I was not a fan of Summit's Summer Ale, even though most are. Just not my taste.

What a disappointment. Here's why: I LOVE SUMMIT. And having such high expectations led me to expect too much from this incredibly mediocre brew.

Grabbing on of these guys and popping it open, pouring it into my pint glass was a nice experience. Downhill from there.

The smell is fine.

The taste starts off alright, crisp and refreshing. But the aftertaste is like licking a rusty piece of metal. Strong, unpleasant metallic tastes linger still (5 minutes since last sip)

The mouthfeel was ok because it was refreshing, but kind of gross at the same time, much like taking a swim with a bunch of hairy old men.

Overall, it did its job but nothing more. Definitely wont buy again, although I remain a fan of summit's other brews.

poured into a clean pint glass

Appearance: Very light, golden in color lots of carbonation, very small head with good lacing

Smell: Almost no smell, very faint hops with no discernible malt.

Taste: Very light, slight hop but barely noticeable

Mouth feel: Very thin but goes down smooth.

Overall: Slightly above average beer. Goes down really easy. Not much taste however. I assume that this is true to the style after reading the description. This is my first experience with this style.
