look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Light gold, nice head.

S: A bit bitter, grainy scent

T: Good flavor for the style. A bit bitter, definitely get grainy notes up front. I get a hint of a caramel after taste, though I'm not sure what this might be from, possibly from the grain.

M: Good mouth feel, nicely carbonated. Cool and refreshing.

O: A decent ale for this style. I would drink more than one in a sitting. I highly recommend this to folks who are used to drinking nothing but MGD/BUD. This beer will not blow you away. I think a great positive for this beer is it being gluten free, this makes it a great option for those allergic to gluten.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Libbey craft pint glass.

A: Light orange/pale gold. Translucent. Small white head with ok retention and lacing.

S: Coarse grain, subtly fruity hop reminiscent of apricot.

T: Follows the smell, except the hop serves more of a bittering rather than sweetening role than in the nose. Soft wheat, a hint of sugary malt, wave of hop bitterness, ever-so-slight fruit notes from the hops and esters (unripened nectarine, tangy apricot), another breath of fresh grain and yeast in the finish.

M: Nice body for the style. Carbonation adds some creaminess to the palate.

O: A pretty good blonde ale. I think the hops could have been utilized a bit better in the flavor profile, which could have been a bit stronger in general, but still tasty and refreshing.

Didn't know quite what to expect from this beer, but being a fan of Two Brothers, I figured it was worth investigating. I have to say I was pretty disappointed. Pours a transparent gold color with a meager head that is soon gone. Smell is faint, but what's there is not all that appealing. Flavor leans toward the hoppy end of the spectrum with a wheat aftertaste (reminiscent of Bud Light Golden Wheat, to be honest). Overall, a pretty thin beer with little working for it in any regard. Two Brothers have far better brews than this.

pours from the bottle into a pint glass a clear bright gold color. a fingers worth of bright white head quickly settles to a thin cap leaving little lacing behind. smells are faint, but i can detect some grain, bready malts, spice from hops and light sweet fruits. the taste is bigger than the nose. all of the above blend together very well to create an easy drinking light tasting beer. mouthfeel is kinda thin but average for the style. overall this would probably be better for a long hot summer day, but it hit the spot on a cold winters night with dinnner just as well. plain and simple this is a nice beer.

Single from Marianos, "best by 4/11/12" so it's plenty fresh.

Poured into a tulip glass, it has a brilliant golden clarity to it. On top is a compact layer of white foam, creamy texture, leaving rings of delicate lacing. Okay retention.

Aroma is coarse and grainy, multigrain bread and slightly sulfuric yeast. Some malt sweetness and mild peppery spice from the Saaz hops.

Smooth feel, light to medium body. Floral, husky grains, light bready sweetness, pepper and yeastiness, with a dry clean finish. Simple and easy drinking, though it's often overlooked (took me years to write a review of it). Not the first 2 Bros. beer i'll usually reach for, but wouldn't turn it down either.
