Easy Drinking, light and pleasant enough, just not a lot of flavor. I think I could pound these all night, no problem.

Had this beer for Sunday lunch. On tap bar Louis in Denver. I enjoyed it. Refreshing and easy drinking.

Picked up a six pack of this for a discounted $6.99. Poured into a 24 oz snifter.

A: Pours a hazy gold with light white head. About what you'd expect. Very good.

S: Lemongrass, hay, grains and malts. Not bad, but subdued.

T: Hints of lemon, wheat flavor up front and a malty backdrop. Okay, but there are much better examples of this in the region, like Upland and Bells.

M: Fuller than you'd expect - almost creamy. A little heavier than I'd like.

This is average in every sense of the word.

Appearance: Well, it looks something like a beer. The color of urine. Huge bubbles, chunky sediment. Just not that appetizing.
Smell: What smell? There's a slight breadiness that comes across.
Taste: Most wheat ales I've had are tasty. There's hops, there's fruit flavors, there's wheat and bread and maybe even clove. There's complexity. This beer has none of those qualities. It's bland, with only slight breadiness and no discernible fruit or floral qualities that I'd normally look for. A huge disappointment. Poor example of the style.
Feel: It's supposed to be creamy, but it comes off as only partially creamy. At least the bubbles feel nice, but I could get that from many other beers.
Overall: If I was blind-tasting this, I'd be able to guess it's an AB product. It's probably mind-blowing for people used to drinking Bud Light, but I'll be honest, I almost would rather drink a Bud Light because it's easier to swallow. I had to drain pour this, and I hate drain pouring beers.
