A: light amber color; cloudy, thin head that dissipates quickly
S: sweet, white-bread smell
T: flavorful, but not intense; I detect hints of tea, lemon; it is light, a good summer beer; sweet, not bitter
M: pleasant feel on the tongue, despite the lack of head
D: very easy to turn to get another
Recommended for a hot summer day where you don't want to compromise the breadth of flavor.

Beer pours a cloudy and hazy darker yellow. Some chunks of yeast can be seen suspended in the beer despite a careful pour. Head settles out to a thin collar.
Smells of wheat, citrus and a general yeastiness. Nothing sticks out too much.
The flavor begins with an initial smooth wheat flavor. No real fruitiness. Finishes with a fairly assertive hop bitterness. Bitterness is well short of a pale ale, but stronger than most American wheat beers.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side do medium bodied. Medium level of carbonation.
Straightforward American wheat ale with an enjoyable hop presence that leaves the yeasty wheat flavor intact. A good summer brew, but climbs up a bit in abv compared to many others in the same style. Not out of place though.
