The brewmaster's goal: the perfect ale for summertime quaffing, nothing more. SummerBright is the result. The craftsman's touch combines white wheat, two row pale and munich malt with the pacific northwest's most intruiging hops to create a bright, clean ale ideal for picnicking, evenings on the screen porch and enjoying the whims of the summer breeze.

    A fuzzy golden colored beer with a moderate foamy te4xtured white head. Some hang time on the head. Settles into a thin ringlet. The profile, light is lemon peel, some grassiness and bready malt. Overall, not bad.

    Not a bad beer, but its a bit light in the aroma and flavor areas. There are hints of wheat, some fruit tones and a little spice from the hops. A non offensive, easy drinking summer brew.

    Nice looking pour...clear golden body, medium sized white head and supple lacing. Fruity aroma with some lemon zest. Light bodied, balanced, fruity. Flavor falls a bit short with some hollow emptiness followed by a decent citrus fruitiness. A touch watery and uneventful. Oberon's red headed stepbrother no doubt.

    poured a nice light hazy yellow, with a small quickly disappearing head. Aroma was very nice but light in this beer which was disappointing. I love wheat beers but found this one lacking. It was ok but nothing great, overall it was disappointing i expected more from this brewery.

    A very light color with a nice sized white head. Nice lacing around the glass. Smell of citrus/lemons and grassy wheat. Taste is mildly refreshing but not a whole lot going on. Not terrible but not great either.

    Pours a rather typical clear straw yellow with a thick but not persistent white head. Aroma is fairly strong, crisp and malty with a yeasty undertone. Flavor is about average, malty and slightly fruity but nothing special. Texture is smooth, a little tingly and a tiny bit on the watery side. Still, it was a nice bit of sunshine on a nasty rainy day.

    Poured a light golden color with a moderate head. The aroma was light wheat, malt and hops. The mouth feel was light--pleasingly good carbonation. A flavor of wheat beer, fine hops. A very good lawnmower brew.

    The aroma is fruity to some extent with maybe some bananas or apples coming through with some peculiar spice as well. The appearance is a very cloudy, medium-yellow with a nice and full head on top that diminishes to a light lacing that coats the glass nicely. The mouthfeel is light-bodied and very crisp with nice fruity complexity as well as nice balance with a very wet and refreshing palate. The flavor is typical of the style with hints of spice (coriander?) with an aftertaste that is refreshing and smooth as well as crisp with maybe some malty profiles with a finish that is smooth and rather thick for the style and would be nice to have on a hot day. Overall, not a bad brew at all and very drinkable.

    This wheat beer pours a slightly hazy golden color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is bready and slightly grassy. A light bodied wheat beer. The malts are wheaty and bready. The hops are slightly spicy and a touch floral. Mild flavor. Lively carbonation. Not a lot of flavor. It would be sort of passable as a session beer or a really hot day, which I am guessing is what it brewed for, but still its fairly low in flavor. It kind of has that club soda flavor, but it does finish well. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
