Clear, pale gold with 1 inch white head that diminishes quickly to a small rim with mold lacing.

Mild malt aroma with citrus and a bit of spicy hops and hint of fruity esters.

Taste is bread malt with moderate bitterness with pine and citrus notes. Crisp, smooth aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light to medium body with no detectable ethanol warmth.

Very good light-bodied ale with a crisp smooth finish.

I grabbed two cases of beer today one being boulder mojo which I had before and another being harpoon friday full fridge variety pack. I want to try the shandy. I only had it in the fridge for about 40 minutes so I didn't want to try something unfamiliar and it be too warm. Tried harpoon summer beer its light crisp and refreshing :)

A - poured a two-fingers thick off-white head into a weizen glass that left great sheeting and lacing throughout. The body was a bright and bubbly golden color.
S - grainy, cool, lemon.
T - lemon and grainy. Hint of metallic finish.
M - crisp and coating.
O - been a while since I've had this one and I'm glad I revisited it.

Harpoon Summer Beer. What a good one. I have drank a lot of these. They are refreshing and tasty. Available in bottles and cans, it is a great go-to beer for the beach, the lake, the park, the backyard, cooking in the kitchen, watching Popeye in the living room, sneaking into the movies, walking around town, getting drunk in a fancy restaurant, drinking in a dive bar, playing foosball, hiding out in a treehouse, camping in the middle of nowhere, anywhere. Great beer. Summer is a good season overall too.
