look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Server up a lightly hazed, pale yellow body with a thin coating of white head. Good lacing.

Smell: Ultra soft malt, a bit of wheat, a whisper of basic lemon. It's a wheat ale, alright!

Taste: Particularly pale wheat character with just a little bit of sweetness. Light lemon, very low bitterness. Drying, faintly lemony finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: As a light, refreshing, quaffable beer it works.

Pours a hazy pale gold or straw color from the can with a considerable head of loose bubbles that quickly collapses into the liquid beneath it. The nose is soft with a trace of spicy hop character, some subtle graininess, and a hint of lemon soda. Solidly medium-bodied. Quite approachable flavor-wise, Bearded Lady offers a bit of citrusy tartness, a fruity crispness not unlike a Golden Delicious apple, and a tangy, ever-so-slightly bitter linger in the finish. Enjoyable overall, but more of a quaffable beer than one to sit and ponder at length.

S- Wheaty, biscuity malt. Kinda pilsenerish.

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky straw color with a small white head. The aroma is full of wheat and malt. The taste is bready and has a nice malt flavor. Overall, an excellent American Wheat Ale.

I have the bearded lady in a can. I thought it was very good for a beer out of a can. I would definitely buy this beer again.

Poured from 12 oz can dated 4/13/2015 into snifter.

A: Slightly hazy pale lemon yellow with 2-3 finger soapy white head. Nice retention but left relatively little lacing.

S: Light cracker malts, and lemon peel. Subtle yeast eaters.

T: Pale wheat malts and light lemon notes.

M: Medium body with light crisp finish.

O: As an easy drinking summertime brew, this one works just fine.
