American Pale Wheat Ale |  4.90% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This American style unfiltered wheat beer is great anytime. The aroma is pleasantly grainy and sweet with a touch of honey. The appearance is pale yellow with minimal clarity. The flavor is not overpowering, and is quite quaffable. Honey Wheat has a low hop bitterness that is balanced out by the honey malt used in the mash. The mouth feel is smooth and crisp, and has medium to high carbonation. This beer is always a refreshing treat, and is available at our brewery year round.

On tap at the brew-pub. This is one of the more popular M. Street brews. Light, golden hue with a great off-white head. Very thin honey and hop based nose. Up front, this is bordering on a medium bodied beer; wheat flavorings mixed with, to no surprise, some honey. Large malt based body. Very one sided, yet easy to drink, great on a hot day plus it matches well with most meals at the pub!

Appearance- It has weizen look to it and a lot of foam.

Smell- A very light fruit, melon-banana smell.

Taste- Once again this beer was very light in flavor like a lot of their other beers. It was also more sour than bitter.

Mouthfeel. Medium with even carbonation.

Drinkability- Not horrible but could due with some more flavor to take out some of the sourness.

Rough filtering with 11 micron filter leaves enough yeast to give a slightly cloudy light gold Wheat beer with a persistant white head and lace. Malty sweetness is emphasized with Weyerman Honey malt that gives a very realistic honey flavor and aroma. Medium body and higher carbonation combine to increase Mouthfeel.

The ultimate session beer with lots of flavor.

The final beer review from this trip, with a stop at Morgan Street Brewery in St Louis.

Golden color and a bit hazy, not a lot of head or lace.

Great yeastiness, malty with light spices. Not a lot of honey.

Body was nice, pretty good for a wheat ale and quite easy to drink.

It's not an outstanding wheat but it ain't bad either.

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight honey, strong grain, and slight citrus. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean with a low carbonation level. Tastes of slight citrus, strong grain, hint of honey, pale malt, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good feel and appearance, but weak in body and aroma.

Poured this American Pale Wheat Ale in a pint glass, served on tap at the brewery. It pours a slightly hazy golden/copper color. It produced a thin white head, decent retention and lacing. The aroma smells of pale malt and a slight trace of honey and citrus. Light in body, this ale has a malted grain backbone, tastes of citrus, soft wheat and a trace of honey. Overall this is a below average brew, weak aroma, body, and taste. Not one that I will be ordering again.

This honey ale sits a light straw clear color with a light honey aroma. The flavors of honey and malty are immediately apparent, but do not over-power the senses. The hint of sharp spice helps to round off a very drinkable and well-built honey ale.

Part of a sample bunch, prior to the Packers/Rams game ( GO PACK!) Average hazy yellow wheat. Nothing special here. Aroma was grassy, and sweet. Flavor...seemed a bit, well, way too carbonated. Not much of a honey note detected. OK, but, not memorable.

Spring beer to go with Cardinal baseball - decent summer session brew. Pours a hazy golden yellow, low level white head. Light aroma of malted wheat in the aroma and taste, along with easy hints of the sweet honey.

Crisp and clean brew, although it did have just a touch of harshness in the finish. But not enough to really distract from the overall good flavor. I could drink this one all afternoon with no problem.
