    My favorite so far is Belhaven Scottish Ale. Deep, rich and smooth taste. Perfect for unwinding after a long day at work. I'd drink it during the spring or summer.

    I ordered a Boulevard Wheat tonight at Buffalo Wild Wings (apparently it is in fact available in Illinois now), but they gave me something else instead. I'm pretty sure it was a Widmer, and I just didn't like it. Too hoppy. I'm just not a fan of hops.

    I find it too heavy for summer in the West Coast area. Leinies are available here, though, and they are good-if a little potent.

    I think a summer brew should lack fruit(usually) until I decide it needs a piece on top, like a slice of orange floating on a solid wheat.

    Dos Equis is OK, but too heavy to BBQ to. I like something lighter. Pacifico is my beer of choice in July.

    Upper Canada is a good brewer, I like their stuff. My favourite right now, though, has to be Sam Adams Boston Lager. It's got a very rich flavour, malty and with hints of wood and smoke. Very tasty and very drinkable at the same time.

    As for good summer beers, I enjoy both Ste-Ambroise Pale Ale and Creemore Springs Lager. Both are nice light, crisp beers, perfect for a BBQ. I also enjoy Rickard's White, which is pretty good for a macrobrew (and widely available on patios ;)).
