2.58/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Clear, coppery color,slim, soon-gone head.

Aroma is sweet, caramel-y...but a bit too much so. Little hops here. Almost sickly, sorry to say.

Flat, Thin and watery, dull as dishwater. Some malty/ caramel-y ESB-ish attributes stand in for flavor, but very weakly.

Drinks dreamily, if you don't miss substance.

Makes me wonder if they had crappies in the tanks, prior to filtraton. Almost tastes like it...no, no, ...that's mean to the fish, I take it back. (468 characters)

On-tap at Gitchee Gumee Brewfest - Listed as an Amber Honey Ale? Which the color seems to be, a light golden amber center with honey yellow soft edges. Thinner off-white head stayed present for a good while. Not much in the lacing dept. though. Very minimal.

Aroma is lightly toasted, kinda rice crisped cereal-like with a light leafy hop backing.

Short and brief taste of crisp and toasted malt, lightly breaded, cereal feathered with caramel and honey and a delicate leafy hop finish.

Lighter medium body, super quick and easy, not quite watery, thin overall but has a nice crispness to it; but lacks. An OK drinker to. A bit boring. (645 characters)

A run of the mill basic American Wheat with little to no flavor, aroma, or character...

A little darker in color than I expected, and there was a very light maltiness to it but overall it was devoid of taste and aroma...a beer for the bud light drinkers apparently....actually most of their 10-beer menu seemed to be dumbed down for cross-over drinkers.... (359 characters)

Served on draft at Northwoods. Described by Northwoods as a wheat, looks more like a light amber. Malt shows a hint a caramel roast, and we start getting into more noticeable hops. A clean finish, more like a “red” ale. Not much in the way of wheat taste, but pretty nice. If you to try this beer, though, go to Northwoods and drink it there, don't take any bottles home, as they seem to be having trouble with their bottling. (428 characters)
