Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. this is a clear golden yellow beer with a bad aroma and even worse flavor. Another extremely poor tasting beer from World Brews

Pours a clear, pale orange with a one-finger white head that dissipates quickly. Medium carbonation. Good Pilsner smell with plenty of yeast and hop. Quite sweet.
Very blah taste. Would be ok on a super hot day.

Pours a quite deep brown/ruby.
Aromas are bready malts and so is the taste.. Quite odd, instead of summer ale I find myself drinking an English style bitter, or ESB.
Wrong labelling? wrong bottling? No wheat here......

For 3.50 for a six pretty good summer ale. I would buy it again!

Appearance: pours aazy yellow with some foam

Smell : It smelsss of malt, wheat, and some d grassy hop aroma

Taste: Some very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip.

Mouthfeel; It has lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel.
Overall, this is a pretty good average beer for price and fairly drinkable.

Very refreshing beer, good sessionable wheat ale . Compares favorably name-brand beers.... I chilled this down in the freezer then poured into standard pint glass (I have no fancy pants glassware!). Next time I will add a slice of lemon, I think that will make even tastier.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, and some mild grassy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with an alcohol flavor on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a slightly below average beer that is fairly drinkable but quite simple and unexciting.
