Sampling right now on 6/26/14. (yeah, I know this is the 3rd one this evening but oh well. Sometimes go several days without doing a review or there ya go!) :) Bottle chilled own to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a pretty golden honey in color with about a half-finger of a white head. Some spotty lacing is seen that sticks to the glass. The aroma is of wheat with a touch of honey. The taste is even more flavorful with more of a honey taste. Crisp and smooth actually with a slight tangy finish. No bitter aftertaste. This is a good brew.

Appearance - straw yellow, translucent

Smell - light wheat, minerals

Taste - minerals, metallic, light corn

Mouthfeel - light and watery, very crisp

Overall - not bad, like a macro, good lawn mower beer. This is my first in a sampler platter, hope it gets better :)
