I had this on draught in a hotel bar. It was served in a pilsener glass. It pours a hazy, golden-straw color with a small, egg shell colored head and minimal lacing. The smell was very subdued, with whiffs of biscuit malt, wheat, and some nondescript citrus. The taste featured crackery malt, lemon peel, and a touch of hops. None of the tastes stood out. This ale is light and dry and the 4.2% ABV is not noticeable. Overall, this ale doesn't offer much in the way of flavor or feel. It might be an acceptable lawnmower beer but I cannot see myself seeking it out again.

Pours an orange yellow with nice looking head and lacing. Nice malt flavor and traditional citrus backed wheat flavor with mellow hops in there somewhere. Great smell of wheat and citrus. Mouthfeel is thick and nice. Overall a pretty decent offering from Goose Island.

Look: Golden yellow, light white head leading to minimal lacing. Smell: Light lemon and malt but not overly strong. Taste: Similar... very light, refreshing, lemony and minimally hoppy. Feel: Crisp and refreshing. Overall: Nothing special, easy to put back... 10x better than any other macro though.

Light bodied and crisp. A hint of lemon and light hops. More filling than a light beer, but not a heavy-feeling beer. Drinks more like a lager with a little bit of wheat & hops. 4.2%. Would be a decent choice for a summer beer.

L- very pale, with no head or lacing. S- a typical wheat and hop smell. T- refreshing and crisp wheat taste. F and D- light and easy to handle. Overall, it's a good summer beer as well as, a beer I pick when I can't decide what I want.
