Tried this on tap at Burrito Loco a while back and completely forgot about it until I found my notes at home (200 miles away from the bar that I had it at...) while visiting my folks for Christmas.

Pours a hazy golden color. High carbonation and served with a half inch head that quickly shrank and didn't feel like leaving any lacing.

According to my notes, this smells like a weaker version of Shock Top.

Again, my notes mention Shock Top, light whiffs of wheat and spices. A whole lot of nothingness...even for an AB brew kind of disappointing.

Mouthfeel is crisp yet smoother than the normal Bud Light. Drinkability is nothing special.

Overall, not terrible. Honestly I'd probably choose this over Shock Top just because if I'm not going to enjoy a beer I might as well watch calories, right?

Serving type: on-tap

I remember when this beer came out on the market. It was a non filtered wheat beer bud Anheuser Busch. It was a light brown in color. Not a bad taste. It was something different than the every day bud light or Budweiser. It is a shame they do not brew this beer anymore. This beer was an easy drinking drak light beer. I also remember you had to roll the bottle because beer had stuff floating in the bottom. Overall I gave this beer a 3
