2.83/5  rDev -25.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12oz bottle into a Weizen glass

A: Pours a crystal clear, light straw yellow with just under 1 fingers width of bright white colored head. Head dissipates fairly quickyl and leaves effectively no lacing. Looks like an AAL, only brighter. Blah.

S: Fair amount of spice, a touch of wheat, lots of adjunct-y flavors, a hint of vinegar-like harshness. Yuk.

T: Very mild. Some spice, citrusy hops, and wheat. Again some adjunct-like flavors. Not a lot going on here, but I like the interplay of hops and wheat.

M/D: Light bodied, fair amount of carbonation, drinkability is good as is expected with such a light offering.

O: Overall, its meh. I'd probably never purchase this again, but its better than your standard Bud, Miller, Coors.

From bottle into a pint glass, where it belongs... Nice 2 finger white head, hangs for a minute... Clear translucent yellow body. Good carbonation. Smell is yeast wheat and citrus... Taste is crisp, clean, a bit hoppy..yum. Light, good seasonal summer beer. I would recommend to friends.
