Cloudy yellow-amber brew with a persistent one finger head. Smells of bread, yeast, and malt. Taste pretty much follows the smell, with a fair amount of bitterness, which i like. Mouth feel is on the light side with a fair amount of carbonation.

Haven't tasted many wheat ales, but this seems to match the description. If it is any indication of what beers in this category taste like, i should be drinking more American pale wheat ales.
