Clear yellow colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells of toasted grain and lemony hops. Faint caramel scent.

Starts out toasted grain and wheat cracker with a lemon hop taste. Little bit sweet. Slight mineral flavor.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall a light refreshing beer but not a great one.

Beer #31 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

Lots of grain on the profile of this one. Mild toasted tone to it as well. The toasty edge shows more on the nose than it does on the flavor. But it's still even enough to be a pleasurable drinker. In fact, I think I appreciate this one more than any of the other beers I tried tonight.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.0 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of short lived, white frothy head. A very short ring of lacing is left.

3.0 S: Clean and lightly grainy. Light neutral malt sweetness and grassy hops. Not bad, but needs more power.

3.5 T: Like the nose, this is tasty, but lacking strength. Still a good beer though. Grainy malts with a light neutral sweetness. Grassy hops. Easy drinking.

4.0 M: Light body. Clean, crisp, and refreshing. Light creaminess to boot. Good here.

3.5 D: I wouldn't mind having a few of these. Very clean with a good, although light, taste.

12oz bottle (bottled 7/29/2011 - thanks for bringing this one up Dad) poured into a weizen glass. Pours a pale, slightly greenish yellow with almost no head. Nice bright carbonation - which it turns out might be the only thing going for this one....

Aroma is grainy, ricey, a hint of corn. Something a bit sour or acidic in the nose.

Taste follows nose: grainy, watery, lemony, dry.

Crisp clean finish.

Reminds me a bit of a K├Âlsch. Definitely not one I'll be coming back to. And really not sure what to do with the other five from the six-pack. Might be a good one to reset my palate?

Edit: As I'm finishing the last of this six-pack (all of which I drank from the bottle except the one described in this review), I'd only add that the aroma was more fruity and less sour when consumed from the bottle. Overall this was still the epitome of the average beer - but it was better when I drank it from the bottle than from a glass.
