4.3/5  rDev +44.3%

A - great clean golden yellow color. weak head. high amount of carbonation

S - light wheat smell, with a small side fruit note.

T - crisp, clean, wheat flavor, with a bit of a kick.

M - light body, very clean and refreshing

D - pretty good drinkability, a slight lack of flavor and kick for me.

The others who were drinking this with me were amazed, and praised the beer all night long.

Reviewed from Notes...

Appearance-Light yellow body w/ lots of carbonation. Almost no head and very minimal lacing.

Smell-Really nothing. some wheat and grass

Taste-Very light. Wheat and lemon, light hop finish. Easy to drink.

Mouthfeel-Light bodied with a pretty high carbonation level, a little bit too much.

Overall-Just another Pale, simple beer. Nice for a summer day, but will never blow you away.

(from notes circa 9/12)

Look- Clear straw with a nice depth of color. Served without head, a few streams of bubbles.

Smell- Almost nothing, faint fresh white bread.

Taste- I really thought this was a lager, no description of the beer was given. Vaguely rice-like, clean, bready with an almost nutty finish. Slight mineral/basil aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Light-medium body , light carbonation. Crisp. Finishes smoother, dry.

Overall- Drinks, smells, tastes, and feels like a high-end pale adjunct lager. If I hadn't looked it up that's precisely what I would have thought it was. It seems like they were going for something crisp and clean, so they succeeded with that. Not something I'd get again.
