BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tommyknocker Brewery
Colorado, United States
tommyknocker.com

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An American-style wheat ale brewed with malted. Low hopping rates allow the refreshing aroma and citrus flavor of a late addition of lemon grass to dominate. This unfiltered beer retains all of its protein, flavor, and some of its yeast, resulting in a traditionally cloudy appearance.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours very hazy orange amber color with a small foamy white head. The head fades rather fast leaving a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a wheat smell mixed with a good deal of some lemon and orange. Along with these aromas comes some lighter smells of grain and a little bit of grassy and hay smell.

Taste- The taste begins a wheat bread taste mixed with some sweeter flavors of an orange citrus. These flavors create a base taste for the brew, with the orange citrus taste growing slightly stronger as the taste moves forward. Along with the orange, a lemon flavor really kicks its way into the taste. With some grassy and herbal taste coming at the end of the taste, one is left with a wheaty and more sour citrus taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is rather thick for a brew of only 4.7 % with a carbonation level that is rather low. The thickness is great for the wheat flavors of the brew creating a more chewy feel. A little higher carbonation level would have made the brew slightly more refreshing in nature and matched the sourness slightly better, but overall the feel was pretty good.

Overall – A rather decent brew overall. A little bit on the sour side, but not bad overall.

Look: Pale, yellow, and cloudy like most lighter wheat beers.
Smell: Probably my least favorite part of this one - very weak with little to get excited about here.
Taste/Feel: A lot of lemon and grassiness. Very light and easy to drink.
Overall: Nice for the warmer weather, but not something I would want to have again.

i love wheat beers but this one has to be the worst wheat beer i ever tasted. it says ''with a hint of lemony-citrus'' but it's more than a hint and it pretty much ruins the beer.

Weak aroma and light mouthfeel but tasty, clean, smooth, and very easy to drink. This would be an all night beer without a doubt. Nice little wheat beer.
