A lite, crisp beer with a slight burp at the end.

Taste rating in words: A dirt bike ride on a spring day, cool air in your face, sun and fun.

Can't give this one anything better than a 3. It's light and refreshing which fits the basic definition of a summer ale but it doesn't prove much in flavor or smell. It's an easy drinker and would go well at a BBQ but it's definitely not memorable.

12 oz bottle, tulip, “BB SEP 2018” on the bottle. Come on, just print a bottled on date!

Straw develops into gold and a pure white head forms and dissipates to a ring. It is very clear.

Fruity, grassy, and light, just like most summer ales for the undiscerning. A little grain, a little green grape.

Same story, but less sweetness. There’s a light apple caramel.

The body is light, but mineral and dry.

This is a pleasant light brew, but emphasis on the light.
