Bottle picked up recently in Columbus, OH
The beer pours a hazy looking golden amber with a fluffy white head that laces. The nose is citrusy, wheaty, with a hint of lemongrass. The taste is similar to that of Captain Lawrence's Sun Block with hints of citrusy hops upfront followed by a lingering wheaty bitterness. It's well carbonated, light-bodied, with a touch of cardboardy wheat, some lingering citrusy hops, a semi-dry finish, and a hint of yeast fruit. This is definitely a good beer, but I'm not sure why it's listed as being retired.

Notes from last weekend; my third from Elevator.
This is the first I've had that didn't look good. It's not bad, but the hazy medium-yellow brew's head doesn't rise particularly high or last particularly long, but fades to a foam somewhat quickly and leaves just enough spotty lacing to make for an average look.
A little grainy with some lemon and an off sort of cereal note; it's almost like toasted oat, only obviously no oat but that note of it found in some boxes of cereal.
Grainy in the flavor as well, the bright, tangy and lightly sour lemon note does some good to a beer that otherwise threatens to slide into the blandness typical of the style. Fortunately, it stops short, but it's no Gumballhead.
It's light, yes, but crisp and refreshing at the same time and the carbonation is consistent. There's enough smoothness to keep it rolling on the tongue and keep from being boring.

Second beer from Elevator!
This pours out a slightly hazy yellow with orange hues and a little bit of white head.
The aroma is full of malt and wheat, but not really any hops.
Taste is very similar; the malt is upfront and then slight hints of hops, followed by wheat and earthy notes.
Very refreshing, but nothing spectacular. It's a solid beer, but I probably wouldn't buy this again.

12 ounce bottle, picked up as a single at the Kroger in Pickerington. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge frothy white head. I had to let the head settle a bit before pouring the rest of the beer into the glass. The head stayed around a while, and there's a lot of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (grapefruit, lemon peel), wheat, and some cloves. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but I think the wheat flavor is strongest, then the citrusy hops, and then a bit of clove. Mouthfeel/body is light, with a high level of carbonation. I think it would be better if the carbonation was lowered some. I still think it's a pretty decent brew, I'll likely buy this again in the future.
