2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow body with a very fizzy white head that vanished quickly. The nose is grassy wheat with a bit of cooked veggies and pale malt. The flavor is very thin and watery with just a light wheat base and a slight lemony accent. A touch of banana esters come out on the lingering finish. The body is thin and watery with very prickly fizzy carbonation. Devoid of character in almost every aspect.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured clear bright golden with lots of rising carbonation and a short-lived cap of white. The aroma picked up dry pale malts and vegetal notes upfront with some wheat that didn’t really do anything for it. The flavor had the same pale malts along with honey at the core.. wheat gave a subtle tartness.. some vegetal notes and cardboard joined honey on the finish.. nothing really good here. Lighter-bodied and dry on the palate with some tacky spots.. meh.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee - No head to speak of. Smells like fresh rain on a dirty rock. Crispy, sharp taste. The bottle says it is actually a wheat lager, not an ale.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a dismal sudsy head like that of a soda. Strong wheaty aroma, smells like old bread. Flavor is actually pretty decent, sweet wheat, very smooth and glassy. The lagering is very nice. A little bit sour and a good amount of honey. This is a great example of a wheat, it actually features the wheat flavor rather than relying on spices to carry it. Pleasant body with smooth carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago. Clear, light yellow with fizzy white head. Sweet bread malt and a little yeast. Flavor is much the same with some citrus and graininess. Thin, watery and fizzy body. Easy drinking but not anything exciting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden and effervescent with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of bready pale malt, clean lager yeast. Taste is lightly grainy, notes of wheat, bready, toasted malt. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. A drinkable and malt-centric wheat lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Small bubbly head with a nice looking light amber beer. Lite yeast smell but nothing else. I disagree with ketchepillar, I dont think its a thin palate as much as thin on flavor. Its like carbonated water with just enough sugar in it to not be bitter. If you serve with a slice of lemon as suggested you would taste only lemon. I like these guys and there beer but this one didnt make the mark. Sorry guys, I hate to down on my home state beers.
