Poured the Hop Sun into a pint glass.

A- The beer pours light yellow with a finger of white head that fades rather quickly. It looks like the standard BMC beer. This beer has to be filtered because you can see right through it. Not your typical wheat here.

S - Smells ok, but does not fit the profile of a summer wheat beer. Clear, clean, and bit too much hops for a wheat. Think pale ale or IPA for the hop profile.

T - Something funny about this one, is it Pledge in a bottle? Good God its not that bad. Some more hops, light, I mean really light wheat flavor at all. Just not working here.

M - Smooth beer, medium to high carbonation.

O - Not what the doctor ordered, its not your typical wheat beer here. Its not a drain pour by any stretch; by contrast, not a bad summer beer. Close to a pilsner though.

Poured from tap at tap and mallet Rochester. Pours a golden clear color with no head. Mellow hop and pine aromas...some lemon. Taste is wheaty mellow hops with a big lemon finish. Its somewhat bitter but still pleasant. Its easy to drink and a nice summer brew.
