A- poured to a copper, slight reddish color. Head was brownish white and tasted a little bitter. Left some good rings with every swallow.
S- Smell reminded me of a weak dark beer. Not that it was a bad thing.
T- Had that wheat beer flavor. Slightly bitter but yet slightly sweet. Not much after taste like Ive seen with other wheat lagers. Could taste some caramel.
M- Felt good in the mouth. Carbonation was just about right. Not a heavy beer.
D- I think I could drink a few at this time of year when it comes out. I wouldnt want to drink a 12er of them, the slightly higher alcohol content was noticeable.
