On the side of the bottle "American Clear Wheat beer brewed with 50% malted wheat beer, resulting in a creamy, mild, delicately flavored beer."
Clear wheat beer that has been filtered, I will call it a Kristalweizen.
A clear orange colored beer without much head formation.
Smell is light and fruity. A little bit of caramel candy scent and a larger orange aroma. Lastly a bit of toasted bread and a trace of vanilla.
Starts out malty with a good toasted grain flavor. Big grain flavor and more sweetness than you would expect. Not a lot of complexity here, just lots of toasted grain flavor. Hops are present only as a slight bitterness in the finish of the beer.
Mouthfeel is good.
Drinkability is OK. A nice mildly flavored beer that is easy enough to drink but lacks in complexity.

I found this on tap in Monterey.
Gold, it had no head, only an exceedingly thin white ring that soon disappeared.
Aroma is mid and simple, but firm and very pleasant - grain, apple, and rather like a solid pale lager/basic wheat beer.
Taste is better, a nice full grain, apple character with a hint of grass and a long cracker finish. It's simple but enjoyable, crisp yet with firm flavour. It is lightly on the sweet side. Overall, it is a good, solid, if fairly basic wheat beer. I think it should be classed more properly as an American wheat rather than kristalweizen, but of course the lines can be blurry.
Serving type: on-tap
