Reaching for the bottom of the Lawrence barrel. I probably drank this once before and only got a 10oz pour to actually rate it. That is twice too many. Cloudy dark yellow, dirt golden in color. Aroma is raw malt, husky and dirty, no finesse. A slick sweetness as well. Flavor is similar, not well attenuated, a heavy body. A bit of a mess. Not light and refreshing. Eck.

Thorpe429 (5006) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Pours a bright clear golden color with a white head and a touch of lacing as it comes down. Smell is pretty much straight grain with a touch of sweetness. No real fruit esters or anything else of the sort. Taste is quite similar. Just a dry, semi-sweet graininess. Nothing terribly offensive and nothing off-putting, but not much to say about it. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Goes down smoothly, but thereís no real reason to go for the next sip. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-29-2010

Flavor is average malt (bread, hay, straw), average hops (earthy, spicy), and light esters (apple/pear). Medium body and carbonation, low warmth and creaminess with a medium sweet finish.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Nice, but not as strongly flavored as I like a wheat beer to be. Thin light head that didnít last long, fairly carbonated, light aroma of wheat, citrus, and yeast. Tastes of wheat and bananas, with a bit of hops and citrus. Not bad at all, but Iíd like more what and hops bitterness
