probably the best ballpark beer I've ever had. Enough taste to move it out of the massprolag catagory, but also easy drinkin with nice citrus notes and a solid hop background.
Love this beer.
First sip is sweet, but the aftertaste brings out the sourness of the fruit. The beer really morphs in your mouth. There's a little malt profile there to balance things out, but this beer is really dam^ tasty.
Could make this a lawnmower staple.
this really lives up to the name as it's light enough for summer, malty enough for fall, and hoppy enough for spring... would like to try this on tap.

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
