hopscotch (8901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #900... Sparkling clear, deep golden lager. Very small, creamy, white head. Lightly floral with butterscotch notes in the nose. Flavorwise, canned-corn and butterscotch notes up front. Astringent and well-balanced on the backside. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Clear bright golden pour has a thin, wispy white head. Faint aroma of malted wheat and grain, but almost nonexistant. Body starts with a finely dissolved carbonation and mild sweetness with a touch of light fruity notes and citrusy hops. Finishes semi-dry and mildly bitter with some earthy citrus notes. Needs more balance.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 25, 2007
Tap @ Arundel Mills: Poured a clear golden color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was malty with some earthy hops and a light wheatyness. Malty flavor with the wheat character appearing on the light side. Tasty though. Hint of citrus with a mild bitterness at the end. Refreshing (after driving 10 hours to get there). Semi-dry finish with a light to medium body.

Growler, courtesy of my amigo Russ. Thanks, dude! Pours a brilliantly clear, honey-orange color; white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Sugar and floral notes in the aroma. Medium, sugary mouthfeel: citrus hops and minerals. Light citrus and sugar finish. Very drinkable.

Draft from the brewpub. Luckily the beers were not a reflection of the service from this joint. Clear and bright gold. Layered white head. Crisp bright flavor. Grainy and bready. Orange citrus fruit. Lively with a little of that bubblegum yesty sweetness. Nice example.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 Draft at Arundel Mills at the X-mas in July party.Pours hazy golden with a white head. Faint aroma of yeast, lemon, and honey. Light bodied, with a mouth feel that is is soft and slightly yeasty. Flavor of pale wheat malts and yeast, countered by subtle hops and and spice. Not much residual sweetness. Clean and refreshing summer beer finish. This is quite an interesting take on the style, as this has some hefe AND american wheat like and nice subtleties. This is not a palate killer, but still enjoyable and under rated in my opinion.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Once a seasonal, now a staple on tap by popular demand. This is a new version with an all-american hop bill that’s minus the honey. Sparkling gold, creamy white head. Nose held soft notes of grassy florals, toasted grains, and fresh bread dough. Just a hint of citrus plays out upon further warming. Flavor was very well balanced and clean with touches of florals, grass, and grainy yeastiness. Light bodied, soft carbonation, light breadsy finish. As I am not a fan of the American Wheat,but this brew one is very well done. Perfect for consuming in mass quanity on a hot summer day...
