as straw as they come, with a little fluffy white topping.
smells straw, smells like a run of the mill commercial lager....
taste is okay. easy to drink. mild (very mild) hop bitterness. nothing amazingly eye-catching (or palate catching).
overall, for a weak abv, straw-colored whatever they wanna call it, it's okay. can drink many in succession, for certain, but would you want to? there is a certain richness to it, as a hefe might be, so that may slow down your session. but it's drinkable. it's likable. it's way better than the commercial crap i was originally comparing it to. for montana, i imagine this might be a 'lady's beer' ? ?

Hazy bright yellow, nice frothy head that leaves gobs of lace.

Wheat, lemon, slight pilsnery yeast note.

Biscuity, with herbal hops, a lemon and black pepper note, crisp grains, and a dry finish. Really refreshing.

Medium-light mouthfeel, crisply carbonated.

I was quite surprised by this. Thirst quenching and crisp in exactly the way I was looking for. Very nice.

12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Sept. 14, 2012 (purchased at BevMo! In La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for a variety12-pack price of $13.99 (w/ card) on Sept. 14, 2012). Finger or head. Golden pale with white head. Good retention on the top, none on the sides.

Smelled grass, lemon, honey, bread, cereal and hay. Surprisingly not too bad.

A lot more grassier taste than the smell. Got grass, bread, cereal, hay, honey and earth. Slight lemon sweetness on back end.

Light body. Thin texture. Above average carbonation. Long, grassy, watery finish. Refreshing.

OK for a wheat beer. Refreshing and a good summer brew.
