Poured to a nice, medium to full head, white, with good retention and lacing. Appearance was a clear with a golden color. Aroma had notes of fruit, banana, grass and bread. Nice and mild taste with notes of yeast, grain and bread with some slight fruit notes. Nice medium to creamy mouth feel with a crisp and dry aftertaste.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium golden amber with a fine, two-finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of light bicuit malt, wheat, faint citrus. Flavor of sweet biscuit malt, faint citrus, wheat and bittering hops, finishes with light wheat and dry biscuit malt. Light bodied with good carbonation. A kind of odd beer, seems to lean closer to a light lager or steam beer in character, but has light wheat ale characteristic in the finish. A nice drinking light beer, but not what I would gravitate towards if looking for a wheat ale. Like most Anchor products, well made and pleasant, but rather mild.

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

A- Clear and golden with ample carbonation. A small one finger white head develops but recedes quickly. A light halo remains and lightly laces the glass.

S- Sweet malts, apple. pear. A hop bitterness way, way behind.

T- The apple and pear sweetness comes right at you immediately and with authority. An earthy malt flavor as well.

M- The mouthfeel is a little gritty. A medium bodied brewski with a good carbonation feel. Dry and drinkable.

O- This is a very drinkable wheat ale with a great feel. Powerful sweet fruit flavors. Although a little too sweet for me. Good for a summer picnic at the beech.
