Purchased as part of "build-your-own-six-pack" at local grocer. Poured a medium foamy head on a cloudy, light yellow body. Smell was certainly "wheaty", as was the taste, but I detected very little if any sweetness. No citrus or anything of the kind as is usually present in the style. Not too thick, easy to drink, but not as good as others in the style. The adding of a lemon helped alot. Good, but not great.

Chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler. Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a very thin small white head. Some lacing as seen but not a lot. The aroma is of wheat and not much else. The taste was of the wheat but not over powering. Very easy to drink and smooth actually. Refreshing and crisp. Overall a great summer brew.

I had this at a local eatery as the featured beer of the week; which puts it an advantage over Bud, Heineken, etc.

They served the beer with a weird glass (skinny cylinder middle with bubbled out top and bottom).

I got about two fingers of head on my first pour. It looks fine for the style... and I immediately go in for a smell of nothing. There is literally no smell to this beer. I blew my nose thinking that it was a sinus issue. But this beer has no real smell. It doesn't smell bad, which puts this beer in front of all the other offerings by the bar.

The flavor is equally bland. This makes me say that you could pair this with anything. It won't make the food better, but it also doesn't hurt anything you pair with.

I grade this beer: meh.

A- Slightly hazed apricot. I expect a bit more haze from a wheat beer. Head is billowy white head. Head retention is decent.
S- The aroma is.... lacking. There is virtually nothing there. A bit of musty wheat is all I am picking out of this.
T- Again, there is virtually no taste there. There is some musty wheat and a bit of lemon. That's about it.
M- Very light. Carbonation is high.
O- It is inoffensive, but there is almost nothing there.
