Brewers Description of this hoppy spiced beer:

“Our first unfiltered offering, Summer Swelter Ale is the perfect warm weather beer! Summer Swelter Ale is light and refreshing while still keeping your taste buds interested. The malt base features a hefty dose of wheat for a big, fluffy head and a soft, round body, yet keeps the beer drinkable even during the dog days. The light malt character is more than balanced by a blend of citrusy American hops, giving Swelter a crisp bitterness without being overpowering. The hoppy citrus aroma complements the ingredients that make this beer so unique: lemon and lime peel, Kaffir lime leaves, and lemongrass provide an subtle yet unmistakeable floral nose and just a touch of bracing tartness, taking the refreshment of Swelter to the next level.”

Our Review:

Summer Swelter summer beer displays an attractive hazy pale orange color with a nice steady head. The aroma is pure hops with a hint of lemon. The flavor is much of the same. The draw is semi-sweet and moderately tart. The body is light with a medium carbonation. The hops really overshadow the subtitle lemon and spices, especially with a strong punch at the finish.

Fans of hoppy beers should find a few cans of Summer Swelter for a great crisp summer refresher.
