Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a one finger of head of pure white foam. The fizzy head fades very rapidly leaving a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a wheat bread smell mixed with some aromas of a citrus nature. The citrus is mainly of a grapefruit and lemon smells but contains some light orange smells as well. Along with these is the faintest bit of a grassy smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slight wheat flavor with the wheat gaining strength as the taste advances on. Upfront the taste also has a light graininess to it, with very minimal sweetness. Moving on from the start however, the graininess fades out a bit and a very light orange sweetness that was detected in the nose comes to the tongue. Along with the orange citrus, other citrus flavors of a light lemon taste comes to the tongue as well. With some hay-like and grassy flavors that develop late in the taste, one is left with a very lightly citrus sweetened and moderately wheat and grassy flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the style it is rather decent as the lighter body and higher carbonation make for a more refreshing brew all while not over-accentuating the grassy or hay flavors which would likely pull away from the drinkability.

Overall – Nothing too outstanding, but refreshing and easy drinking none the less. A sort of average wheat ale overall.
