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.

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.

One of the initial year-round offerings from Jailhouse. This one was purchased several months ago at Green's on Ponce and has been chilling in a refrigerator ever since, waiting for this review. The Slammer Wheat is brewed in the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. According to the label, it is "An American wheat beer perfect for the 'General Population,' Slammer Wheat is characterized by inviting citrus aromas and delicate malt flavors that finish clean and crisp."

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber to 2 12 oz. snifters. Served at 45º Fahrenheit. Shared with my Girlfriend.

(Appearance) Pours a thick frothy white head over a hazy pale amber body. Abundant small carbonation. Not bad. 3.5

(Smell) Wheat malt with a mild, yet pleasant sweetness, lemon, honey, and pears all plausible additives. Simple aroma, it's mild but enjoyable. 3.5

(Taste) Up front it's a dessert sweet wheat malt with a touch of honey for boosted sweetness. Very low bitterness despite a mild interesting tart lemony sourness on the finish that rounds it out somewhat. A bit too sweet to be ideally balanced but the flavors are well preserved, the subtleties are complimentary and the off-flavors are mild enough to not interfere with the medium bodied wheat flavors. More pleasing than not, it's one of Georgia's better wheat offerings. 4

(Mouthfeel) Slick but chewy and thick with a lesser carbonation crispness than desirable. A subtle froth on the tongue keeps this feeling like a heavier wheat beer than the average brew. Body is medium, heavy for a wheat. Alcohol presence is low. Not a bad pair, just a bit too shy on carbonation. 3

(Overall) A fuller-bodied wheat beer with some enjoyable flavors and a nice mild citrusy tone. A bit sweet for the general beer drinker's population but more enjoyable than not. 3.5
