A: The beer is hazy straw yellow in color and has some fine yeast particles visible floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a short white head that rapidly died down, leaving only a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell in that it has flavors of wheat with additional notes of bready malts and slight bits of associated sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink but doesn't have much in the way of aromas or interesting flavors.

DATE TASTED: January 25, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner...OCCASION: finishing Clash of Kings, I believe... APPEARANCE: hazy, bubbly, thin-headed sallow gold body; nondescript otherwise; no lacing... AROMA: somewhat pungent, lemon dish detergent scent; some lager malts provide a backbone; slightest banana and apple... PALATE: medium-bodied slightly effervescent; almost sudsy in its aftertaste--fizzy...TASTE: such subtle flavors--lightly lemon; predominantly metallic ping akin to a pilsner; lacking a refreshing, clean drag--just dragging... OVERALL: I understand the attempt is a wheat ale, but Wheat Monkey straddles the styles without pulling the better elements of either into my mouth; instead, it's more like monkeying around, making use of a playful label and silly enough name to attract attention--by far the weakest of what was a successful mix pack...

A - It has a golden color with a slight haze. It is capped with an inch of off-white head.

S - I get a lemon grass smell.

T - The taste is a bland lemon grass.

M - Moderate to thin.

O - I do not think I would purchase this again unless it was dirt cheap. It is very boring.
