On-tap at Emma's Bar in River Falls, WI. Kind of on the dark side for a pale wheat ale, the head doesn't get too big and dies pretty quickly. Fairly clean in the nose. Not a huge wheat character, but has a decent malt profile. Hops are not huge. Taste is ok, fairly clean. Not that sharp though. Mouthfeel is fine but not exceptional. Doesn't really compare to the classic champions of this style...Gumballhead comes to mind in this price range, although that's going to be a lot harder to find than Oberon in most regions.
Serving type: on-tap

$ 3.50/16 oz draft at Unos’ at Birch Run
Aroma of malt
Head chopped by bartender – what remains is small (1.5 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing OK – small rings with small bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor begins bitter followed by a short generic citrus burst; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends quickly, no aftertaste.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation
This is classified as a pale wheat ale on BA. What I had was unlike any wheat beer I’ve ever had. I last had it in 2006 and I guess I’ll wait another eight years before I try it again.
