COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pachyderm Pale Wheat is an American pale wheat.The aroma is clean and hoppy with hints of citrus.The taste is pleasantly hoppy and smooth. We all know that elephants never forget. So when the Birmingham Zoo acquired six new baby elephants (part of the Pachyderm mammal family) we knew that our beloved Miss Fancy would have wanted us to help take care of them. So each and every time you enjoy a pint of our delicious Pachyderm Pale Wheat, we’ll donate 3% of the profits to help the Birmingham Zoo care for their elephant herd. Trunks Up to that!

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Can courtesy of my friend Noel. Murky gold pour with a short white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy with soft malt and wheat notes. Taste is wheat, sweet malt, citrus fruit and floral hops. Body is medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more floral hops, citrus fruit, toasted malt, grains and wheat notes.

Aroma is strong wheat and lemon. Look is good. amber with white head. Taste is smooth. Not a lot a wheat but pale indeed. Palate is smooth. Lemony. Corriander. What you have here is a solid wheat pale ale. An easy drinking tastey smooth beer. For what it is: great beer.

Really amazingly bad…like how did it leave the brewery. Thanks drowland for the share…I guess. Hazy gold. Aroma was floral hoppy, not too bad. But the taste was horrible. Hose water with indistinct minerally taste. Gross.

drowland (7055) - Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
1/28/15. 12oz can from Smokin Joes (or something like that) in Jacksonville, AL. Hazy golden orange pour with a big khaki head that sticks and laces like crazy - looks good. Decent aroma, a citrus zest pop, some soft wheat and maltiness, but there’s an undeniable off-ness... tinny water, worty aromas. Oh man, the flavor is borderline disgusting. Perhaps this is an old can, but no dating that I can find. A vague maltiness, earthy, huge off worty flavor, like a gross European lager, lingers a bit tart like lemon peel followed by pennies and that gross worty aspect. Really mad I have 5 more of these.

Aggiebob (333) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Can: Hasy orange ale with a small white head of foam. The aroma is dough/wheet and fruit. Moderate hop taste with a little bitterness.

Travlr (16417) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Draft. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of raw bread dough, ripe fruit. Taste starts sweet and malty, then fruit, then bready. Interesting.

Can. Pours a pale yellow color with white head. Grainy, slight grassy, slight wheat aromas. Herbal, earthy, grassy flavors. Not bad.
