COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napa Smith Wheat beer has a light and clean taste that is characteristic of this type of style. We have added special ingredients to accentuate the aromas beyond the hops and malt to insure a spicy, floral aroma with a light crisp finish. Serve this with a grilled piece of fresh fish or pork chops.

like some of the other napa smith beers ive had, this one is thin, bland and fairly one dimensional. its not bad, just not worth buying again.

Wheat beer. Smells Like it. Taste like it. Wheat brew. Not my style. Good luck.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2012
bottle. Pours a clear gold with white fizzy head. Aroma has hints of citrus and faint grainy wheat, malt. Flavor is is much the same, very light. Watery mouthfeel with fizzy carb, almost seems to have hints of ginger....not a fan but wouldnt turn it down...very simple wheat brew.

obguthr (3827) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Lemon nose with black pepper hints, not strong. Clear amber, thin head. Lemon flavor. Astringent, slightly vegetal, fizzy. Weak, no character. Typical low end american wheat.

thegreenrooster (3209) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Pour is a hazy blonde with a large with head. Aroma is a nice bready/wheat. Flavor is where this one loses it. Some dull malts with a little lemon zest. Finish is watery and thin. Boring old wheat ale.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is honey and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and citrus. Easy to drink, a decent wheat ale from Napa Smith.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/27/11, Rating # 1985, a year that always makes me think of Georgetown-Villanova

Aroma: The nose is fairly weak, with some subtle notes of lemon, grain, and wheat
Appearance: This one pours a mostly clear orange color with a fizzy white head and no lace
Flavor: Tastes medium sweet, citrus and wheat flavors, some graininess, and minimal hop presence
Palate: The body is light, and it is watery and fairly dull on the mouth, and it has an overly fizzy carbonation
Overall Impression: I wasn’t too impressed here. This is not a very good example of the style. This was a fairly poor wheat beer with an unexciting flavor, minimal depth, and too much carbonation. That’s pretty much the gist here.

Bottle, this ale had a clear pale yellow pour and made a one finger or more white creamy head, effervescence was medium or less, left some fingers and partials rings on the sides of the glass, there was a thin film on the bottom of the bottle, the aromas were wheat grain with light fruit citrus that had hints of lemon with faint fruit and bread sweetness in the background, the flavors were grainy wheat, a little lemon citrus, and light bread, the mouth feel was a little less than medium with medium carbonation, a nice wheat beer, it was better than what I expecting.
