COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light styled wheat beer using 50% wheat to give it a slight fruity character. Brewed with an American ale yeast, giving it a clean palette and finish. Great Summer beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Tap at Media in July 2008 as Amarillo Wheat: Pours a transparent bright golden with well-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of mild pale toasty wheat and some fresh resiny hops. Body starts about average with a light effervescence and subtle sweetness with a decent balance of slightly grassy piny hops. Pretty smooth and drinkable, but could be a little more assertive.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Poured a lightly hazy, dark golden color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, toffee malts, grains, and a bit of citrus. Taste of more toffee, wheaty, husky grains, with some dough, and a light bitterness in the finish.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Draft. Pours hazy orangy coppery, with nose of wheaty malt, lemongrassy hops. Tastes malty, wheaty, with orange zest, hops, and some floral notes. Smooth on the palate.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Draft at Iron Hill Media June 2008, labeled "Amarillo Wheat". Pours golden with an orange tint, capped with a thick off-white head. Aroma of earthy hops, with some wheat in the background. Hops dominate the palate, but there is some citrus, wheat and yeast in the background to provide balance. The hops worked well with this beer.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Draft @ Media location, called "Amarillo Wheat." Pours a clear, pale golden-orange color; thin white head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Husky, basic wheat and chewy orange-tinged Amarillo goodness; basic wheat core with orangey hops; simple, pleasant. Average carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: lots of husky, mildly astringent wheat and just a touch of chewy, orange hoppiness; very husky, with some light cereal. Medium finish: lots of husky wheat and light orange and mineral hop bitterness; very toasty.

On tap at the North Wales location. Poured a deeper and cloudy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of cereal, wheaties, and light citrus (or was that the lemon I had to take out). Tastes of cereal, wheaties, citrus, and grains.

TheEpeeist (3400) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2008
On tap in Media, al fresco. Clear straw with a thin white haze. Light and sort of fizzy. Taste and nose clean wheat and lemon-lime. Some perfume but oddly no banana. Different, refreshing but overall a little thin. A more orangy hop to contrast the wheat might have worked better.
