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.

12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 3/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of light lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of light lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish. Incredibly clean on lager flavors with zero estery yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a damn nice kellerbier style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
