Sampled in a 4 ounce glass while at the brewery/restaurant on May 31st while in Topeka, Kansas for the weekend. Wrote down some notes while sampling their brews. Alcohol content is 4.6% (ABV) and 14 IBU's.

Served at the table so I didn't see the actual pour. The color is a very hazy straw-yellow in color with a white foamy head. Spotty lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of wheat with a hint of lemon. The taste is the same with also a hint of light spice. A tasty brew!

A - Poured a very cloudy, golden yellow color with a bubbly, two-finger head of white foam. The short lived head left some trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of cracked wheat and some spiciness. A touch of lemon.

T - Nice spicy character up front with a good wheat flavor. Sweet with just a slight citrus flavor.

M - It was crisp and sharp. A light bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a nice wheat ale. I think I like it better than their County Seat Wheat.

Gold Medal American style wheat ale. Pours a hazy pale yellow color without much of a head. Smells of wheat with a light lemony citrus scent. The taste starts off with some light citrus flavors that fade to some wheat and cereal malts. Ends with a lottie bit of spicy and citrus hops. Medium ro light body goes down pretty easily. Pretty good APWA, light and refreshing without compromising much on the flavor. Pretty run of the mill APWA but delicious nonetheless.

This beer doesn't look or smell much different than other wheat beers you might see, but the taste is excellent, there's a zesty mouthfeel, and it's easy to drink. No hops to speak of, and not over carbonated, but somehow there is a zip to the flaver. An excellent choice.

On tap at the brewpub in Topeka in mid-August 2009.

A: Typical of the style. This was a fairly hazy yellow-grain color with minimal white head and some lacing as the beer went down. Much cloudier than the filtered version we tried as well.

S: Obvious wheat malt that was fairly clean, although there was a bit of chemical-type sweetness, although diacetyl was fairly minimal in this brew compared with many of the other lighter beers we had here.

T: This one had minimal amounts of the buttery diacetyl taste, while many of the others we sampled had quite a bit. That flavor was a bit underneath, as the predominant flavor was a slightly-sweetened raw wheat flavor, which was actually fairly refreshing.

M: Light and crisp with a moderate amount of carbonation. No alcohol presence.

D: Pretty drinkable, as the style often is. However, the flavor profile was fairly bland compared to top examples of the style, and trace amounts of diacetyl kept this one from being all that drinkable.
