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

This one pours a hazy golden brew, with some floating particles and an average, white head with very little retention.
Aroma is wheat-like, yeasty, cloves perhaps and some citric fruits, most noticeably oranges, but the smell also fades away quickly.
Light to medium in body, it is midly hoppy, perhaps more than I like for a wheat ale (I know, this is a pale wheat ale), but also has some cardboard taste in there suggesting oxidation.
Average, and I believe there are many better wheat ales out there, imports and americans.
