2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
An OK golden ale - nondescript. Doesnít make itself known as a wheat beer - very light esters and a bit of sweetness, but no strong character. Drinkable, but forgettable.

Come on, this was not cloudy, nor did I detect Cascade hops. I must have had a different 312.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours bright golden with a 2-inch white head that settles slowly. The ale has a very slight haze and the haze aside, looks like a pilsner. The lacing is very modest. Hints of hops in the nose. Light on the palate. Light body. An unexpected, and to me undesirable after-taste. The unpleasant, but yet unidentified aftertaste lingers. Fortunately, the after taste is light as well. Carbonation is moderate. The wheat characteristics are barely perceptible. This is a light ale and may appeal to many for that reason. I find it a decent summer, quaffing beer, but wish it had more to offer than the pervasive lightness (carbonation, nose, body, and flavor).

12oz bottle today at Brickskellar, one of the few beers I knew I hadnít had. Pours yellow with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet, wheaty, and light. Taste was sweet, light and just ok.

Bottle. Straw color, very nice lacing. Fairly straightforward American wheat with some tanginess to it, low hops ( I didnít notice the Cascades), light body. Refreshing. Recommended if you like the style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Very pale gold, greenish tinge, thin white head. Not a huge aroma, touch of soap on the hop, but really refreshing beer. Bit dullish, little bit of lemon edge to it, more an American wheat than a wit. Not very exciting but very refreshing.

Pours a cloudy golden color. Not quite as sour or as fragrant as most wheat beers Iíve tried. Itís a bit more restrained. Good accompaniment to food.
