2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy-clear yellow with lively carbonation. Hoppy and grassy on the nose. Tastes of flat grass with faint lemon and green vegetables thrown in a blender and pureed. Watery mouthfeel, but not too watery. Average at best.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured cloudy straw color. Some foam that hung around for about 5 minutes. Aroma is distant citrus, bit of malt. The taste is muted wheat and bubbles. Surprised at the carbonation. Nothing really stands out in this one, and certainly is not a big wheat, but it is quite drinakable.

First time Iíve been disappointed with a GI product. Poured a cloudy blonde with a healthy head. The aroma was foul, but there wasnít much of it so Iíll give them some points there. Flavor was sweet with bananas and a little malt. Just not much there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy yellow, topped by a fizzy quarter inch of nearly white foam. Good carbonation is evident. No head retention, no lacing. Slight dry wheat aroma.
Slight wheat flavor - dry but not really tangy. More of a cereal grain than anything else. Light body. Generic hops for balance - no character. You know - thatís it - the lack of character in this beer. It is decent, it is well made, but it does nothing for me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy pale yellow body, like a lemonade but with straw tones, thin off-white head. Earthy, biscuity aroma. Light, tart, bready body, grassy. Tastes a bit stale despite the 10 April 2007 drink by date, although, come to think of it, that same taste characterizes their Summer Ale. Rather dull and boring, and Iím not a big fan of the palate, either. Pass.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From my tasting notes at an "earlier" date. On tap @ Old Chicago. Poured a slightly hazy straw golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of some cardboard/paper, light lemons, tinge of banana. Flavor is the same with a lot of citrus and tang coming through. Watery body and highly carbonated. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Faint aroma, small disappearing head, and little carbonation. Bright golden color. Last few drops added cloudiness that slowly sank to the bottom of glass. Okay flavor, somewhat citrus- but not much to it.

312 is a typical American Wheat beer. It has a nice crisp taste that I enjoy on a hot summer day. A little bit of citrus and banana taste, but not something that you would notice over the wheat unless you drank a lot of it and paid attention.
If I want a 12 pack of beer that is pretty good and not too pricey, Iíll pick up 312. Aside from that, itís probably not something that Iíd casually drink.
