On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a pale straw color, cloudy with a slight white head and excellent lacing. Smells very grainy and somewhat dusty. Light, but with a dose of citrus and some bitterness from hops. The taste is similar, with a bit more of a bite on the back end from the hops. My problem with very low alcohol beers like this is the incomplete fermentation leaving all that dusty grain flavor. Not as bad here as some, but still... Light and crisp overall with a soft finish. pleasant enough, but somewhat insubstantial.

Draft pint at Northdown, quick review from notes.
This is the 2nd time i've had this, it's been awhile so I tried it again.

Color is a saturated yellow orange, somewhat hazy, trails of carbonation visible, compact but dense head of white foam. Lasting retention, concentric rings of lace form on the opposite side of the glass.

Aroma is herbal, hoppy but seemingly a little aged. Dried citrus peel, light yeast as it warms.

Firmly bitter, light bodied though it feels more substantial than a lager. Well hopped, dry and grassy herbals, finishes clean. Some light traces of wheat dance around also. Overall it would make an ok session beer, seems less fresh than the first time on tap a year or two ago.

Only 2.4 percent abv. wish it was higher and expensive. I payed 3 dollars for one bottle.

Super pale yellow pour.way too much head but a pure bridal white.

Very strong of wheat and a little hoppy spice on the nose. I'd call it nutmeg.

The taste is an over whelming sweet that has a powerful bitter to back it up. My mouth goes numb from flavor over load. The wheat malt is clean crisp and sweet. I want too drink this in the sun!

The mouth feel is slick and light. Hop resins make this beer palatable, but out is so light and drinkable.

Huge fucking white head on this one. Hazy light yellow body. The head retention is so strong it lasted beyond the last sip.

Wheat and light fruity esters in the aroma. Lemon accented hopping.

Taste was like drinking hoppy seltzer. Low to medium bitterness. Some of that grainy wheat flavor I'd expect. Just not a lot going on but it would be a great beer to drink on a day that's hot as shit out and you are sweating like a herd of fat trekkies in line for William Shatner's autograph.

As a lawnmower beer, this was decent.
