3.45/5 rDev +3.6%
Pours a golden cot with white head. Lacing rings the glass with each sip.
The nose is tight. Very faint wheat malt.
Starts with a whisper of wheat and malt with just the faintest hops to balance it out. This is american lager meats wheat beer.
Mouthfeel is appropriately medium. The finish is clean with a bit of grahm cracker flavor lingering
Overall, a good lawn mower beer here. Not sure it's categorically an American pale wheat but cream ale perhaps. This has mass appeal for casual beer drinkers, I'm sure and it sure quenched my thirst after a long day of work.

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into minimal lacing. The aroma has a faint tangy wheaty quality, but it is quite hard to detect. Thr taste is similar to the aroma. Mostly open space. The mouthfeel is thin with moderate carbonation, and a watery texture. Overall, this is a bad example of the wheat beer style, and a bland beer in general. I will not drink this again.

A- straight up golden american lager color. crystal clear. light active carbonation. 1 finger of white head that fades rather quickly.
S- light european pilsner. That same kind of stella skunk. Herbal, floral, really nice. Potent too. I could smell it as soon as I opened the bottle. The aroma filled the room.
T- Mildly hoppy, in a floral way. The yeast comes through at the end. Great flavor profile for quaffing.
M- it's pretty soft. absolutely dry. the carbonation dances but doesn't sting the tongue. Very easy going.
O- Session anyone? This is a full flavored, easy drinking pale wheat that invites you in for more and more. I'd buy a 12 pack anytime. As far as the style goes, it's a version. It's filtered, it's hoppy, it's medium bodied, so not quite what I was expecting, but nevertheless, awesome beer.

Appearance: Ever so slightly hazy pale yellow with some visible effervescence slowly ascending towards a thin off-white head.
Aroma: Sweet wheat and an odd, but not entirely unpleasant, smell I can't quite place.
Taste: Crisp and pleasant flavor with definite notes of the wheat. A little sweet overall with a slight grassy hop profile. A meager 12 IBUs so barely any bitterness. The odd smell comes through in the aftertaste (corn startch?) and like in the aroma it is not really a bad thing, just different. Pretty robust for 4.2% ABV. Very nice balance.
Mouthfeel: Between thin and medium in body which is pretty thick for what I was expecting but a good thing. I gave it a very aggressive pour to calm down some of the carbonation and it resulted in a very smooth drinking experience and high drinkability.
Final Thoughts: A decent low alcohol offering from a local brewery. Would work well as in introductory craft beer. Would I drink it again? Probably not, but it would be good on a hot summer day.
