1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma of perm solution. Clear in appearance looking through the bottle with a dusty layer of yeast on the bottom. Pours clear until you roust the yeast and pour it in the glass. It seems like this beer can’t decide to be amstel light german style wheat or amstel light wit. The palate is thin, even for a wheat. Given the premium price, I’d expect something on par with Spaten hefeweizen or Hoegaarten. Bring back the Bud light wheat. At least it was a buck or two cheaper per 12, had fewer calories, and less carbs. Yep, I said it...1.5....1.5! The truth must be told.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Transfer from BA review on 1-19-13-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance –Pours a yellow-straw color with a light orange glow. Upon pouring there is a medium level of haze and a big white head. The head fades fast at first, but then leaves a persistent and relatively thick white head on the brew. Over time this fades and leaves a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a grainy wheat smell. Mixed with this are aromas of some lemon and light citrus hop as well as a somewhat papery smell.
Taste – The taste begins of a smooth wheat bread flavor with a light lemon flavor. Both flavors get stronger as the taste advances while the smoothness of the wheat diminishes to a more grainy and rough taste. At the end, the lemon gets even stronger and moves more toward a dry side, leaving a dry lemon grainy wheat taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is rather low in its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is light to average. The thin body suits the easy drinkability and light abv. of the beer well, although a bit higher carbonation may have been more appropriate for the style.
Overall – Ah nothing too exceptional, but not too bad. Average overall I would say and nothing to go out of our way for.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. There is a short description of the beer on the back label but it has no abv.
Appearance: It has a bright golden yellow body with lots of lively carbonation and a light foamy head. The head fades quickly.
Smell: The aroma has some bright lemony citrus and light white bready maltiness with just a slight touch of spice.
Taste / Palate: The flavor brings some mild lemony notes with light spice to its white bready base. The body feels light and refreshing and it finishes with very mild citrus hop bitterness. Overall it is a bit simpler than most Hefe Weizen beers but it is well balanced and quite drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour a clear gold body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is pretty light, some minimal floral hops, a little wheat, and some light pale malt. The flavor is very minimal, just a minimal touch of pale malt and wheat, fairly clean on the finish. Overall pretty bland and boring. Light bodied with very fizzy carbonation. Meh, a bit better than most Light beers, but not something I’d buy another bottle to have again.

Hazy straw pour with a thine white head. Aroma of wheat and burning plastic. Taste of wheat and some yeast, taste was alright...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, according to RB my 200th Hefeweizen (what an honor!). Lightly wheaten nose, a little lemon and citric spritz, pours pale yellow-golden with a bright white head. Taste is mildly sweet, very mellow and slightly slimy light-medium body, yeast and wheat overtones with light lemon. Not super clean, but refreshing and still somewhat bright.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a number on the label that reads: 227052-R0533. It looks like an unfiltered wheat beer with its very murky, cloudy pale yellow and hefty white head. Success on that part. The aroma is thin on wheat but heavier on the citrus along with a slight skunkiness...even though it is in a brown bottle. The body is light to medium. The wheat is a little more evident in the flavor than on the nose. It ends clean.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma is wheat, banana, cloves, and yeast. Sweet with that banana yeast taste. Body is a little light in the finish. Finish also a nice banana aftertaste and some spices.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours light golden with a fluffy white head. Solid head retention. Light citrus aroma. Banana, orange, wheat cereal and spice notes. Pretty solid wheat beer, but nothing outstanding.
