I grew up in Maine so I’m always excited to try new craft beers from Vacationland. With the temps on the rise I decided to pick up Baxter Brewing Company’s new offering-Summer Swelter.

Lemon smells burst out of the can and when poured into a glass (I usually drink it from the can) a frothy white head appears. This is Baxter’s first unfiltered beer so it’s hazy with an almost burnt orange color.

More lemon with some lime in the taste. It’s a little malty which balances the zesty taste. Quite refreshing and drinkable. Enough flavor to satisfy craft beer fans while also being a good introduction for friends who prefer other beers. At 4.7% ABV this is a fantastic beer for a backyard whiffle ball tourney, beach day, or day hike.
