Pours a clear copper body with a head that fizzes and fizzles like soda water, without leaving a collar or a trace of lacing. Aromas are faint bud not bad. I mainly get a lightly toasted graininess with maybe a hint of caramel sweetness and a bit of plantain peel. Taste tends toward the sweeter end of the spectrum from start to finish, with toasty malts blending with sugariness on the front and mid-palates before a minerality emerges on the back to make the finish more crisp and memorable. Medium-light body is appropriate for how little flavor it carries, and overall it's an okay beer but seems boring when compared to some of the more established competitors in its style.

Served in a Becker pint.

Body is a copper - amber hue. Clear and slightly carb'd. The off-white, ahem, crown builds to two-finger's. Lace curtains left as the billowy stuff droops.

Wheaty bouquet, some mashed apple, pear, general light sweetness mainly.

The flavors are very close to the nose. The sweeter wheat malt base is the most forward. A little hoppy earthiness in the finish. Muddled flavors of apple and wheat beyond that.

Feel is actually decent. It drinks smooth, light bubble tingling noted. More light than medium body thanks to this.

Color me surprised! This stuff is drinkable. And it even has moments of being enjoyable! Give it a go if you are curious or need that tick fix.
