3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Cloudy gold into an English Pint. Not much head with no lace. Real odd nose, smells of leather. Maybe plastic?? Flavor is balanced nicely with sweet grassy malt, lemon citrus and a hint of a floral hop. The malt is bread like. When I was drinking this, it felt much like an APA. If this is truly brewed in the Lagering style, then this is a nice one. Way above any other lager I’ve ever drank.

I put this in an original sam adams glass. It has a very light golden tan color. Light head with a sweet yeasty a slightly malty and citrusy smell. The taste immediate was lightly citrusy sweet, malty, yeasty, and cereal. Not sour or tangy just right. A little bit like a blue moon not as citrusy. Overall a pretty good and light. It would be a great spring or summer everyday beer.

This beer was decent but not great in just about every way. For some reason, it actually reminds me quite a bit of the standard Sam Adams.

One of the better Samuel Adams offerings. Served in a pint glass, this unfiltered ale gives off a cloudy golden body with a fizzy white head. This brew has some juicy, but unbitter hop notes with subtle sweetness from the malts. Notes of sweet Easter bread.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft to 8oz glass. Looked a hazy yellow with sparse head. Smelled a little skunky, but the flavor was alright for what seemed to be a heffe. Malt and spice herb veggie notes. Pretty light. Wish I just got a yuengling lager.

Was blown away by the drinkability on this one and balance. WAY Better than nobil pils imo. I heard they are running this vs noble pils this year which is fine by me. While i didnt find noble pils offensive I felt it was alittle middle of the road and not too exciting while still being a good beer. This is something else all together. crisp, clean, just the right amount of hops & a touch of honey. Not overdone on the unfiltered wheat & the best part is the citrus honey finish! yum

Pours slightly hazy with white head. Light aroma of grain not much on the hops. Fairly clean but a bit of hop presence makes it enjoyable. But very subtle. I know that is what they were attempting so good for them. I am sure my wife will really like it.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2012 Bottle via stateline. Pours a bright orange color, with a yellow tint. Good head on it with a good lacing left on the glass. Aroma of some fruity notes, spices (not spicey), floral, lemony hops. Taste is average, nice little session beer. Noble hops, corn, sweet malt. Medium/light body. Overall, ehhh.... enjoy their noble pils much better but this is a pretty good lager
