Bought a single bottle from AJ's Beer Warehouse sometime in July 2015. Served in a pint glass. Clear lemon yellow, snow white head, nice lacing. Faint aroma of lemon zest Bready malts with some faint citric bitterness. Mouthfeel is solid and smooth. Kind of generic but tasty. Wouldn't turn one down.

This pours a semi-cloudy yellow color with a thick, frothy head. The aroma is weaker with a hint of wheat and citrus. The flavor is on the weak side, not a whole lot going on. Very smooth and easy drinking though. I would have figured a craft beer like this would have more flavor.

Appearance – Poured a pale straw in color with the slightest amount of haze. Very little head with no lacing

Smell – Sweet hay and white bread are the predominate smells given off by this beer. A little funk given of by the hops, but very mellow.

Taste – Crisp, clean, and sweet. Very grainy throughout with hints of corn. There was a bit of citrus flavor (lime) throughout, though it is most noticeable in the finish.

Mouthfeel – Honestly it was very thin and the hops used gave the beer a bit of astringency. The beer was very carbonated adding to the thin texture.

Bust out the sunglasses; summer is here! Sum'R from a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

Two finger's worth of head sits on top this light golden beer. Retention on top is satisfying. It smells clean, grassy, with a kiss of lemon and light grain. Living up to the conjured image of a summer beer, Sum'R is light, thirst quenching, and packs modest flavor. Flavors of citrus, honey, and grass hit the palate, and riding a light yet gently carbonated body, helps make Sum'R a beer that is made for warm weather.

Decent beer. No real smell or strong taste. Slight lime finish. Decent for a hot day when you might pound a few.

Funky yellow color, not much aroma. A balanced summer drinker with a touch of citrus (lime).
