This is a nice crisp pale wheat. Cold, it has a thin head and faint but pleasant aroma. The citrus and yeast taste is very inoffensive.

As it should be, this is a very easy drinking and refreshing ale. I would probably never go out of my way to buy a large quantity of these, but it is a quality made product and a nice inclusion in the sampler.
