UPDATED: JUN 14, 2012 As one who grew up in the 312, back when the 312 was not just Chicago, I really enjoy this brew. A nice chrisp and easy drinking wheat ale. Especially great on a summer day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Beer Cellar October 2013. Hazy yellow colour with a modest amount of foam. Aroma is also modest with some grain coming through. The flavour is a bit above average and all round this is not a bad beer.

Bottle from Tesco. Poured a hazy yellow, with a thin halo of white head. Aroma of bread, wheat and very light lemon zest. Yeasty flavours, with some lemongrass and apricots. Finish was very light; some grass and grain.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a very light hazy straw yellow color with some fine yeast sediment in suspension. There is a little visible carbonation as well that helps support it nice foamy white head. The head hangs on well and makes a few cool lace rings near the top of the glass.
Smell: The aroma is light and has a simple clean bready/yeast character.
Taste/Palate: There is a light clean bready/biscuit like malt base with a very light hop bitterness. The finish is snappy and the light body and texture are refreshing.

16oz can displaying proud images of Chicago, but the fine print says it was brewed and canned in NY and Colorado, not sure how it was brewed and canned in both. Brewed in one, canned in the other? Can half filled and sent to the other plant? Either way dated mar 30 of this year. Consumed straight from the can, so canít comment on the appearance. Taste is crisp and has an almost juicy red apple taste. Sort of a creamy texture. Overall, not bad. I remember liking the stuff way back when it was tap only, stopped drinking it when I moved to IPAs, and really never looked back. Either way, this is a decent beer. Iíll drink it if the alternative is BMC.

Bottle sample at a tasting at work. Clear gold, white head. Floral, some citrus peel. Slightly tarty, fruity with delicate bitterness. Light body, plastic aftertaste. Mediocre.

Pours a golden yellow with thick white head. Aroma is light with yeast and grain. Taste is sweet, approachable, bready, grainy. Not bad, not good.

This is one of those retro ratings. This beer just was average to me, nothing that made me hat it or wAnt to buy it again.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bland and insipid, with a heavy dryness. Every swallow was a struggle.
