look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Clear gold with a less than one finger white head, which fades fairly quickly, leaving spotty lacing. The aroma has wheat, grain, and a bit of a musty smell.

Tastes pretty much like it smells with wheat, grain, lemon, and biscuit malt. I have never been a fan of lemon paired with biscuit malt. To me it is bland and boring.

Light bodied with above average carbonation. Nothing to get excited about. A bland beer without much flavor, and not worth seeking out again.

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into minimal lacing. The aroma has a faint tangy wheaty quality, but it is quite hard to detect. Thr taste is similar to the aroma. Mostly open space. The mouthfeel is thin with moderate carbonation, and a watery texture. Overall, this is a bad example of the wheat beer style, and a bland beer in general. I will not drink this again.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear yellow, low head.

Smell: Pretty much nothing. I didn't quite rinse my glass enough so I got some rye from the previous beer I had been drinking.

Taste: Very light wheat, just a tingle of lemon.

Overall: I can see where the name comes from, this beer is light as air in aroma and flavor. Not a bad thing as light beers have their place. The ratings aren't great because there just isn't much there to describe, but this is a decent beer. Good for having several while watching the game.
