Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

Poured a cloudy medium yellow with small yeast particles hovering throughout. The head was white, frothy and average in size with some really nice lacing and great retention. The aroma was strong with the scent of wheat, a mild grain malt and a flowery hop. It also had notes of orange, honey and a hint of spices. It tasted mildly sweet and a tad acidic with notes of orange and wheat in the beginning then matured to be a bit more on the spicy side with a nice hoppy finish and left the flavor sticking around for a short while. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a unique tasting brew with all the flavors of summer.

    BrewGuy44 Not as good as it use to be, seems a little watered down. I been drinking this for over 10 years,but not so much now. Bells Lager of the Lakes is my summer beer now.
