Purchased a bomber at the Madison Woodmans for the low price of $3.99!

Clear light yellow in color. Forms a smallish white colored head. Reduces down to a thin, patchy surface coating. Little lacing. Aroma is grains and corn with just a hint of wheat. Taste is similar though the creamed corn seems to dominate. Some very minimal citrus hops. Thin mouthfeel. Slightly creamy texture. Very minimal bitterness. In actuality this beer tastes like a slightly wheated adjunct lager. Easy drinking, but not exactly the pinnacle of the style.

8/3...brewery draft. Pours medium dark gold, patchy white foam lid. Woodsy wheat nose, very simple. Clean mouthfeel. Straightforward wheat flavor. Simple, clean, refreshing.

Thanks to AJ and Wayne for sharing this one!

Hazy orange with ample foam, irregular spotty lacing. Long lasting surface coverage.

Nondescript "beery" aroma, wheat and yeast, bread.

Clean and light bodied, leaning towards medium. Taut and crisp. Very simple and easy drinking. Overall there are no flaws, and it's refreshing and palate cleansing with food. Simplicity is underrated.
