3.53/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Translucent straw with a bubbly white head.

Aroma: Getting that funky lager yeast smell. A little malt and a hint of citrus from the hops.

Taste: Typical craft brewed pilsener. Bready with a small hop bite. Getting some corn or other adjunct in there but it isn't exactly out of place in this style. There's nothing really bad to say about this one but nothing incredibly positive to say either.

Mouthfeel: At the lower end of medium bodied. Nice level of carbonation. Goes down pretty smooth. Above average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: I'm not sure this beer deserves the status of being a year-round brew by Summit. It does the job but definitely doesn't leave me wanting more. However, this beer is never out of place at a summer picnic or backyard barbecue.

Poured into a pint glass.
Cloudy yellow. Lots of lacing.
Smells like malt and grass.
Tastes like a typical pilsner, very smooth. Hop bite at the end.
I like this beer but it's nothing to write home about. The Summit sampler is a bargain at 14.50 however.
Would have again.
