Poured into a weizen glass. Pours a light golden amber with thin white head that dissapates to patches leaving light, slippery lacing. Aroma of light, grainy lager malt, hints of wheat and honey. Light bodied with good carbonation. An odd take on a wheat beer, smelling and tasting much more like a light adjunct lager with additional flavors. There is some wheat, especially in the taste, and some nice light honey flavor, as well as a hint of clove, but this does not fit a wheat beer profile very well. The light honey is nice and the taste is more interesting than a typical adjunct beer, but that is faint praise. Drinkable and harmless, but should be reformulated to bring out the wheat character that would make this stand out.
