Pours a cloudy light beige. Carbonation is average and light. Very little lace at all here.

Nose says spices -- a little clove and a touch of orange. Not bad.

Taste is likewise spiced, with a hint of lemony hops near the finish. I get a cloying sweetness that hurts the balance, though.

It may be light in body (and thus tailor-made for summer), but this one's unremarkable and not one I'd revisit.

I classified this as an American Blonde Ale as it only says Summer Ale on the bottle and couldn't find info on their webpage. It seems the closest.

Pours a pale color with a very small white head and lots of bubbles.

Smells of yeasty toasty malts. Hard to detect many hops in the nose, but maybe a bit of spiciness.

A little bit of spiciness hits the palate at first and then rounds into a yeasty malt character at the end. Finishes a bit dry. The only knock is a slight funkiness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is pretty light with high carbonation. Just what I would expect from this style.

Pretty decent beer. Nothing special, but a solid easy drinking beer and the price is right ($3.69 a bomber when I picked it up) to make this a go too summer beer when I'm craving something local and lighter.

A-Clear straw yellow, no carbonation, one finger head that doesn't last.

S-Ehh, some straw/wheat not much else, toast and some yeast. Just not much flavor.

T-Straw, wheat, yeast nothing else. No bitterness, no hops.

M-Light, not much carbonation and watery.

O-A bland boring, no reason to buy it beer. Maybe someone would like it in the summer but this beer is avoidable.

A - Clear, golden yellow, with a white head, very short, without much lacing.

S - Grains, spice. Pretty closed.

T - There is a hop element, bittering the sweeter grain line.

F - Brisk carbonation, easy drinkability.

O - Decent blonde, but I found it fairly standard. Nothing grabbed me.

Easily drinkable and great for any day, especially on a hot summer day. Craft Brew Heads may not be too interested in it but if you're wanting to take the leap from the main stream to a craft brew this is definitely one to try. Overall I like it but it wouldn't be my first choice in deciding on a beer to drink.

While not as flavorful as their Half Court IPA, Lost River Summer is a good beer. It is has a high drink-ability, but without the watery flavor and blandness of other highly drinkable beers (ie: standard American Lagers). The taste, though not as rich as Half-Court, is still quite round and three-dimensional.
