Crisp, bright flavor shines like city lights on Lake Michigan. Hazy and unfiltered, our award-winning Urban Wheat Ale's flavor flows from start to finish.

On tap at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Ahhmazingly cold and refreshing beverage on a hot day. Taste is smooth with overtones of the wheat as expected. Will buy again.

Mild aroma, grains and some malty. Taste was light, crisp, with a hint of bitter finish. Feel was thin. This is a highly crushable brew, good for hot weather tailgating, or any situation where you want to avoid getting too full but want some libations. Would definitely drink again.

12oz can. Date stamp on bottom is '02OCT23'.
Cloudy, pale gold colored body. Two fingers of white head retreat to make a cap and ring. Leaves behind scattered strings of lacing.
Aroma of wheat and floral/citrus hops.
Taste is bright and crisp. Flavors are wheat malt, some yeast, and citrus hops. Aftertaste is of short duration.
Medium mouth feel. A little drying. Good carbonation.
Easy drinking beer with an acceptable, not objectionable, taste profile.

I personally like the redesign, hardly the reason I tried these tho, had first time at a Cubs game in the club, tried something new…
Nbsoc;
A new generation ‘Miller or Meister Brau,’ when purchased fresh this actually is a great American beer. Aroma and flavor provide some Cascade hop resin and Millennium bittering add a lot of character to this very drinkable beer! A lot of people hunt for ‘dry hopped orange juice’ beer, I personally prefer a hoppy lemon grass flavor, and that comes nicely with this beer. Head starts as a great blossom, good for this style, dissipates sort of fast but does not effect the whole experience, if anything drinking it with head into drinking it with no head is part of what adds a hazy character and some dynamic interest to the glass when drinking a deceivingly simple beer. Minimal malt presence and small noble hop spices draw this style back to a more traditional result, as well as some actually quality feeling wheat, a lot of elements add to the presence and quality of this beer.

Definitely will drink again, and would recommend for summer gatherings, personal recommendation to anyone just trying to have a good beer without a lot of thought and at a great price point! Tell ‘em Colossal Cascade hops sent ya! Hahahahaa

I think the cans look dumb, but the pour is light, and it tastes like a solid hoppy wheat beer. Overall, not bad.

I know I have had this many times and was surprised it remained unreviewed (at least by me). Flavor is kind of thin but does have some tartness and citrus notes. Unfortunately, the carbonation strangles the early flavor after which the aftertaste is watery and kind of fizzles out. Just not close to what I'm looking for in a wheat beer.

A light, refreshing summer offering. It doesn't quite come off as a wheat ale. A subtle lemony citrus character with a light biscuit flavor. Very crushable and good for what it is
