Pale golden creamy white head. Sweet aroma and flavor from the hops very light bodied with a hint of lingering bitterness. A nice take on the light lager syle.

Draft at Downtown Chattanooga location:
At least today this was far superior to the pils unless they called them by the wrong name. One of the few of the style I have ever had with actual flavor. No flaws, bready, and a nice floral hop finish.
The biggest surprise of the the day for me.

On tap at the Hamilton Place location. The body was deep yellow with a white head. The aroma was meaty with some grass notes. There was also some bread. The taste was light bread crust with some beets. Good for the style.

Draft. Pours light gold with a white head. Hop and malt aroma and flavor. Light bodied with a clean finish. I would drink this over a macro anytime.

On tap at Rock Bottom Charlotte. Typically crappy light beer, with nothing really redeeming about it at all.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Big River – Chattanooga. Poured clear bright golden with a light dusting of white head. The aroma was light and sweet with bready and honey notes.. just a little dusty floral as an accent. The flavor wasn’t so hot.. cardboard joined honey and pale malt sweetness at the core.. weak and watery with not much going on. Light-bodied with too much carbonation and a dry finish. Drinkable, but meh.

Wildly popular but not a great Big River beer. I am surprised it has rated so low despite it’s popularity but that makes me think that us at ratebeer know wheat we’re talking about and have some consensus! In the Sam Adams style but lighter on the malt appealing to the masses.
