This was the other beer I got to try while I was at the Argus brewery...most of the things I had to say about the California Steam re: uncharacteristic sweetness compared to the average Wheat Ale also apply here.

a - Darker straw coloration to the beer, very light foam on top.

s - Light and sweeter hop aromatics...somewhat citrusy? Very bright nose to it.

t - I'm not the biggest fan of ales because usually they have too much hops, but I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of this beer. It has a ligher pilsner taste for a Wheat Ale and that is because of the choice of malts. All in all, regarding taste, I enjoyed the fact that it was able to split the difference between the taste of a serious ale and a more subdued session beer.

m - Nice clean mouthfeel. No gummy feeling as you might get with a higher hopped beer.

o - I really like the light, crisp tones that come across from the ale in this beer. The pilsner malts round the taste out to something very smooth and very refreshing. This is definitely a beer to drink during the summer months.

Clear hay with a little bronze color. Some sediment rests on teh bottom of my glass. Pretty good bubbling. Looks poretty good for a filtered wheat ale.

Sweet, light fruitiness mixed with light toasted wheat and barley cereal grins. Smells like a flavorful session ale.

Taste is malt forward and some light fruity, yeasty flavors. Great carbonation making for tastey sessionable flavors and palate. I like this beer. Would buy it again.

Appearance: Basically looks like a pale version of Blue Moon. Pale orange with no foam or lacing.

Smell: Very musky malt. Maybe this bottle sat around for a while?

Taste/Mouthfeel: Mostly coriander. Not a whole lot of citrus as expected, but the coriander is refreshing. Creamy initially, but flat in the finish.

Overall Drinkability: An ok beer. Not as good as Pegasus or McCaffrey's.

Got this one free so I can't really complain. Bottle dated 2013, hmm.
Don't look a gift horse and all that I guess.

Pours into a can pint with an explosive level of foam, hazy orange body with champagne streams of carbonation. A ton of lacing due to the overcarbonation and supercharged head.

Aroma is yeasty, some sweet apple juice and dried pineapple esters.
Taste is pretty tart, it has a clean lacto pucker, though I highly doubt it's intentional. A bit of dusty wheat and apple in the middle, and a bone dry aftertaste. Light and crisp. Yes the beer is infected, but it's honestly not that bad. Frankly the bland label description is worse.
