3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Hazy, pale gold with a small, foamy, white head.
Aroma: Light nose with hints of cereal and a touch of citrus.
Flavor: Cereal dominates on the malt side, but there is a good balancing bitterness with citrus and floral notes.
Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish.
Overall: It doesn’t quite have that crisp bite I was hoping for, but it is still a pretty good beer and not a bad interpretation of the style.

Tap @ OBX - Gold, thin white creamy head. Soft citrusy wheat and earth aromas. Light wheat bread and earth balance on hints of citric hops. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A well done rendition that’s quite the thirst quencher...
