On draught. Arrived to the table a mostly clear gold with a thin off-white head. Mild aroma of malt with some sweetness to it along with a hint of wheat grain. The flavor is malt, caramel, mild wheat grain, and some floral hops. Mild hops bitterness at the finish. Light-medium bodied. No problems.

From a can: pours the way it looks in that there picture. Aroma is light fruitiness and bread. Taste is bready. Lightly hopped and kind of fruity. Pretty meh.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a brassy golden color capped by a large rocky white head. Fragrant lemony wheat nose. Flavor upfront is fruity wheat malt. Has hints of citrus, banana and vanilla. Tart citrus malt in middle. Grassy hops in finish. Another ho-hum Summertime America Wheat. Nothing special.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a hazy copper color with a white head and lacing. The aroma is spice and fruit. The taste is lemon, wheat, banana, spice, and earthy. This was a decent and standard summer ale. There wasn’t anything really interesting about it. It was enjoyable enough though.

On Cask at Cask and Vine dry hopped with Citra. Slightly hazy deep yellow color with a decent off white head. Earthy spicy light tropical fruity with bits of citrus. Still quite buttery and that ruins it for me.

Butelka 12 uncji przywieziona z USA, dzięki Marek. Kolor jasnosłomkowy, piana biała dośc trwała. Aromat zbożowo-drożdżowy ze wskazaniem na pszenicę. Smak pszeniczny, słodkie lekkie piwo.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/10/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of bready malt, earthy hops, and moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and a slight bitter astringency lingering after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky/bready/chalky mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a solid English pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of pale male, earthy hops, and moderate yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

Draft at the reception area of the New River Bridge tour. Tasted mighty good after a few hours of being so high up.
