3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, orange-golden beer topped by a dense, white head of moderate size. Lots of bubblegum in the aroma, as well as banana, cloves and some dough. A touch of cloves as well. Semi-sweet, with bubblegum, banana, cloves and some honey notes in the flavor. Medium body, not as carbonated as I prefer the hefes.Bitterness, bubble gum and banana in the finish, some cloves as well. A decent one indeed, but that’s it. 130701

Bomber. Super cloudy yellow. Almost milky looking. Carbonated but Absolutely no head or even bubbles. Heavy on wheat aroma and flavors. Only subtle hints of esters. Drinkable buy hardly a shining example.

This hefeweizen is light and refreshing. Citrus notes in the middle replace the banana and bubble gum flavors so prevalent in the style. This pushes El Jefe solidly into the category of American wheat beer. It's probably my second favorite American wheat beer, behind Boulevard Wheat.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Wallingford Pizza House. Pours cloudy straw yellow. Aroma is light spice and citrus. Taste is tart wheat, crisp hops, light citrus, clove spice, and a clean dry finish. Light and delicious. Perfect with a lemon slice. Hale’s kinda flies under the radar in Seattle, but has the occasional gem like this.
