I poured a 12 ounce bottle into a lager glass. Born on date was March 2012, tasted in November.
A: Clear, straw yellow color with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly.
S: Crisp aroma with hints of grass and melon
T: Mild with a refreshing grassy taste that a short aftertaste. Moderate hops for a lager-style beer. There is a slight mustiness that may be related to age.
M: Light-bodied with very little finish.
Overall, this was a more refreshing, crisp, hoppy beer than I expected. The quick finish left something to be desired, but an easy-drinking summer cold beer as the name suggests.

Presentation: 12oz brown pop top, simple Schlafly label. "Bottled with love" on 6/18/12. Into a tulip pint.
Appearance: Bright medium gold beer with a stark white cap with decent retention. Medium to medium-high, steady carbonation. Nice looking beer.
Smell: Cold, this smells like it might include adjuncts (corn), but the website says it's all malt (American 2-row, European Pils, and Carapils). As it warms, you get some pleasant (if light) grainy malt and a bit of floral Noble hop aroma. Light and delicate, but pleasant.
Taste: Light grainy malt and floral, fruity hops. Delicate, if firm, crisp hop bitterness on the finish. Somewhere between a bit richer German helles lager and a 'premium' American macro-lager. Light flavor, but pleasant, delicate flavors, unlike the macros, and certainly with a bit more hop presence.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, almost snappy.
Overall: Nice, light, easy-going thirst-quencher for your summer. Also, this may be the ideal 'pizza' beer for discerning beer drinkers. I'll definitely pick up a sixer or two of this next summer as well.
