A - great clean golden yellow color. weak head. high amount of carbonation

S - light wheat smell, with a small side fruit note.

T - crisp, clean, wheat flavor, with a bit of a kick.

M - light body, very clean and refreshing

D - pretty good drinkability, a slight lack of flavor and kick for me.

The others who were drinking this with me were amazed, and praised the beer all night long.

A fantastic summer beer. Very light and clean flavors of wheat, very light nose. Very nice white head, very clean finish. Excellent American Wheat!! Also it won sliver at GABF one year!

Didn't know what it was, waitress said its a pale ale, I said I'll give it a go. This is almost as bad as PBR at 3x the price

On tap at the W Austin Wet Deck, served in a Greenstripe plastic cup. Pale, slightly hazy yellow with a short-lived white head. Mild aroma of bread, wheat and grains. Similar flavor of mildly sweet bread, wheat and slight lemon zest. Light body and carbonation. Nothing exciting, but easy and refreshing in the hot August sun.
