Had on tap at Craft Conundrum in a sampler; serious diacetyl infection. Looks like a nice unfiltered wheat but almost no hop presence in the nose or flavor...basically movie theatre popcorn. Hopefully bottles and cans didn't get it.

@ Closed for Business

Served a foggy pale yellow color. A small, wispy white head sits on top and leaves a few strings of lacing behind. Aromas of soft wheat and a slight lemon sweetness. Peppery, noble-like hops, wheat, cereal grain, and a vague citrus element in the flavor. Crisp with a slight bitterness. Simple and refreshing...a decidedly not hoppy attempt of a fairly loose style.

On tap at Closed for Business.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color/ A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Musky, husky wheat in the nose. Peppery, herbal spice and a light bitterness lingers.
T: Fairly simple here. The musky wheat flavor, peppery spice. Cracker and grainy like malts and a linger bitterness.
M/D: A light to medium body. Moderate carbonation, that is a bit on the water side for me. Still, I can drink a lot of this. Easy and enjoyable.

A simple wheat, with a bit of a hoppy finish. Very enjoyable. Though nothing that will particularly stand out from the crowd.

growler into a hefe glass

A: Pour is a crystal clear, very pale straw yellow with a billowing almost 3 fingers width of bright white head that leaves a few small patches of lacing.

S: Wheat, some hoppy spice, hay, herbaceous, lemon and orange citrusy notes. Surprisingly aromatic for the style.

T: Follows the nose, with hop spice and a big wheat character being the first flavors I notice. There are some sweeter notes, a surprising amount of bitterness, lemony citrus. Full flavor for the style.

M/D: Medium body, moderate carbonation which is lower than many in the style, drinkability is good.

O: Overall, a very nice example of a style that is generally rather blah. Along with Lil Sumpin Sumpin, probably the only other American Pale Wheat worth drinking. Nice on this hot Charleston day, when on the way to the brewery my car was reading 102 degrees!

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a pale yellow color and a hazy texture. There was a big, creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A pretty strong wheat element in the aroma, along with some citrus as well.

T: Tasted of wheat (though more mildly than I expected), a bit of malt, and some lemon in the finish. American Pale Wheat Ales are rarely that flavorful or complex, but this one has a crisp, likeable taste.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: COAST has brewed a good beer in a weak style. It's solid and easy to drink.
