Summer Ale, a Wheat Ale brewed by Shovel Town Brewery

Amazed that they even give it an IBU rating, as there is zero bitterness. Shovel Town's description is accurate twice over. First, we appreciate the can artwork as it certainly looks like a family wishing they were at the beach, as opposed to the American TV-watching couch posture. So yes, Sunday Armchair Quarterbacks, enjoy this Shovel Town Summer Ale from the comfort of your couch.

Second, they use refreshing twice in their description. And, it works. This wheat beer truly was refreshing. Refreshing enough to be said twice.
