This poured out as a very pale and clear looking light yellow color. The head was white with hardly any retention and no lacing at all. The smell of the beer is sweet with grain, some wheat and corn. The taste is similar to the nose here on this, the sweetness is there as well as the corn and a subtle breadiness also. The mouthfeel is very light, modestly carbonated and kind of watery. Overall the beer is decent but nothing something I would need to have again.

Appearance - Pours a hazy straw color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates quickly. Leaves a nice lacing.

Smell - I can barely pick up an aroma. Just smells like wheat mostly.. along will a very light trace of citrus.

Taste - Seems to be quite watery.. It has a strong wheat flavor (which I like). Pale malts, a medium sweetness, grains, and bread. Has a weird bitter citrus flavor in the finish..

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.

Overall - This is just a very simple wheat ale. No special ingrdients, just mostly a plain wheat flavor. It's very drinkable in my opinion, just unsophisticated is all..
