3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle -
Found this at my local BevMo. Zero fanfare about this beer, so I figured..what the heck. Actually a nice, lawnmower beer that hit the spot this July 4th weekend. A clean aroma, light doughy-notes. An aggressive hop profile for a wheat beer. In fact, I got nearly no wheat notes, but did get some bran-cereal like flavors under the hops. Loved the hops, but pretty one-dimensional. Very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at the Chico brewpub Aug 2013 - Pours clear gold with a lingering off-white head. It has a mild aroma of citrus and wheat. The light flavor is refreshing with mild hops bitterness. It’s light bodied and really good, especially for a style that’s not generally my favorite.

Similar to a macro lager with wheat. Straw color, soapy head. Very light in flavor, with the toasty wheat coming through. Somewhat bitter finish. Maybe a hint of banana.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled around 01DEC11
A: pours a brilliant straw ale with a finger of fine, white foam. This falls to a sheet of the same leaving soapy lace.
S: Wheat, grain, dust, some earthy crispness. It seems to have a decent pilsner tone with subdued earthen hops.
T: Some sweet cereal flavors with a bit of crispy pizzazz that provides a slight peppery flavor. I can dig.
M: thin with hi carb and a dry finish.
O: Really a drinkable beer. I wouldn’t got too far outta my way to drink it, but if it were 100F outside, I’d be happy to split a pitcher.

Tap @ Black Bottle. Called Ale 20. Pours a clear golden yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly floral, a bit grainy, light lemon, slightly spicy aroma. Clean, light flavor with some hay and grainy notes. Not super exciting but easy to drink. Probably a good session ale.
