Served on draft in pint glass. No significant aroma. Sour aftertaste. No notes typically found in wheat beers. Too many hops for a wheat beer but not enough hops to add flavor. First time ever disappointed wit a Capt Lawrence.

A: hazy; deep gold in color; 1 finger moussy white head that receded to a wispy cap; very nice lacing;

S: floral with tropical fruit in the background; maybe a hint of bread;

T: not a lot of flavor; a little spicy up front; a touch of citrus and floral at mid-palate; moderate bitterness at the finish; bitterness lasts a long time;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: refreshing; makes you want another sip; easy drinking;
