Being located in the biggest wheat producing state in the nation, a refreshing wheat beer is a must-brew. The Wheat State Golden is usually our lightest beer. It is fashioned after the Kölsch beers made around Cologne. It is traditionally brewed in the Alt Style like our Ad Astra Ale and has about 25% wheat malt. There is just a touch of caramel malt to add the golden color, and the rest is pale malt. The Golden is lightly hopped with Yakima Perle for bittering, and Hallertau Hersbrucker hops for aroma.

Light, easy drinking beer dominated by lemon and grain flavor. This would be great for someone just getting into craft beer.

12oz bottle, purchased from Lukas Liquor in Missouri during my RBSG stay. Notches on the label indicate that this is best by the fifth week of August. Mostly clear golden color, with a slight orange hue. Thin off-white head. Decent loose bits of lace. Fades to minimal eventually. Medium body. Kind of crisp, light soft, lightly abrupt lighter carbonation. Kind of slick finish. Some orange citrus lightly spicy flavors, wheaty bready malt. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Kind of a light funky cheapish lagery taste. OK kolsch.

Light with a lemony sweetness. Slick body with a sharp hop aftertaste. One of my least favorite bottles from Free State.

Clear, golden pour with a thin, white head. It has an earthy hop aroma and light, crisp body with average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a quick, clean finish.

Bottle, thanks Russ! Wheat malt aroma followed by notes of caramel and hops. Pours golden colored with a bit of cloudiness and a light, white head. Wheat flavors with a touch of caramel to start followed by a smooth, dry finish with a bit of hops. Good, refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good lawn mower beer but not much to it. Clean but not much flavor. Had in Lawrence.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and grass. The flavor has some strong wheat notes as well as some grass and lemon. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 I enjoyed this beer. I was on the hunt for one from my home state and was not disappointed. Has slight fruity taste. Wheat flavor is spot on. It?s a crisp brew on hot days in kansas.
