Can to nonic pint glass, the appearance was a glossy yellow color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace to leave barely any lace.
The aroma had some citrus sweet pulp, sweet wheat, light grassy sweet and a touch of floral gravitated into the final blend.
The flavor moderately guided the sweet citrus pulp to the wheat and grassy sweetness. Floral leaned way back. Aftertaste was sweet wheat with the citrus pulp.
The mouthfeel was light bodied with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty decent APWA, leaned sweeter for the most part but perhaps could have used a bit more bitterness in the hops or even a little tang from the wheat. Still, I could probably give this another go, to be honest.

I tried the Bearded Lady at the Pie Factory in Florence, Alabama. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that left some lace. The scent had hints of lemon. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was some biscuit and lemon presence. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer.

A - cloudy murky faint melted butter yellow. Billowy foamy bubble bath head. 3.25

S - honey and flour. Very weak. 2.5

T - too caustic and hoppy. No maltyness. 2.75

M - slightly fizzy hoppy after burn but otherwise watery. 3

D - overall a disappointment. Weak and watery with only occasional refreshing moments. Not bad, just unremarkable in any way. 3.

Another Good People masterpiece. A solid hops edge masks somewhat the more subtle yet still enjoyable wheat and malt undertones. Very refreshing, highly recommended.

Quite sessionable with a sturdy hop-profile. While not too hoppy in-and-of itself, I felt that the hoppiness did overpower the wheat flavors from the malt.
