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.
