look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This is a pretty decent beer. Like a macro lager with personality. It looks like Budweiser or whatever (maybe a little "healthier" looking: i.e. it has some color), but the head sticks around. Smells sweet and of grain. The taste matches the smell. Refreshing malt sweetness without overdoing it. The mouthfeel is even and smooth and leaves your mouth feeling clean. This is a good "anytime" beer and definitely beats Shiner's Hefeweizen. Second only to their dunkelweizen.

3.49/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a decent sized white head that quickly recedes. Aromas of bready pilsner with hints of sugary and fruity sweetness and a very faint floral hop scent. The flavor is mildly sweet with a honey sugary fruitiness that mixes fairly well with the doughy bready malts. Crisp spicy hop bitterness and a touch of carbonic bite balance this fairly well. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. Nice summer brew.
