Yellow beer, its a wheat beer so clarity isn't gonna be something that I would think as qualifying as ideal. Anyways, it is one of the duller yellow colors, the aroma was all about those grains. Wheat.

Clean taste, dry finish. Has a lot of wheat to it. No other frills, not hopped up, not a fancy yeast, no adjuncts unless you count the wheat itself.

Traditional cloudy straw-like appearance,aroma was floral and wheat beer-like.Kind of a weak body,a little thin does have some apple tinge in flavor to it.I pretty drinkable but not to comples,have had much better,not something I would probably recommend.

Appearance – Typical cloudy yellow body with a big head that pitted beautifully and laced the glass.

Smell – The yeasty aroma is coupled with spicy coriander and some serious pepper.

Taste – This is more like a Belgian Pale Ale. The yeast is there, but it’s the spiciness that carries the day. There’s also a peculiar tartness to this one that seems out of place.

Mouthfeel – This one is tangy and off-style.

Drinkability – The Blue Star was a struggle to get down.

Another good offering from North Coast. This beer poured a hazy golden color with a huge frothy white head that left great ammounts of lace down my glass. The smell was quite lemon-y with slight grain in there too. The taste was good but did not grab my attention too much. It had a good lemon flavor with a decent ammount of malt and just a touch of bitterness from the hops but nothing that was really interesting. Although is is not the most interesting beer in the world, it is still highly drinkable and would be a great choice for a session beer.

Presentation: 12oz short brown twist, no freshness date.

Appearance: Cloudy pale straw in colour with a frothy dense white head.

Smell: Mellow fruit and yeast with a mild floral noble hop aroma.

Taste: Quite flavourful ... crisp sweet barley and wheat malt, light fruit, hints of yeast, mild tartness and a light refreshing hop bitterness. This finish is well done also, fine floral notes and some drying grain.

Notes: A very refreshingly crisp brew, flavours are delicate and extremely enjoyable. A great American Wheat to be had here.

L: Pours gold with a slight haze that clears as it warms. Supports a 2” clingy white foam collar that slowly dissipates.
S: Spice and malt with traces of clove and citrus.
T: The yeast driven spice and fruit flavors are restrained. The Palate is mostly crisp, bready wheat malt with traces of lemon.
F: Medium body and medium high carbonation.
O: A hearty, drinkable summer beer.

Pours a cloudy pale straw color out of 12oz bottle, no date. The white head gushes at first, but doesn't stick around for long.

The aroma is domainated by grain. It tastes like a wheat beer, heavy on the wheat, barley, and malt, but has a nice crisp, well-hopped finish.

It's light bodied, but displays good complexity for the style. Very drinkable. A very good choice for a summer beer.

Pours hazy golden color with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is wonderful, cascade hops. Taste is hop bitterness, not much more. Doesn't linger in finish very long. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with a little bite from carbonation. This is a great summer beer, too bad it cost $10 for a six pack or I would drink this more. If you like American wheat beers and hops, you'll like this.

Lots of carbonation and haze, a little dark yellow thing going on, good head. Aroma was husky wheat.

Dry finish, gritty taste, seems like the malt percentage that is wheat is really high on this one. A very agreeable beer when that's what you are looking for. I wonder why this isn't more popular given some of the ones that are. Good hydration beer.
