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.

Pale amber with thin white head.
Caramel nose with hints of pine and lemon.
Toffee apple up front with some toasty granola, then light passionfruit, pine, and resin.
Vague pine cone (earthy, woody) finish and grapefruit rind linger.
Light, slight cling, round.
Too thin, with malt over hops, which don't do Simcoe justice. Drinks like Sam Adams, which is not a compliment. Amber for Dummies.

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.
