look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear straw-colored B/M/C looking beer. Does have a decent head. Looks like a pale lager with a stubborn head.

Mild wheaty base in the smell, but a sweet hint of honey as well. It's mostly lagerish but with some tweaks. Certainly not unpleasant; underwhelming.

Sweetish wheat/lager flavor. Has a nice honey that translates to a slight lemon. Aftertaste actually better than the "taste."

The feel is a slightly bubbly lagery feel. Somewhat dry. It's a light, minor drin. Pleasant enough, though. Good for summer. Goes down easy for sure.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pale, golden, straw colored; small head; dissipates quickly

Aroma: Malty; sweet; grassy

Taste: Malty, juicy sweet start; slightly dry and bitter finish

Remarks: Had this on tap at the naval base in Naples for the first time. Thought it was very good. Bottled beer later wasn't as good.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

12oz can poured into a Weizen glass
A: Banana yellow, thick two finger head. Nice bubbles.
S: Honey and bananas.
T: Wheaty malt with subtle honey.
M: Smooth and mellow. Nice, easy to drink beer.
O: Nothing out of this world, but very solid. What it lacks in complexity it more than makes up in being a straightforward easy to drink beer, which sometimes is all you ned.
