On tap at The Federal, Durham, a while back. A slightly better than average wheat to me. Thin golden brew on some levels, it’s got a zest to it courtesy primarily of the noble hops (which could stand to be bumped up a bit in my estimation). Mostly a by-the-numbers wheat but with enough distinctiveness to make it a worthy choice when the heat’s dialed up.

Tap at the brew pub. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty, grainy, a bit fuity and some hay. Flavor is crispy and. Lear, acidy, grainy, light fruity ess, a bit soapy and bitter. Finishes shortlived bitter.

Very thin appearance and almost no aroma. Simple but satisfying taste and comfortable mouthfeel. Easy drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally reviewed: 10/16/08. Grabbed a pint of this while I was taking a tour of the fine brewery. This brew came out a deep straw gold with minimal head, no lacing. Smelled of sweet malt and a touch of the floral hops. Pretty average scent. Taste was very well balanced, not bitter, not sweet. I’m getting some grainy/corn flavors, but also some malt. This beer is not that bad. Smooth and creamy this one is. This beer is plenty quaffable. It’s not the best beer in the world, or the brewery for that matter, but it is head and shoulders above the competition on like-style brews.

Not bad for a light beer. Some flavor... waitress compared it to a bud light, but it was alot better than that. Low Alcohol not bad if you want several.

From sampler flight at Foothills. Slightly cloudy. Bit watery and thin. Perhaps a beer to appeal to the masses but Foothills makes much better beer than this.

A golden ale with a thin white head, lacing. In aroma, a smooth biscuitty malt with light hopping. In mouth, a smooth caramel malt with smooth German hops, quite nice. On tap at the brewpub, August 13, 2011.
