Heard the advertisements, finally get the chance to try...
Starts off nicely with a bright, clear gold colour, frim thick white head and some traces of lacing..head retention was a bit of a let down.
very slight citrus peel aroma mixed with an annoying malt graininess. S;ight. slight hint of pepper..
Tough to get beyond the grainy malts here..some decent citrus flavours and the pepper spice in the end add a dash of flair, but over all nothing really blends together here.
Not sure one whould even bother with a lemon wedge as none of the traditional wheat bite is here. actually quite watery and bland until one counts about 3 Mississippi's...
Lot's of better attempts out there than this..
