look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale golden straw color with frothy white head that dissipates quickly leaving a fair amount of lacing. 22 oz bomber poured into pint glass.
S: Wheat, grain, citrus with a bit of skunkiness.
T: First flavors to hit the palate are citrus and wheat. Lemon zest is present. Pretty watery though.
M: Light bodied and fairly thin. Moderately carbonated.
O: Somewhat disappointing in that it is rather thin and lacks any oomph. I will definitely try out some of Jailhouse's brews as they are just 40 minutes up the road from me.

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

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours and looks like a low carbonated pilsner.

Aroma: wheat with a hint of citrus.

Flavor: wheat, light hops, touch of citrus. Very good bitte/sweet balance.

Feel: light body with adequate carbonation.

O: a very nice and refreshing American style pale wheat than leans towards the light side. Enjoyed this more than expected.

12 ounce bottle poured into a wheat beer glass

M - decently carbonated, no aftertaste

O - just another wheat beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

This pours a cloudy golden body with a foamy ultra white, like marshmallow white head that starts out at 2 fingers.

The nose is yeasty with faint banana, pizza dough, sugar, and lemon honey notes.

The flavor is sweet, and grainy and wholesome like breakfast cereal covered in white sugar.

The mouthfeel is extremely smooth with little carbonation.

Overall, this is a perfect example of an American Wheat Ale. I've been drinking Jailhouse brews for a couple years now and for some reason never tried the Slammer Wheat; what a mistake.

Poured this out of a fresh growler. Not a ton of carbonation or head to this one.. Crystal golden color looks nice though I prefer my wheat beers to be hazy... Has a lot more flavor then most american wheat beers but that isn't saying much. Slightly sweet some very light hops, very clean light light banana. Very easy to drink could put this back on a hot summer day no problem. Better then most of the style just not my fav style.
