2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Clear, pale gold with no head. Corny, grainy aroma. Thin, pseudo-sweet, sour flavors kind of like unripe vegetables. The flavor escapes the tongue quickly and in this case, I guess it isn’t bad. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with a moderate off-white head that settles to a solid lid of creamy bubbles. Dry, floury wheat aromas. A touch of fruit, but not much there otherwise. Crisp and clean in flavors. That said, not many flavors. Light sweet wheat, hints of light fruit and a bit of herbal hops. Some light citrus in the finish and linger.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled as Crystal Wheat Ale. Slightly grainy, slightly wheaty aroma, dry. Golden pour with a white, lacing head and plenty of carbonation. Very crisp taste has faint wheat and phenol-tinged bread toward the back end, a slight rubber glove astringency with a poor malt base and peripheral lemon citrus. Light body but not watery. Boring and bland.

Semi murky pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of perfume-like sweet malt and a touch of yeast. Taste of sweet malts a little thin with a semi-dry finish. Pretty much a middle of the road beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from tap at Berkeley Pyramid ale house, labeled crystal wheat ale, as a clear pale blonde ale with a small white head with low carbonation. Aroma of banana, caramel and malt. Flavor is lightly sweet with banana, honey, and malt. The palate is sweet with a light tartness and a slight carbonation tingle. Nice overall, could use more carbonation to pump up the spice tingle on tongue, but I would drink this one again.
