Much thanks to gottajiboo2 for hookin me up with this beer. It was worth the opportunity to try it. It is a no frills American Pale Wheat.

Appearance: It pours clear yellow with a fizzy quick fade head; no lace.

Smell: Some over ripe fruit a touch of stale wheat and barley a hint of yeast and muddled bitterness.

Taste: grain wheat and lemon grass. It has a bizarre set of citrus and yeast flavors that don't match with what I typically expect. It is not bad just quite different. The aftertaste doesn't sit right with me. It syrupy sweet and bitter too but not with flavorful hops. It seems a bit distracting.

Mouthfeel: Under carbonated for the style but it is slick and pleasantly dry.

Drinkability: By the time I got used to the uniqueness (distracting aftertaste) the beer was gone. It went quick. It is an easy drinker.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

This is a nice summer beer (pretty sure it is not year-round). Not too high on the ABV, low on the hops, light body. The lemon and orange citrus is not overt. Has a nice wheatyness. Overall an enjoyable ale. Would be an ideal hot summer afternoon quencher. Highly sessionable.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of wheat, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, and a hint of yeast. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and blend. The body strength is lacking.
