COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-bodied, full-flavored unfiltered beer brewed in the tradition of European wheat beers. Wheat malt, the finest barley and Roasted Caramel malts are combined with Pacific Northwest Cascade hops and a touch of pure honey for a wheat beer with a smooth, crisp finish.

Not much of an aroma to speak of. Pours golden yellow, cloudy, head thin. Flavour is bland. Lacks fruitiness and acids. Overall weak but unoffensive.

12oz bottle provided by R. McCarty. Malty with brief spice on first blush. Definite honey notes but hollow body and thin mouthfeel. Fades quickly.

Has a slight hint of the ’cheap beer’ stale-vomit aroma (hints of a light Keystone ICE aroma, the most god-awful beer smell known to man), appearance is a cloudy (good) brown (almost like poop water, not so good), palate-wise it has a nice refreshing neutral flavor. Not a terrible beer and certainly a step above the other big boys BUT I used to buy this stuff because it was a lot cheaper than the microbrews but now it is almost a buck a bottle and many micros can be had for only slightly more.

Notes from summer of ’04. Bottle: Straw colored hazy pour with a smaller white head. More grainy than wheat, no real hops taste. Very faint aroma of grain. Not real impressive.

Not what I expected being a Hef. Pours out a tan color clear no haze. Doesn’t taste like a traditional Hef. But not a bad flavored beer.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle. Poured very hazy yellow with thin lasting white head. Aroma of cloves and warm rubber. Thin flat wheaty flavour, with a couple spicy notes. Flat finish. Somewhat under commonplace.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Aroma was basic crop fields of wheat and corn. Light orange color body with white head. Flavor had a metalic feel to it. Some fruit flavor was trying to come into play but it was faint. I guess there is a reason this is sold for 92 cents a bottle.

Sleeper (91) - Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Thick head that doesn’t go away. Cloudy gold. It doesn’t smell like a hef, more like a Bud. The taste isn’t much better. It tastes sour with a little grainy finish. Pretty bad...

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Other than looking like a good hefe there is little good about this. Very wheaty, some Bud-like funk. Untasty. First had this beer in 2003 and scored it a 3.7 Musty orange-brown. Definetely the best wheat beer I’ve had. Doesn’t upset my stomach like other wheat beers. Would get again.
