"another in the long line of pyramid wheat beers that start to blend together after a while. well balanced and fresh when had, but not a big loss that it’s no longer around."

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
~Grainy wheaty aroma, berry fruitiness like raspberry, bready.
~Pours a very clear golden color with small wispy white head.
~Minerally flavor, like sparkling mineral water, light grain and sweetness, light earthy spicy hop.
~medium light bodied, very high CO2, quick bitter dry finish.
~A bit bland in flavor. Easy to drink. Good subsitute for a Macro brewed Lager.

Clear golden our with some white froth. Light citrus aroma with a nice malt/grain flavor, a quick tinge on the back of the tongue and its goes down smooth. Pretty decent beer overall. Easy drinker

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some very slight citrus elements to it with a heck of a lot of wheat in there. Taste is slightly sweet and heavily grain oriented, but has just a hint of citrus to lighten it up. Still just a tad heavier than I would prefer. Meh.

Bottle. Cloudy amber, thin head. Pine hop aroma softened by some wheat notes. Very bitter and just a little sour in the finish.

Sorry to all had this years ago and am re rating. I thought it was light refreshing and kicked the hell out of our local wheat ales, grasshopper and velvet fog. Page 376 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 283 of his Classic 500 Brews to go.

They now have redone this beer with the new title of Pyramid Wheat. Not too bad but not too great. I like this style but to thick overall

Light wheat ale. Good balance of wheat malt and hopps in the nose and flavor. Full mouthfeel with a smooth finish.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Easy ale. Not too bad, but definaly not good. It's easy w/ little taste and little cloudiness. Dark (piss) yellow, thick head that became nothing but average and thin. Won't buy again!
