Serving was a traditional shaker pint glass 335ml
ABV...5%
APPERANCE- Average color for a wheat ale. Faintly clouded golden straw in color I would say a 6 srm which is kind of a darker tint than normal. Head retention was low with a lace of lacing on the sides of my glass. Next time I serve this ale I will put my mug in the freezer for a little while then serve this beer into it to maybe spark up the carbonation, I say this because the foam vanishes almost too fast leaving you with no pillow of foam to look at when drinking this ale.

AROMA- Aromas of wheat bread, water crackers(dull cracker) with a hint of sour dough and unmalted grain. Yeasty and Grainy aromas may sometimes be bad in beers but for this ale I like its subtle notes of yeast and grain.
TASTE- On the front, a slight touch of diacetyl(buttery popcorn). In the middle, Faintly tart hitting those tastebuds on the sides of your pallet, grainy and notes of biscuit malt. On the finish or back, is a low perceived bitterness with a crisp, dry and truly refreshing finish.

MOUTHFEEL- Low carbonation, low notes of diacetyl, a sharp grain and crisp mouth feel. A touch of bitternessis complemented by the wheat taste and carbonation that eventhough its not all there, its still enough to cut through the taste of a greasy meal.
OVERALL- Good beer for the end of the spring season and the hot summer days. You can definitely forgive yourself for drinking a mug of this after a long 5k run lol. Good flavor, good appearance and a crisp, dry and refreshing ale

FOOD VS BEER- With any wheat ale I would recommend go light on the dish like a chicken salad with a balsamic vinaigrette and some cranberries and carrots. Also if you tailgating i would recommend making a bratwurst and use sauerkraut as a topping.

Thanks guys don't forget to keep drinking and taking notes goodluck to all taking the cicerone exam i will be taking it this year!

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binbny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz. long necked brown bottle with no freshness date, and yes, the Jarrett Payton the beer is named after is the son of "sweetness" - Walter Payton.

The beer poured a slightly hazed light gold color and the initial head is enormous, so be careful with the pour. Half the glass was filled with white bubbly foam that sort of looked like dish soap. The head dissapates quickly and lacing is minimal.

Citrusy and yeasty smell with a touch of wheat.

Mild wheat flavor with a hefty dose of lemony citrus along with a slight yeast twang. Hop bitterness is low. Thought it might be sweet being named after the son of "sweetness", but it's not. Clean, dry finish.

Light bodied with slightly higher than average carbonation.

It's OK, but nothing memorable or exciting.
