Pours golden with a large white head that slowly settles to a lasting cap. Web-like lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang and a hint of fresh grass.

The taste is mild, but pleasant: grain, a touch of honey and a fruity wheat tang in the clean, crisp finish.

Very quaffable, smooth and outstandingly refreshing.

It is what it was meant to be - a refreshing pale wheat ale. While it's still basic, it has more character to it. Wheat malt is well-used, and just a subtle hint of hops, yet has a dry-ish finish. Very "sessionable".
