Thanks to younger35 for these beers in a trade. He included a second one because he's da man.

Pours a beautiful golden yellow into budweiser goblet recently purchased for 1.99 at the local thrift store.

Smells sweet, wheaty, lemon shavings, I wish tobacco dip smelled this good.

You can taste it before it hit your mouth. hoppy, sweet, wheat, like an alcoholic lemon head candy with hops.

What a fantastic beer, i'm saving the other one for a sunny day. Perfect beer for this style, stop reading this and go buy one...

A: Light, hazy gold, almost yellow with a thin, white head that dissipated.

S : Light nose of (citrusy) Amarillo hops and sweet malt.

T: Similar to the aroma. Some light citrus from the Amarillo hops with a forward wheat malt and a subdued sweetness. Floral hop flavor with moderate bitterness in the aftertaste.

M : Medium carbonation with a light, creamy body.

D : A pleasant take on an American wheat beer. God, light citrus and hop flavor plays well with the wheat malt. I really enjoy the use of Amarillo hops.
