12 oz. Brown Bottle. Has Freshness date printed on bottle.

A: Pours clear golden yellow. Nice large white fluffy head. Substantial amount of
carbonation can be seen. Head retention is thin and the lacing is normal.

S: Light, crisp, wheat, citrus, and sweet malts. Really just normal.

T/M: Light bodied. Crisp. Wheat and sweet malts. Grains with a light hop bitterness.
Has a somewhat abrasive mouthfeel which I would consider unfaltering. The finish is
pretty clean with just a hint of a wheat aftertaste.

O: This light on taste summer beer is average, nothing special here. It does what is
needed of it on a hot day. I guess that's all you really need with this style of beer.

Enjoy By 07/15/13

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that quickly dies down to a very thin cap

S: Bready malt, a light fruitiness, and a hint of wheat. Not much, but what's there is decent

T: Lightly fruity to start and then goes into the maltiness which is bready and wheaty. Again, not a lot going on here but it's still good

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: An easy drinking summer brew with just enough aroma and flavor to entice the taste buds on a hot summer day. Simplicity aside, it's still a good brew
