3.07/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Hazy, dark yellow, with a filmy, white, sorry excuse for a head.

Smell:A very faint bouquet. Light citrus, and nothing else, not even after attempts to warm the beer.

Taste: Faint citrus and apricot flavors mix with yeasty, bready malt. Residual sweetness and a slight citrus tang in the finish add some much needed interest but not enough to save this beer. Some bitterness comes into being later on.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation. A medium-light body that wavers between watery and crisp.

Overall: Not terrible, but could be so much better. I actually liked the bread dough taste, probably because not much else was going on here. Not terrible, but so far from good, it's sad.

... is a filtered, wheat lager with a nice mild character. Flaked oats add a touch of mouth feel and body to the beer. It has a mellow, slightly sweet, grainy flavor with low bitterness. A great beer for any time you just want a clean, easy drinking beer.

The given description of the beer. Very smooth in all aspects and, as a result, has no prominent outlying characteristics. The aroma is notable but otherwise this beer is entirely mellow and lends itself more to refreshing the drinker as opposed to providing any sort of extreme taste adventure.
