3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
Poured a really light yellow color with a bit of a white head and some clearly visible carbonation. The nose is some light citrus along with quite a bit of grain. The taste is grainy and has some light lemon notes. Light and crisp, this was a pretty good summer brew.
Serving type: on-tap

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Wow, this beer really isn’t good. Poured a light straw with a tiny head that disappeared so quickly I was lucky to see it at all. I’ve seen a better looking glassful of budweiser. Aroma is barely present, a little fruity. On the palate this was really thin a little fizzy, with really no discernable flavors. It was as if they took a decent wheat beer and filtered out all the flavor when they took out the yeast. I personally like something a little more substantial with wheat beers. Not recommended.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw color with a moderate, dense soft peak head. LIght sweet wheat aromas with only a hint of citrus peel in the background. Fairly full in feel, but gets watery in the end. Light malt and wheat mingle with a mild apple tartness. Quenching and light. This would be easy to drink on a hot summer night. Overall not a bad american wheat, even-though I still do not really understand the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 I am a wheat fan but only moderately fond of this brewer - and tend to be rather leery of American Wheat as a style. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale yellow color with only a trace of a white head that fades instantly. The aroma is faint malts and faint hops. The flavor is light malts and a hint of banana. A rather poor wheat.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Aroma bread, lemon, honey, summery yeast. Bright yellow pour with a good deal of carbonation and a creamy, rich, noisy white head. Taste is malt, grainy with a good bit of honey, quaffable lightish body upset by the slight huskish grainy feel. Light but lasting bitterness adds a nice tone. Dry and blasé – thus perfect for summer?

Man, this beer smells, and even, initially, tastes like budweiser. Bland to the extreme, but leaves a decent, light finish. I guess, if I weren’t into good beer, this would be great. Magic Hat really disappoints me with this one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden colour with orange highlights and a dense white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with sweet scents and even a bit of malt...nothing wrong with the aroma. Light to medium-bodied; Sweet flavour with some grassy hop characteristics and a light malt finish. Mild aftertaste, only a bit of the sweetness shows through and leaves the mouthful fairly dry. Overall, one of my favourite Magic Hat beers, I don't like most of their other beers, so this was a welcome change. To comment on the style, if this wasn't classified as a Wheat, I would have no idea...this isn't even close to a normal Wheat style. This particular beer was brewed in November 2002. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

Draft. Pretty decent beer. Aroma is sweet, and flavor is a little fruity. The only downside was that it felt a little watery.

Quite wheaty in the aroma. Not a fan of this. Just has those gross malty wheay characters of wheat beers that are not good.
