Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of stone fruitd, bread, toasted malts and a hoppy finish. The taste is toasted malts, dough, faint fruits and caramel, and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Refreshing.

I think the barley and oats overscore the wheat content but they seem to match the hops pretty well to create a drinkable summer session? Seems more like a pale ale with the hops with some wheat thrown in. Screw styles, this isn’t bad for a session! If you want a wheat, this isn’t a good rep.

jonas (5592) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2014
Tap at Birroteca, Baltimore. Light grassy fruity nose. Cloudy yellow, low white head. Bright citric entry, wellbalanced fresh grass bitterness. Sparkly medium body. Fresh, quite quaffable, kölsch-like

guzzler67 (1490) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Opaque gold appearance with an average size, fast fading white head and modest lacing. Earthy aroma of course grains and sweet malts. Soft, sweet, wheaty flavor, discreetly hopped, with a mellow, rounded aftertaste. Light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leading to a short lived finish. Spot on for the style.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Sampled from a growler: Pours a clear bright pale golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty and wheaty nose with a touch of floral hops. Starts with a nice light malty sweetness and smooth hop bitterness before a drier clean finish. A very drinkable and refreshing summer beer. Nothing exceptional, but good for what it is.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Small white head thats short lived, decent lacing. Murky blond color. Nose of grassy hops and faint grainy malts. Body is light with a good carbonation, faintly oily on the palate but still crisp. Dry malt flavors are a bit toasty, biscuity with the rye giving a pleasent bit of spiciness. Light grassy and citrusy hop notes work well with the light and spicey malts. Dry finish, thin as expected. Not alot going on but an easy summer quaffer. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head and medium lacing. Aroma of lemon peel, white pepper. Taste is subtle citrus, body is very light. Easy to drink, but lacks the character and complexity of others in the style.

Growler. Mellow, soft aroma, a little herbal dough. Buttery malt tones. Oily, off-white head. Soft herbal hop tones. Very sessionable, but a little odd, maybe some off flavors. Not bad, just sort of misses the mark. Herbal session beer.
