2011 Summerfest. Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass, the beer is an insanely light, pale, bright yellow coloring that is slightly hazed, and the beer doesn't have a lick of head whatsoever. The nose is toasty, with some citrus and honey highlights. The beer's flavors are toasty, with lemon zest highlights and a very light spicing of clove. Decent flavors riding a light, crisp body. The aftertaste is more of the citrus and spice, with an effervescent feel to it. The beer has a clean, crisp finish. Great, light beer for hot days, with decent flavors compared to most of the style.
