Freshness date stamped on bottle neck... Thanks Boulder Beer! Poured into a pint glass.

Pours lemon-peel yellow with a billowy white snowy three fingers of head. For an APWA, the head lasts like a champ. This is a very light colored beer, and appears like it is going to showcase some nice crackery wheat-malt flavor.

Smells as expected, very light yeasty notes (without bite) and some pale grains. Good so far.

There is more yeast flavor than expected from the nose or from the style guidelines, but this isn't a bad thing. As I hoped there is some wheat flavor and it displays a bit of cracker. The yeast is nearly like a mild European style wheat ale, and it blurs the line between this style and that. Well done.

The mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. The body seems to come as much from the carbonation as from the ingredients.

Conclusion: Fine work by Boulder Beer. This is a very light beer and I think it would work amazingly on cask in the summer, or out of a growler at least (less carbonation). For some reason I always had the impression that this wasn't a worthwhile beer, and I am happy to be corrected. Boulder Beer sticks mostly to mainstream styles, but they do them well.
