Undermanned and undergunned. Everything, aroma, color, tatse seemed watered down. Its as if you mixed one pale ale with one cerveza. Slight floral hop taste, light body, no finish, best thing i can say it was cold and its 102 and humid here in Chicago.

weihenweizen (1735) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Refrigerated bottle from JoePessie, poured into a shaker. Pours hazy light orange with medium white head that dissapates fairly quickly. Good small bubble lacing, medium/thin body, light/medium carbonation, and nice citrus aroma. Tastes is citrus malt, estery bread, and finishes crisp hops. Refreshing.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Clear and light copper hued. Lots of carbonation to be seen but little head. Citrus and floral hops with light caramel in the aroma. Grain is the first thing tasted but it is a light flavor. Floral notes again with some zesty bitterness. Caramel is again light. Sessionable but not exciting.

JoePeesie (860) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Pours a clean crisp golden brown with white head. Nose and taste are sweet and malty. Not very exciting, but a decent drinker none the less.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Clear orange coloured body with a slightly hazy copper hue and a thinnish two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of light hops, citrus, grapefruit and a touch of malt. Light-bodied; Strong metallic taste at first with a decent amount of light and stale hops, some minor malts and not much else in complexity. Aftertaste is pretty subtle with only a few of the light hops coming through and perhaps a touch of the citrus. Overall, not such a good beer and not showing much, but not awful. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trader Joe’s in Chicago (Ontario Street) on 03-December-2011 for US$1.50 sampled at home in Washington on 20-February-2012.

Lemke10 (793) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2012
I bought this as part of an M&M 6pk from Everett’s in South Beloit, IL for $9.99 in Summer 2011. Pours a beautiful copper orange color with a pillow head of carbonation and leaves some very nice lacing around the glass. Scent is of bitter hops is very evident with some lesser hints of wheat and citrus. The taste is only semi-bitter. I was expecting a huge burst of bitter hop flavors but instead had a drastic drop-off that finished more like a light beer. Is refreshing and crisp but pretty much a run of the mill basic APA. If your not one for bitter beers, or want to try a weak bitter beer, this is a good starting point.

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2011
12oz bottle 12/10/11 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours an orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops, orange, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops and citrus on the back end. This medium bodied brew is not bad. Was expecting worse.

wlajwl (3878) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2011
A slightly strange mix of hops and bread in the aroma. The flavor is very grainy with a moderate hop bite to it. Much more malty than expected, it wasn’t bad but not nearly as hoppy as APAs usually are.

Bottled. Poured clear lighter orange with a short, dense, sticky white head. The aroma picked up deeper honey and pale malts topped by oranges and dry floral notes.. soft overall and fairly malt-forward.. not a whole lot to it, but no complaints. The flavor found honey, pale malts, and light crusty bread maltage at the core.. dry and spicy on the edges, showing orange zest and peppery rye.. dry finish with residual bitterness.. again OK. Light-bodied and dry on the palate with prickly carbonation.. slick and oily at other times.. not great transitions.. overall drinkable.
