I drank this next beer while sitting in the Ajax Tavern at the world famous Little Nell Hotel in Aspen, Colorado.  Although the Little Nell didn't blow me away, the bar was cool and the beer was refreshingly cold on a hot summer day:

Beer: Somersault American Blonde Ale

Brewery: New Belgium Brewing

ABV: 5.20%

Color: Deep orange, with a slight white head. Plenty of carbonation noticeable.

Smell:  Faint. Maybe citrus.

Taste: Fresh, citrusy taste. Lemon first, followed by a surprising ginger spiciness.

Overall: A very good summer-y beer B+
