Southwedge is a clear, light-straw beer with two fingers of white head in a pint glass.

Some light bread notes are followed by straw, leather, banana and coriander with a touch of bitterness. The tap version had a much more pleasant aroma, and was the reason for this purchase. The growler seriously impacted this characteristic. Possibly I got one that was about to spoil. What a shame.

A nice grain flavor is overly sweet with a pinch of coriander followed by lingering, mild bitterness.

This is a light, to medium-bodied beer with soft carbonation.

Southwedge Summer Ale is easily consumable with friends on a hot afternoon.

I will look for this again, and take notes on the tap version, in the restaurant.

Rohrbach South Wedge Summer Ale is a cloudy light golden ale with a fluffy white head. It has a strange aroma, like vegetables and spices. It smells like maybe a vegetable stew that's been sitting out for a while. It has a smooth medium-light body with a crisp finish. The flavor is mellow, with notes of lemon, banana bread and raisin bread. It is spicy, simple, clean and light.

A - A very light blonde color. No haze in the glass very clear and light colored.

S - I know some people may not like the flavored brews, but the smell of this one is really good. Lemon and lime flavors jump right into your nose. No realy hoppiness comes in, just the fruit flavors.

T - Like drinking a beer version of Sprite. But good. This beer does exactly what the brewer intended, enjoyed on a summer day or night

M - Not tough to hold in the mouth. Very smooth and goes down very easy.

D - This is a great beer to enjoy with some friend who are not ready to get into the beer tasting. The dark atmosphere of Rohrbach's can dampen your experience of this beer. So, grab a growler, get outseide and enjoy.

Very lemony, refreshing and crisp. Lemon aroma from the extract was smoothly added, a bit too carbonated for my personal taste. I think this should be clasified as a fruit beer and that it does appeal to those who like fruit beers. As I wanted to save room for my favorite styles Jim McDermott the brewmaster brews and was glad I did. Every bar it seems have these flavored lagers, and this is it.
