light gold color, not much head development or retention at all, not much lacing to speak of
Smell - Crisp and clean scent...flowery and a bit herbal. Slight biscuit and grain goodness
Taste/Mouthfeel - Tingly carbonation, medium/light body, smooth and refreshing! Taste is more of the flowery/herbal hops action, mixed with nice, clean biscuity malts. Slight hit of fruity sweetness, but finish is decidedly dry with low bitterness.
Overall - Though not attractive in the glass by any means, this is a tasty and refreshing brew, and is aptly named as it would be perfect on a hot summer day. I'll definitely come back to this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
This one pours a pure and filtered gold with a thin short lived white head that has no lacing of note.
The nose is is sweet with peppery spicy, some citrus and moderate hops. There are mild notes of floral and fruit as well
The flavor is dry malt with some biter-sweet hops that has a sweet finish. a light refreshing beer that is good but not great and has an acceptable bitter finish.
The mouthfeel is a bit watery but acceptable.
Overall a drinkable beer but nothing special.
