2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample bottle from the distributor. Tasted 2/8/2008. 12oz bottle. Hazy and sedimented with a golden orange hue. Clinging layer of white head. Lemon lime citrus with an orange note. Light to medium bodied with good effervescence. Cereal flavors. Crisp wheat and good toast. Mildly grainy. American sticky wheaty yeast. Citrus and off-dry. Mildly coating. Crisp yet dulled. Mild hop finish. I’ll concur, not too bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz sample bottle from my distributor. Hell, this beats the crap out of the Miller "craft" offerings I sampled before this one. Needless to say expectations were low. Toasted malt, soap, bananas, and bread dough on the nose. Pours cloudy copper with some fine yeast particles floating. Cheers for not filtering this one. Nothing special but inoffensive on the tongue. Creamy wheat, light tropical fruit notes and soap. Decent texture. Good carbonation. Not too bad from AB.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Given to me by my AB rep in a sample bottle. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and a bit yeasty. Taste has a little ctrus to it and is somewhat in between an amber and a wheat. Has a soapy finish that sticks around a little bit.
