look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

The body presents a light gold color with a foamy, fizzy white head; huge carbonation bubbles. Cereal grain aroma with a slightly toasted scent. Mild biscuit flavor with a decent hop bitterness throughout. Medium-light body with a coarse feel due to the huge carbonation bubbles; semi-dry finish.

A rather inconsistent beer as far as overall quality goes. The aroma and flavor are pretty decent, but the appearance suffers from the large, frothy bubbles in the head, and the head quickly fades to a bare wisp. The mouthfeel also comes across as rough and unrefined. Not bad overall, but far from being a go-to beer for the style.

Floral, crackery, slightly sweet. Very refreshing. There is a bit of diacetyl that creeps in as it warms. Floral and crackery comes out in the flavor profile, as well. It might be on the sweet side, but it's tough to nail this style. More attenuation would help.

A: A nice light straw settles into a milky light golden burnish. What little head was gone in a few seconds.

S: Sweet honey of malt dominates over subtle sulfuric notes of apple and pear. Honey thistles.

M: Generally smooth and soft on palate. Dryness and crispness tends to be more apparent on some swaths more than others. Not consistent nor as refreshing as hoped. with a lower carbonation level.

T: Sweet wheat right off the bat, approaching that of Coors too much. Virtually no Noble hops flavor. Slight sulfuric and mineral tones set it apart from Coors, and let's me know I'm drinking a 'craft' beer. Better examples exist. Not recommended, too sweet.
