2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Purchased from the Westwood Krogers on Ferguson Road in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one poured out a bronze hued brew with a faint grassy aroma and small, rapidly fading white head. Tastewise, this one has a weak, grainy flavor with a watery balance. This is NOT a good beer.

Can. Pours a hazy yellow with a high, fluffy, lacy, fine-grained white head. Nose is orange, medicinal, and stale spice cabinet. Sweet -- I mean, REALLY sweet -- with a flat, hollow, and empty middle of the palate. No real grain or depth to speak of, just that same ephemeral sweetness; it’s like cheap candy. Finish is non-existent. If this is a dirty blonde, then given its lack of substance it must be Paris Hilton.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bland and unremarkable. Some stale cardboardy wheat aromas, light citrus, and a lot of water. Tried with Jess, Mark, and Matt at the DC brewfest in 2014.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can to pint. Looks subpar; a hazy pineapple with some kind of dark floaties in it. Foamy white head. Smells of oranges, coriander, and wheat. Tastes like it smells, but more coriander. Average (at best) on the palate. Not awful, but not good either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
