Choc pours a hazy cloudy straw gold, almost like an unfiltered Wheat beer. Had I known it was a Wheat Ale I would have kept the yeast instead of tossing it. Disappointingly there is no real head to speak of, as it rims the glass but really does nothing else. There is also no real aroma to this beer. Maybe a faint grainy thing going on, but not much else. The first taste is lemony, almost too much so, like when you accidentally bite into a lemon seed or hit the pith when eating one. Mouthfeel is light and borders on watery, with carbonation that adds a nice zing to the finish. I actually like the taste. As I mentioned, lemon hits the tongue first, before cereal graininess takes over and finishes things off. It has this kind of off key sourdough finish to it. It stands out against what is otherwise a very simple and straightforward flavor profile. I could see someone pounding a sixer of these down on a hot summer day or at a party. It’s a beer that would go really well with BBQ or outdoor events. For me, though I find it refreshing, I probably won’t be seeing it out again – there are far more interesting things to explore in today’s market.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a light orange body with a touch of hazy and sea of microbubbles supporting a thin white ring of foam.
S- The light hint of bread crust is almost caramel in character with a green herbal hint in the finish but overall very clean.
T- There is a soft cider note to the faint whole wheat bread crust that finishes with just a touch of sweetness and a green herbal candy flavor lingers for a moment after each sip. As the beer opens it takes on a watery taste.
M- The slight slippery texture on the tongue is scrubbed by the big fizz and that cuts the sweetness and the soft flavor aswell.
O- This is a very mild flavor beer that is clean but not much character. There were some slight stale qualities to the bready flavor but they were hard to pull out for sure.
