Served with a lemon wedge, which was discarded onto the patio table. Was served with a clear bright golden appearance, and a small creamy white head. The aroma was faint, I picked up some mild spices, but otherwise there wasn't much to it. Slightly tart flavour, with a bit of citrus zing to it, yet it seemed very subdued. The mouthfeel was close to medium-bodied, it was quenching, I'll give it that much. A fairly mediocre wheat ale, unfortunately it seems to be wanting to try and mimic Big Rock's Grasshopper.

from recent notes
A - Clear golden, thumb of head retained respectably
S - Bready grain, light bubblegum and adjunct
T - Grainy and leafy, some adjunct, and slightly metallic
M - Light and slightly crisp, only mildly bready
O - Just doesn't have the flavour or feel of a quality wheat ale, drinkable enough to pound a couple back at the pub but no worth putting a bottle in the fridge

This is basically a knock-off of Big Rock's Grasshopper, with the added bonus that at least it avoids the worst of Big Rock's trademark weird, funky yeast. It's clear, gold, anemic yellow in colour with even more anemic head. Smelling slightly of lemon and clove and maybe a hint of banana. Surprisingly dry, with an innocuous taste that goes down nicely but isn't hugely memorable.

Brewster's can do good things. This, however, is rather "meh".
