12 oz can, dated 4.4.14 and marked as 33rd annual, poured into a pint glass.
The beer pours a cloudy, hazy golden color, hues of straw and lemon that has some sediment resting at the base of the glass after it's been fully poured. A soft, fizzy, white head appears with moderate retention and little lace left behind. The aroma is of soft pale grain, light crusty wheat, honey sweetness and gentle hops, lightly fruity but predominantly earthy. The flavors mirror well, lots of sweet and soft pale grain, light wheat breadiness with gentle hop bitterness and some mild fruitiness and grassy flavors. The body is okay, assertive crispness, light soapiness, coats the mouth decently well and finishes lightly dry.
Verdict: A decent pale wheat ale from Cigar City. Not the most interesting or exciting take on the style, but it's fairly refreshing and on a warm summer afternoon, it was a nice choice.

A- hazy light golden brew with a rocky off white head. Head retention is poor, and the lacing is decent.
S- citrus! Grapefruit, clementine, lemon. There is some grain in there as well.
T- light wheat and malt with an astringent grapefruit finish. Not too much going on.
M- it's light with lively and prickly carbonation, which it should be.
O- it's a pale wheat ale, plain and simple.
