1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a sampler at the Indy location: RAM prides itself on not serving their Hefe with a lemon. The bad news is this is not a very good beer and it might have been better with a lemon. Pours a hazy gold color with a thin white head. Not much lacing at all. The aroma is not bad, with some clove, citrus and banana. The taste however was kind of disturbing. It takes like Mr. Bubble to me for some reason. It was hard to detect any wheat characteristics under the odd bath soap flavor. Same goes for the finish, it pretty much ruined the beer. I'd give it another shot but this was just not right.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Schaumburg, IL) Draft... DLD’08... Extremely murky yellow ale with a small, white, quickly dissipating head. The nose is a typical hefe unification of fruity banana, clove and Bazooka bubblegum with just a whisper of smoke. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Tangy, fruity and spicy. Fairly acidic with good bitterness. Finishes crisply.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Appearance is incredibly milky yellow. Looked way more hazy and milky than usual. Banana and cloves in the aroma. Flavor is mostly wheat, bananas, and cloves. Pretty good German Hefeweizen but the appearance was definitely off this time.

"another fairly solid but short of a standout brew from the RAM. a little more citrusy than standard for the german hefes. still nice. smooth, light spice and clove and a hint of banana."
