Had this in a glass at the Columbus Clippers game. A nice and refreshing beer for summer and easy to drink. Had a lemony taste with floral aroma. Really enjoyed this and would have it again.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, this beer pours a slightly cloudy/hazy light to medium golden color with lots of streams of little bubbles fairly rapidly rising to the beer's surface. Has a white head that's about an inch thick when first poured what settles eventually to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass with bits of small cluster swirls of foam in the beer's surface and a bit of lacing too. Aromas of wheat and somewhat bready malts mild hops and not really much else. The taste is pretty much the same, with some wheat and bready malts with mild sweetness. Slight earthy, floral hop bitterness to round this out. Has a mainly crisp, yet smooth and fairly frothy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

Tradiional optics, perhaps could have used more head / carbonation. Classic German aromas, crisp malt, lemongrass, rye spice, dry grain. Clean, simple and precise profile...great german yeast flavor, spelt grain, cracker, etc. nice floral hop addition. Body is a tad heavy & oily, but nonetheless great american adaptation of the style.

I tried the Summer Teeth at the Clippers Huntington Park. It poured a hazy yellow with thin white head left some lace. The scent had hints of citrus. The taste was evenly balanced between bread like malt and lemon. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer and worth a try.

Columbus has a solid product here, and something a little unique and worth a try.

It opens pretty yellow and slightly cloudy. The foam is continuous.. There is a nice yeasty hoppy aroma that is not too overbearing but still present.

The taste is far superior to macro brewed lagers. It has just a hint of yeastiness and a nice malty and hoppy balance. It leaves a nice beer aftertaste.

This is what you want to show your uninitiated lager drinkers to get them being more discriminating. Great stuff.

I'm generally not a huge fan of lagers, but this was a nice crisp refreshing beer. Super refreshing and easy drinking. Goes down great on a hot day. And at the low abv, you can have a few.

Very cloudy, unfiltered golden yellow.

Decent amount of citrus on the nose in the form of lemon. Also yeast and salty crackers.

Drinks about right in line with the smell. Slightly tart with some club cracker like malts and a slight bit of floral/grassy hops and peppery bite.

Very crisp. Maybe a little too shandy like. Would love the malts to shine some more, but seems to be pretty true to style. Easy drinking and flavorful.
