Clear brown body with a soapy off-white head that leaves an archipelago of lace. Nose is very bready, including toasted and crust, with an overtone of caramel and must. The flavor is equally focused on the bread and burnt grapes, with a bitter, chalky finish. Body is medium-full, with a surprising, but for once out-of-place, smoothness.
Missed the mark. The malts didn't provide much sweetness nor appreciable flavor, and the hops contributed only the negative aspects of bitterness. I'm still searching for a tasty example of this style.

Brilliant clear tiger-eye brown with a large cream-colored foamy head that clings.

Smell is light green pine, grass, corn, grape, toffee, and a touch of gasoline.

Taste is light and drinkable white corn, white grape, light wheat toast, and light pine with a hint of grapefruit.

Moderately sweet, watery and slick. Simply put: "Lite!"

poured from a 12oz can into a tulip. Swirl by 4/3/16, so just under the wire here.

looks pretty nice, deep amber coloring with a small off white head which dissipates to a ring. held up to the light, there is small carbonation, no cloudiness.

aroma is mostly some sweetness from the malt.

taste is a little on the sour side, not getting a lot of hoppiness, just in the finish. not an unpleasant taste at all.

Mouth is a comfortable medium.

Overall, a decent tasting beer. my first with this particular style. will try an pick it up earlier in the season next time to see what a 1-2 month old beer tastes like.

Pours a cloudy dark amber color with off-white/ivory colored head. Wheat, some citrus and pine, along with plenty of malty notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied and chewy. Finishes with biscuit and light citrus notes.
