Tasty, drinkable little beverage from Widmer. It's kinda like they took their hefeweizen and draped amber ale over it. Not bad.
A - Orangy brown body with soda-like bubbles.
S - Just a whiff of citrus.
T - Light citrus, hop and malt combo. Decently flavorful if not fantastic.
M - Middle of the road. A little bit of flavor rolls around the tongue. But it doesn't last long.
D - The subtle flavors, low sweetness and bitterness make this a smooth and very drinkable ale. Add to that the cheap price for a six pack and you have yourself a near perfect session beer.

Clear amber with a dense off white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is a blend of caramel, cascade hops, toast, brown sugar, citrus and toffee. The palate opens moderately toasty and caramel like, but exceedingly thin and watery. Hop character is mild, with a faint bitterness, mild flavor and a touch of mineral. A touch of honey is present. The finish is dry and lacks flavor. Rather mediocre IMO.

I had this beer at a wedding up in the mountains. It was the first beer I tried as there were many in the "beer tub", but I figured this was the heaviest one, drink it first before I started dancing like MJ
Pours a dirty amber with somewhat foamy head. Looks a bit light
Aroma has a muddle of hops and sweet nuttiness. The malt strains to be recognized and the hops sort of bow out. Sweetness comes out on top.
Flavor sees the grains struggle to keep pace with the sweetness. There's a sweetness from malt and grains and sweetness from sugar added, this is the latter. Seems fake and thin, lacking depth. The hops just don't add enough to hide this. Feels so-so.
Not a pour out beer, but I didn't wish to seek another...unless the other options were watery "pilsners".
