From 2012. Sweet, citrusy lightweight summer brew. Pour is uneventful, no head and light golden straw color. Good refresher for a hot day. Aroma and taste a bit weak.

Sum'r pours a nearly clear wheat with only a few particulates suspended to give the beer a slight haze. A foamy, bubbly white head rises quickly after a pour, and disappears nearly as quick. Good smattering of lacing left behind. Aroma is light and well-reserved with notes of citrus, pine, and pineapple. A sip opens up a spread of citrus, pine, and herbal hops with a biscuit, subtle malt background. Mouth feel stands in the middle ground between thick and heavy and light and watery. Specifically, it has a bubbly, filling feel. Overall, it's an alright brew without too much going on in any one category.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

2 12 oz. bottles poured into beer glass. Regular pour produced two fingers of pure white head. Nice lacing. Color is cloudy and light golden. Smell is faint to medium with a touch of citrus. Feel is smooth and light, maybe a bit watery. Taste is light and delicious. A slice of lime squeezed in is a really nice touch.

Sum'r is a light tasting, blonde summer ale. Don't expect a rich, heavy taste here with lots of texture. Serve cold on a hot summer day and you'll find it's refreshing and pretty damn easy to drink. Drink this after cutting the grass or while fixing the roof and you may never drink cheap yard beer again.

A true-blue summer blonde, excellently befitting the bottle's label-art: this is meant to quench and enlighten, hand over fist, as one quaffs suds in sweet recline, under the warm glow of an early-afternoon's estival orb. Buoyant, crystal-white head, that subsides quickly to tracings and lacings atop the golden puddle filling the twelve-ounce tulip. Really nice, if mild, lemon and herb-bush bouquet; sunny, sparkling flaxen glow. Easy-sipping, crisp, hint of pale-grainy sweetness; loads of herbaceousness from the hops, with only very mild bitter acids closing up the shop and cutting off any linger; very soft-bodied, clear mouth-feel; solid, though not especially powerful, effervescence.

Very session-minded; quite refreshing; great measured but thorough use of hops to create a blonde with just enough biting characteristics, but all around still subdued in all the right ways. Not the most exciting ale, but a nice six to throw in the cooler and chill on.
