A clear golden straw coloured ale. Mildly effervescent carbonation, produced a thin half finger white head that subsided to leave a thin collar of lace. Some thin, sticky clumps present.

A decent smelling brew, although more appropriate for summer drinking. Then again its above freezing this night in Wisconsin, a nice treat for the Northwoods in late December. Some fruity wheatiness that hints at bubblegum, pale bready malts, and a hint of banana. Pleasant floral hops with a lemony zing.

A nice refreshing ale, will remember this come summer. Actually somewhat hoppy, the banana and bubblegum hinted at in the nose do not manage to assert themselves in the taste, but the bready pale malts do show up. The hops do make a statement with their flavours of lemon, a hint of grassiness, but also a tangy white grapefruit/piney finish.

A light, refreshing, crisp, and somewhat tangy brew. Gonna remember this for next summer. I suspect most of the tang, if not all comes from the hops as opposed to fermentation derived phenols. Really doesnt matter much to me as this is a tasty brew.

Nice session fare, perfect for summer refreshment. Likely approachable enough to serve to the BMC drinkers who arent scared to try something new. Glad I picked this up, will look for more this summer. Recommend it!

Appearance- Pours a two finger white head. Very carbonated. Color is bright yellow/gold like a adjunct lager.

Aroma- Not much here besides wheat and a little sweetness from the hops.

Taste-At the front some citrus hop and wheat are present. As it sits on the tongue some grain and bready malt shows up.

Mouthfeel- Clean and crisp. Light bodied

Overall- A solid beer that's perfect for the summer.

Serving type: can
