A: Brilliant, clear golden beer with lots of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. The head is white and frothy, with a good amount of lacing and retention.
S: Aromas include floral hops, soft malts and a light fruitiness.
T: The taste is crisp, with a lightly bitter hop character, balanced by very subtle malts.
M: A light body and high carbonation make this a refreshing drink. The finish is dry with some lingering bitterness.
O: All in all, a good summer brew from Alaskan Brewing.
Thanks to Cyberkedi for this one

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.
