Pale straw color and lightly hazey. There's some columns of sluggish bubbles rising to the top. No head or foam after the pour.

Straw, crackers, pilsner malt, a little grass, and maybe a little yeasty fruit aromas. Very subdued overall.

Flavor is light cracker, pilsner malt, and barnyard straw. Tastes earthy, very little yeast flavors noticed. Very plain, and watered down tasting wheat ale. Easy, bubbley, crisp palate makes for very easy drinking.

Like the Lakefront IPA so I thought I would try this one.

Pours a clear yellow with head that wants to go away. Not typical of a wheat beer. It should be cloudy with volumounous head.

Nose is grainy and not right

Taste is like a strong pilsner. Malty and some citrus but not the typical wheat beer.

Not enough carbonation to really give the mouth feel that is needed. Overall, OK to drink but the beer itself could be mistaken for a lager. Strange.

A: Very pale pastel yellow in color. Cloudy. Barely forms any head and what does form fizzes away quickly.

S: Mild, but appealing aroma of grassy hops and pale malt.

T: Fizzy, yellow beer. Taste is full of wheat and carbonation with some grassy hops and a mild medicinal aftertaste.

M: Aggressively carbonation and a light body gives this one a prickly mouthfeel.

O: A fairly average American wheat beer apparently brewed for mass appeal.
