Pours a clean pale yellow, with a white head. In the aroma, wheaty and sweet to dry honey. In the taste, lemon citrus, a wheat like bite, and rounded out with honey flavors of clove. A small bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry wheat and clove like aftertaste. Looks more like a pils, kind of thin and domestic like.

A friend brought this over to watch the first half of the BCS National Championship. I drank one but sat down to drinkn another after he left to seriously review it. Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass

Appearance - Poured a totally transparent pale yellow with a respectable head which quickly exited stage left. No sign of lacing. Carbonation came from the bottom to the head for some time after the pour.

Smell - Light grain, a sweetness which could be described as honey.

Taste - Similar to smell. There is a sweetness to the brew, but it doesnt really feel much like honey. Just a sugary, fruity sweetness. Not much in the way of a weizen taste. Lager like in taste

Mouthfeel - Moderately crisp finish. Certainly not as crisp as a super cold adjunct lager, but moreso than a heavy weizen. Good carbonation

Overall - Not a bad beer. It could be refreshing on a hot day, better than something really heavy like a hefeweizen for a day like that. You an certainly tell its filtered, because it comes out like a lager in appearance and finish. I wouldn't recommend it, but wouldn't turn one down given the right situation.
