Appearance - Copper, clear ale with a persistent, thin head and many, small bubbles.

Smell - Smells a little malty-sweet. Nothing special here.

Taste - Unfortunately, tastes like an adjunct lager, but without the adjunct.

Mouthfeel - Nice, light but full mouthfeel.

Overall - Disappointing, but still an acceptable summer session beer that I would pick over the Millers of the world.

Another canned beer courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can/ Has a dark golden/light brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of malts, a bit of lemons as well. Taste is bready, malty, some muild lemon, refreshing and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, kind of lacks the wheat zing and tartness for the style, but an enjoyable beer none the less.

Can, sampled at the Beer Yard, Wayne, PA.

Free sample, so whatever. Slightly hazed coppery pour, with a foamy white head. Lots of toasted wheat and grains in the nose, subtle citrus. In the taste, crackery malts, toasted wheat, some chewy orange pulp, coriander and pepper--pretty sure this was made with grains of paradise a la Sam Adams Summer Lager, hence the name. Light-medium body, and a bit chewy. Lacking the crispness I'd prefer in a summer-anything beer. Not necessarily undrinkable, but just not my style.

This beer pours out as a Clear looking golden copper color. The head was strong for a bit and leave a surprising amount of lacing on the glass. The smell is light but it has elements of wheat and some fruit sweetness on the nose. The taste reminded me of something like a softer version of #9. The flavors of apricot and orange take up most of the flavors in this beer. The mouthfeel is soft and not overly carbonated. Overall it's a pretty nice summer brew.
