1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Pours a pale golden color with a light head. Nose is faintly wheat and mustly florals, lightly fruity. Tastes like apple cider and artificial malt flavors… syrupy. Oddly sweet and musty. Like a stale apple cider was blended with a mild ale. Weak. Not refreshing at all.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Pours a golden color with white head. Malty, slight soapy aromas. Malty, floral, light citrus, veggie flavors. Ugh.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear orange pour light head. Smells too much of malt syrup and cough drops. Tastes the same, sticky palate. Malta goya time. Worse than most pale lagers because it is less refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured slightly-hazy medium golden with a short, stark white head. The aroma picked up sweet lemon and orange rind with a bit of earthy wheat and honey. The flavor opened with tart citrus and wheat, with honey and biscuity notes behind.. tacky and kind of unpleasant bitterness on the finish. Light-bodied with an OK overall feel on the palate.. quite sweet.. drinkable stuff.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear light golden color with big fluffy white head and clumps of lacing. Smells of grains and lemon. Aroma is similar, with a bit of grassand perhaps watermelon. Body is light to thin with just enough carbonation to keep this from being flat. Taste is on the sweet side with a slightly bitter finish. OK for mowing the lawn or fishing in summer, but other than the label, quite boring.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear. Some wheat sweetness, but it is light and there is very little flavor or aroma at all. No perceivable hop flavor or aroma. Not very good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle pours clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma is cider like with wheat and slight spice. Taste is a sweet apple caramel malt with slight wheat and bitter spice. Almost like they replaced the hops with wheat from the IPA, very similar beers, not in a good way.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2012 Not as good as their IPA. The beer has a cloudy appearance when poored and gives it an unappelling look. There is not a lot of flavor in this beer. The after tast leaves me feeling like I drank flavored water. My suggestion - order Brainerd Lakes IPA.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is rather weak and is mostly wheat. Flavor is wheat and light notes of citrus, cloves, and fruit. Light bodied with heavy carbonation. Nice label.

Great simple ale. Not much wheat but it drinks smooth and has a mild flavor
