$2 pint Mondays are a wonderful thing for me, since I work next door to this brewpub. This beer, however, read on:

Described as a bavarian style hefeweizen, this beer had a faded banana yellow color, almost straw yellow, with a touch of haze and thin lacing sticking to the glass. The aroma is faint. Watery banana and medicinal phenols catch my nose. Uh oh...

The watery banana and echoes of medicinal phenols highlight the beer's flavor. If you took out those flavors, this would be like a prickly Bud Light. Bland for the most part, with some odd chemical flavor cooking. Buzzy carbonation lead the way into the aftertaste, which bland, bitter extract sits on the palate.

Back Street's beers have been hit and miss. Count this as a wide miss. Bland and offensive.
