Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a clear yellow body with a one finger white foamy head that concaves a bit and softly clings to the edges, nice lookin’ filmy head of a valley appears after a minute. Some carbonation is seen rising. The smell was a light citrus, lil’ bit of bubblegum but really subdued, light wheat. The taste took all of the previously mentioned flavors combined nicely, sweet sticky aftertaste and finish. The palate was light and sessionable. Carbonation seems a bit under-carbonated for the style but actually I think I’m starting to like my APWA’s this way, becomes a bit smooth and creamy. Overall, actually, I think I like this one, it would be great on a hot summer day, despite the other reviews on this one, I say give it a try. There’s a nice refreshing quality to this beer and probably doesn’t have enough hops for the hopheads to go crazy about, but hey, its an APWA, whaddaya expect.

Had on-tap at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. I got this after the keg of the beer I did want blew. I didn’t exactly want it, but I hadn’t had it, so why not try it. Dirty Blond has an orange juice sort of color with a lot of haze. Nice little head on top of it. Decent lacing. It looks pretty good. The smell and taste are almost the same, but the smell is a bit better. This tastes like I imagine a combination of Bud Light and orange juice might. This has a sort of flavor that doesn’t shout "QUALITY"... it tastes somewhat cheap. But, it’s inoffensive and easy drinking. The mouthfeel is quite nice on this brew, which is good, because I’d not recommend this beer if it weren’t for that. The main problem I have with this beer, as stated, is that it tastes cheap. There’s not much of a hop presence at all. I taste sorts of corn and cheap grains and such. Not bad, not particularly good. This would be a fine option for people trying to step into craft beer, as it’s inoffensive, tastes like it could be a Shock Top sort of creation, and there’s virtually no bitterness.

From bottle. Dusty and metallic notes. Mild sweet notes with no hop character. Dull golden amber clear with haze, topped with thin off-white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts with dull sweet green tea, some neutral fruity character and light chalky notes. No discernible hops character or bitterness, with watery after.

beerfest5 (1059) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 31, 2014
Not terrible, but very little flavor here. Sort of the equivalent of the pale lager in ale form. Hints of orange zest and lemon, can be a good lawnmower beer I suppose.

Draft was a citrus aroma with a medium haze. Pretty dry for a wheat beer. Finish leaves me looking at the menu for what my next beer will be.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is coriander and orange with some wheat, pretty nice actually. The taste, not so much. Tastes like chewing on bitter orange peel. Weak wheat malt base, a bit watery. Below average wheat ale, hard to drink a whole glass.
