Caslte Danger Summer Crush Review

Name: Castle Danger Summer Crush
Style: Blonde Ale
ABV: 4.7%

Well, with the exception of a few more weeks, summer is pretty much here. So naturally there are some summer beers that just need to be tried out. With that said, Castle Danger just released a new beer called Summer Crush, a beer that has been described as an Un-Shandy because of the lemon zest that you find in Shandies is from using Sorachi Ace hops as opposed to lemonade.

Appearnace - Hazy dark yellow with mild carbonation. The head isn't thick but there's tons of lacing.

Aroma - Lemongrass and pale malts with some light hops and mild spices.

Taste - Pretty similar to the nose. You've got some lemongrass and pale malts upfront with some very mild hoppiness and yeasts towards the back end of the palate. The aftertaste is also quite dry save for some barely noticeable yeasts.

Summer Crush is not a beer looking to change the world, but it doesn't necessarily need to be. What we have here is a nice and sessionable summer beer that is perfect for warmer weather. If you see this, I would certainly recommend checking this out since it's another solid lineup in Castle Danger's lineup.

Castle Danger Summer Crush - 8/10
