Bottle from Hyvee in Omaha, NE
Bottled November 2011
Poured into a Weihenstephaner weizen glass
Lakefront's American Pale Wheat Ale is a fairly generic, light wheat beer designed for easy summer drinking. While it may go down easily, there's nothing particularly memorable or interesting about the beer, its mediocrity for both flavor and style a serious flaw. In one word: boring. I will not seek this out again.
Pours a fluffy 1cm head of fairly small bubbles, white in color. Head recedes to a very thin cap atop the beer throughout my sipping of it. Minimal lacing along the sides. Body is a golden yellow, opaque due to my pouring in of the yeast. Carbonation visible along the sides.
Aroma of faint wheat malt and yeast. Fairly nondescript, have to inhale deeply to discover even this.
Taste is similar to aroma, with wheat malt contributing some flavor and sweetness, tied together with a very mild yeastiness. Again, rather bland, though about average for this style.
Body is medium-light in heft, carbonation is moderate and causes the beer to foam up pleasantly on the palate. Easily drinkable, somewhat watery. Finish is semi-dry.

I would rate Wheat Money right around what I would rate 312 as far as wheat beers go. I've had Wheat Monkey in a bottle and from the tap.
A- Has a golden-brown appearance, very similar to Green Line.
S- Has a distinct smell of sweet wheat.
T- Has a earthy taste of wheat with a hoppy finish.
M- Has a smooth beginning with nice viscosity.
I would recommend this beer with fish, burgers, steak, pretty much anything. Isn't too overpowering and wouldn't take away from the taste of any foods.
Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is hazy straw yellow in color and has some fine yeast particles visible floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a short white head that rapidly died down, leaving only a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell in that it has flavors of wheat with additional notes of bready malts and slight bits of associated sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink but doesn't have much in the way of aromas or interesting flavors.
