This beer pours a very light gold color with a standing white head. The aroma is grainy with a light hoppiness. The beer tastes lager like with some lemon zest, but not that much. It's a clean beer that refreshes, but lacks any real wheat characteristics. I don't taste much wheat here at all. I'm really growing quite tired of so called "wheat ales" that have none of the qualities associated. It's like just adding a little wheat malt gives you the right to call an otherwise pilsener beer a wheat ale. This one is low bodied like much of the rest and is also very drinkable. Otter Creek does not impress me at all. Their beers are average at best.

Serving type: on-tap
