A: Bright, clear gold color. Poured a 2 finger stark white head that dissipated to an even skim. Laced the glass in medium rings with occasional legs down the glass.

S: Lemongrass and citrus zest hit the nose up front. Sweet with some bread notes as the beer warmed a little.

T: Just like the nose with big lemongrass and citrus throughout. Crisp, refreshing and fairly balanced as there is a lemony sweetness that lingers through a very light bitter.

M: Light body. Ample carbonation. Crisp, clean and refreshing.

O: Very drinkable and refreshing. More than a couple, the lemon may wear me out. Very manageable ABV.

Picked up a bottle of this one in Boulder yesterday, and am really enjoying it. Poured a light golden color with a significant white head. Nice aromas of citrus and lemongrass. On the palate, this one is light and refreshing, with light biscuit and a big lemony finish.

6 pack from Roths Sunnyside Market in S.Salem. $7.99 Bright yellow beer with a largish frothy white head. Nice lemon grass and peach like aromas..very refreshing. Taste is very lemony..tart not sweet and also get nectarine like flavours ( yuzu ?)..light malts and no discernable hopping. Low carbonation actually works with the sweetness. Overall a very simplistic summer drinker. I did like it though..first 70 + degree day here.

Just released in six packs as the new Summer seasonal. OG 10.5, IBU's 19 according to the Bridgeport Brewing Co. website. Listed on the package as "Bright Ale". "Ale brewed with lemongrass with yuzu fruit juice added." Poured in a Stella Artois glass.

A: Big creamy white head with some staying power. Clean filtered golden color with carbonation galore. Medium lacing as the drink goes down.

S: Whoa! A strong scent of lemongrass and big citrus fruit. Smells intriguing, but I'm proceeding with caution.

T: Certainly some citrus fruit coming through. A pretty clean tasting brew really though. Maybe I'm too used to the Bridgeport yeast or something, but despite the newness there is something familiar here.

M: A clean light mouthfeel with a slightly chewy aftertaste.

O: These guys change their seasonal stuff all the time lately it seems. Not my favorite summer fruit beer. I'll miss Haymaker.
