2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(12 oz bottle: Obtained 11-Nov-05 in trade with Ughsmash, thanks Jason!) The date notch on the label is between March and April, so Iíll go with April. Not too much going on here, which makes it a typical American Wheat beer. Light wheat flavor, slightly sweet, with a bit of mild citrus and very gentle bitterness. What little flavor there is disappears in a hurry. The nose is lightly grainy, but thatís about it. Light bodied, watery in the finish, pretty standard carbonation. Pale golden color and fully clear in appearance. Small, white head fully dissipates within a few minutes. While the overall flavor is inoffensive, I find the lack of any character, any flavor thatís even remotely interesting to be somewhat offensive. Just because itís a wheat beer doesnít mean it canít have flavor. I might just as well drink a glass of water and not waste precious calories.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is golden with little carbonation and little head. Aroma is lightly toasted wheat malt. Mouthfeel is smooth with light carbonation. Taste is very light with some of the toasted qualities of the aroma. There is a bit of graininess to the mouthfeel. An unobstrusive beer that would be fine during a meal or conversation, but not a whole lot going on with this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle-light yellow with a fizzy white head. grassy, husky, sweet pale malt/toasted grain notes-clean and crisp with no adjunct notes what so ever. flavors match the aroma-lots of husky malt notes. very crisp and easy drinking light "lager"? i would be good for a hot midwest day.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled notched on May. Poured a lighter and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Light aromas of wheat. Tastes of watered down wheat and light lemons. I really didnít get too much out of this one. I think Iíll cut my loses and take a few more sips on the way to pour this one down the drain.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wow, 30th to rate this, cool beans. Poured a pale straw color, mid white head. Nose was sweet, malty. Taste was actually pretty sweet. Finish dry. Not bad for a wheat. thanks for the trade heemer77.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Brennanís Country Store in Brookfield, WI. Very very light blonde body with thick bubbles sticking to the glass, very little head...light, sourdough-yeasty nose, touch of old lemon....body is fairly clean, refreshing, innocuous, sour at the front with honey sweetness entering at the middle, clean but boring sweet-sour finish...quite a decent, respectable, refreshing beer that just isnít interesting enough for me to remember or buy again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle via trade with heemer77 - Thanks Eric! - Pours golden with not much head at all. Aroma of wheat, a bit of yeast and not much else. Flavor about the same. Palate is light and watery with very little carbonation. Not much happening with this one..

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. the only non-BMC brew available at a bar in downtown Davenport. when I asked for a glass, the waitress brought me a plastic cup! as per the commercial description, this is a light summertime drink. a good thirst quencher, but I did not find much zest here. mediocre at best.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Had this on tap at the Dublin Underground in Iowa City. I would describe this beer as non-offensive. It really doesnít have a great deal of character. Straw colored. Smells and tastes like wheat, but no esters, and very little, if any hoppiness. This isnít their best beer. Typical boring American wheat.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Is there an aroma? Slight hint of malt, not much else - maybe a bit "bready." Appearance is amber, little to no head, nothing special here. The flavor is bland and malty with almost a sweet finish. Absolutely nothing left in the mouth after the swallow - it almost seems as if this beer was never there. Mouthfeel is mediocre - very thin, very non-existent. I donít like lagers and I donít like this beer. Boring!!!
