BALTIMORE, MD --- Heavy Seas Beer is pleased to announce the "re-commissioning" of its summer limited release, Smooth Sail. This summer ale will be available in cans and on draft starting in late March - early April in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.

"We've created a refreshing American wheat ale, brewed with lemon and orange peel," says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. "Smooth Sail finishes with a subtle citrus kick at a quaffable 4.5% ABV."

"Because it's available in cans, it's the perfect beer for sailing, trips to the park, hiking, or just sitting on the beach with your friends," says Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. "It is the perfect beer for folks with an active outdoor lifestyle during the summer months."

Smooth Sail is a beer that was in development for quite some time. With more than 20% malted wheat, it has an airy mouthfeel and a frothy head. "We've employed a neutral strain of 'wheat' yeast to produce a clean tasting beer that is delicate on the palate," says Leonard. "American hops are introduced late in the boil to impart a crisp flavor dimension. Finally, dried orange and lemon peel went into our hopback to provide a fruity, citrus aroma - without adding sweetness."

The product specs are:

Style: American Wheat Ale with Citrus

ABV: 4.5%

IBUs: 18

Malts: 2-Row, Wheat Malt, Carapils

Hops: Warrior, Hallertau, Cascade

Additons: Lemon & Orange peel----

"For anyone who is looking for a good summer drinker, this beer is the one," says Sisson. "Climb Aboard!"
