While waiting on a take-out order at Punch Pizza in Minneapolis, I noticed their "half-beer-while-you-wait" sign. Decided that was a good chance to try this local beer. Tasted 21 November 2012, reviewed from notes.
Pours very pale yellow, totally clear. About 1 finger of white head. Nice lacing, good color, and a thick stream of bubbles rising up. Solid.
Smell is super faint and kind of grainy. About what I was expecting. A little bit of crisp hops, but that's pretty faint. Mostly it's grainy light malts.
Taste is similar, but strangely airy. Thin flavor. Like drinking light beer - an odd thing to get from a craft beer. Sometimes it tastes grainy, sometimes it tastes like nothing at all.
Very very light bodied. Pretty well carbonated, starts out prickly. Rather quick finish. Crisp and clean, but for a light refreshing beer I'd like it to be more crisp.
Kind of a dull beer, but not so bad. Airy, almost like I'm not drinking beer, except for the carbonation and the light malty flavor. I can see what they were aiming for, but it's not something I'm really excited about - an ale that tastes like a light lager. Now I know what it tastes like, and I won't feel compelled to drink it again.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Made a great foamy head that stuck around for a good long while. White bubbles. A little haze. Bright gold with a little copper.
S: Wheat. Sweetness of grain and honey. A little alcohol. Good but nothing exciting.
T: Again some sweetness. Starts off sweet and finishes long and sweet too. Has biscuit and grain cracker taste throughout. Slight crisp carbonation taste is nice but doesn't overcome the sweetness altogether.
M: Sweet, crisp, sweet and slight creaminess on the finish. This beer takes you through a wide array of textures. Very well balanced and smooth.
O: Good, but nothing amazing. Well executed, but necessarily novel. Probably a good football watching beer, but not much else.
