American Pale Wheat Ale |  5.60% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn’t suck.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Golden color with bright white moderate head. Short retention.

Citrus, green apple, lemon marmalade, cracker.

Citrus, robust hops, wheat bread, resin.

Medium-full bodied, snappy hops, bitter clean finish with some alcohol heat.

Seems to rely heavily on hops to carry the beer. Found it to be fairly one-dimensional.

Serving type: bottle
