very light lager (by my standards). relatively little hopping, bit of malt flavor. decent if your looking for something lighter.

This is traditional Weinhards: plain, boring, and rather cheap. Really not bad for an american lager, and not the worst Weinhards (if you want a beer that will not only make you cringe but will give you a sugar high as well try the blackberry wheat). Straight up ordinary.

Med gold color, medium head. A medium bodied lager. Mild malts and hops, yet very flavorful. Very smooth taste. Very refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, nearly neutral. Nice beer.

not really a fan. can’t put my finger on it, but it certainly doesn’t do it for me.

Very clean...attractive clear appearance with moderate white head. Aroma is on the hoppy side, but light. Malt presence is almost undetectble but hops come through sharply yet are not overpowering...still, not much balance here. This is, all in all, a refreshing drink one can enjoy on a hot day or as a prelude to heartier faire.

Not too much going on here. It has a remarkable lack of flavor. It’s not bad, especially for the price, but there are much better beers out there.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 This stuff is good and here’s why. Tastes pretty good, easy to drink. BUT- it is very inexpensive in the stores. I can name a billion better beers, but dollar for dollar this beer comes through. In comparison with other Weinhards beers, I would say it is about as good as the Blackberry Wheat or the Pale Ale.
ReRate: What is the point of this beer? It’s a half-assed wheat ale of some sort, with a low quality metallic taste to boot.

Hmm... Interesting brew. Tastes just about like any other blonde but not as fruity. I liked it and would do it again.

Fairly average in all regards. Nothing special here but certainly not bad either. I suppose it would be fairly easy to down quite a few of these on a hot day.
