Hits those darker in the shade golden yellow notes. The wheat doesn't obscure the clarity in this one so much. 1/2" white head. Good retention. Aroma of wheat.

This one really pushes the wheat and barley aspect. There's a lot of heavily hopped pale wheat beers, but this one keeps draping wheat all over the place, there really isn't much else competing with it taste wise. Carbonation is high. Mild citrus note behind the wheat.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Ridley’s Family Markets in Laramie, Wyo.
Price: $7.99 for a 6-pack (I think)
Purchased: Nov. 18, 2016
Consumed: Nov. 20, 2016
Reviewed as: American Pale Wheat Ale
Misc.: Best by Jan. 24, 2017

Jason didn’t want to take his two leftovers from a 6-pack home, so I brought them back for me. Didn’t know much about the beer, but I knew that Odell has some quality stuff.

Poured a medium-to-straw gold yellow hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. For the style, excellent uneven foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled cloves, a touch of banana, maybe banana bread, caramel, grass, hay, corn, unknown spices and even cantaloupe and/or melon. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste followed the nose nicely. This is very nice and refreshing. Cloves, honey, grass, hay, corn, bready yeast, cereal, peppery spices, lemon zest, faint Circus Peanuts candy, banana bread and some caramel malts. (Taste - 4.00)

Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, refreshing finish. (Feel - 4.00)

For the style, this nailed it. Very good. (Overall - 4.00)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clean golden with an average head of off-white suds, and little to no lace.

Aroma: Crisp wheat malts, caramel, and maybe a bit o’ honey or maple. Nice.

Taste: Malty and sweet, but not overly so. Hint of fruit and citrus hops underneath. A subtle and well-balanced, ultra-drinkable ale here.

This is one of the most disappointing beers i've ever had. I remembered this brewery as being pretty good but this beer is really bad. It says it's a wheat beer but it barely tastes like wheat. The only thing it tastes like is rice and corn, mostly corn, with a tiny amount of wheat and hops to the point where you can't even taste them.

This tastes almost nothing like a wheat beer, the closest thing this tastes like is Coors. It seriously tastes like an american adjunct corn syrup lager. I can see why the bros gave it a good score because they love pbr which is almost pure corn syrup. I hate corn beers because they give me a headache and they taste like balls.

I don't know what the hell they were thinking with this beer. I'm guessing they were trying to make something taste like what people are used to drinking which is coors, miller, pbr. They just made a corn beer with a tiny amount of wheat added so they could call it a wheat beer.

Not much of a head, even with an aggressive pour. This is a good refreshing summer beer, but it's nothing remarkable. The taste is a bit lemony, but it's not really tart at all. It's well named: "Easy Wheat."
