2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a little hazy with a nice enough head and just a little lace. Served with a orange wedge (that looked like a lemon wedge) The aroma is very faint with just a little light fruitiness. The flavor is a lot of that odd minerally astringent character that plagued the pilsner, but to a lesser degree here. There is a mild fruit character and a nice crispness to this one. This would be particularly refreshing if it weren’t for the off flavors.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft… Lightly hazed yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is almost totally nondescript - I did pick up on a little graininess. Light-bodied and watery with expired carbonation. The flavor is pretty much nondescript as well – although refreshing. Short, fairly crisp finish. Went well with my “mixed greens” salad. Although Charlie’s idea of “mixed greens” is two different shades of green – light green iceberg lettuce and dark green cucumbers.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. I’m a hop guy, i’m not a wheat drinker but this beer is alright. I get more hop than wheat. So it goes down easy without a wheat finish. Nothing to write home about, but I’m not mad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a hazy pale yellow color with a thin white head that burns away pretty fast. Spotty lacing on the glass. Vinous aroma with touches of wheat. Light body with flavors of Riesling and wheat, plus some other fruits. The finish is short and fruity, leaving the wine character behind. Not very enjoyable overall.
