Had some at a friend's cookout in the bottle. Wasn't expecting much from a summer beer, but was surprisingly good... Looks fairly transparent in the bottle.. smells rather grainy and maybe a slight citrus in the smell as well. It tastes of grainy malts and citrusy hops. Overall, light bodied, and goes down rather smoothly.

Overall this is a very good beer for a hot day.

Harpoon Summer Beer has a thick, white head, a clear (but with noticeable powdery specs suspended throughout, picked up under strong light), bubbly appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of somewhat pungent, sourdough bread and a shadow of citrus. Taste is of sourdough bread, fairly strong bitterness, and a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Harpoon Summer Beer finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and drinkable. A bit of alcohol is picked up, oddly.
