2.73/5 rDev -23.1%
Presentation: On tap pour into a mug.
Appearance: Dirty yellow, lots of carbination. Small head.
Aroma: Very sweet, lemon smell.
Taste: A little too much carbination for me. If you are not into the dark beers, this would be a good one to try, has a very sweet light taste.
Mouthfeel: Very light in the mouth with lots of carbination.
Overall: A nice taste, but not enough flavor for me.

Up for review is a 12oz bottle of Wheat State Golden Ale from Free State Brewing Company. Poured into a pint glass at room temp. Light golden, beige head. Nothing spectacular. Light malts and light body. Decent session beer I guess, just came off a bit thin for me.

Light and clear golden color, decent white foamy lasting head that leaves a lace in the glass. Has a flowery and light grainy aroma. Light malt and flowery flavors, nice hoppy dry and clean, crisp finish, light body and a watery mouthfeel, not all that bad for the style, might be a little better on a hot summer day.

Beautifully clear light golden hue, perhaps from fining and / or filtration. Sticky, thin, tight head leaves intricate lace. Lightly tart, grainy aroma, w/ a hint of herbal hops. Prosaic, clean aroma. A snap of bready sweetness upfront leads into a sweet/tart combination of token malt sweetness and wheat. Meager hop bitterness, but the high attenuation leaves little residual sweetness to be balanced. Crisp, thinnish mouthfeel. Trace herbal hop flavor. Finishes clean, dry and lightly bready. Quaffable and typically bland for style. Beautiful in appearance, but lackluster otherwise. Perhaps the polar opposite of their Owd Mac's Imperial Stout in overall character.

Pours a clear golden color with a one inch slightly yellowed head. Good retention and some lacing.
Aroma is decent. Sweet pale pils like malt dominats. A slgith hop is also present.
Taste is ok. A big pale malt sweetness, with a slight hop bitterness in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and lightly carbonated.
Drinkability is moderate. Decent flavor and low alcohol make this brew sessionalbe, but it's kind of boring and uninspiring. Pretty average.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewpub in August 2009.
Pours a moderate golden color with a bit of haze. Short white head that recedes pretty quickly. The nose brings some really light grain and a bit of very light hops. The flavor is mild grain, wheat, and hints of citrus. Creamy, light mouthfeel. Drinks okay, but nothing terribly special.
