Pours a hazy golden lemon with a frothy ivory head that leaves spotty lacing as it dissipates.

Wheat, grain, orange, and lemon form the aroma. Fairly balanced.

Flavor is fairly malty throughout, finishing toasted lightly. Underlying lemon complements the soft wheat well. There's a touch of peppery spice and bitterness that surfaces late.

Body is moderate to a bit full, but is countered by carbonation on the high side.

Fairly nondescript, really. Almost seems to leave a watery impression. Surprised there's not more hop character.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: light gold color with mild lacing
Smell: pretty basic wheat ale; I'm also getting a lager scent similar to Bud or Yuengling
Taste: follows the nose; nothing special, but a nice little hoppy bite at the finish
Mouthfeel: smooth; easy to drink a few of these while golfing in the summer
Overall: decent brew, but I will only drink when nothing better is around
