Had this on tap at a PPF Chang's. It was served in a frosted Pilsner glass, so it was hard to get a take on it until it warmed a bit, but I still had a couple of fingers of an off-white head.
Smell and taste was a bit of citrus and malted wheat, although the wheat is fairly subdued. It's pretty flavorful for a summer ale. I got none of the alcohol or off flavors some reviewers seemed to encounter. I would put the body at closer to medium than light.
Easy drinker and serves its purpose well as a summer beer.
Serving type: on-tap
