In my opinion this is just a "good, solid" beer. It's not fantastic and won't set the world on fire, but it's good. I think it has a very clean flavor. The color is also good...more clear than I'd expect for a wheat beer. The smell is also good...I also smelled a yeast/wheat smell. The mouthfeel and drinkability are also good. Like I said...it's just a good, solid beer. I'll say it ranks as "better than most" in my book.

Poured into a clean pint glass

A: I think this is the clearest beer I have ever seen. very little carbonation and less that finger width of head.

S: very faint hops.

T: slight bitterness with nothing else for taste.

M: very thin, smooth slight carbonation.

O: There is really nothing to this beer. Very slight hops taste and nothing, absolutely nothing else

By and large an unimpressive beer. I know a lot of people who drink this as their beer because it's affordable, but you get what you pay for. It's drinkable, but only as a last resort. The flavor is very bland, with little distinction, but it isn't distinguished or otherwise worthy of note.
