COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pour 422 Pale Wheat Ale into a pint glass, give it a long whiff and you’ll realize that this isn’t your average pale golden wheat. Preserved in its unfiltered state, 422 is a fantastic session ale in which flavors of wheat, barley and hops commingle to a refreshing and zesty conclusion. Hints of orange and sweet malts waft to the fore as a touch of bitterness contributes to a smooth finish. 422 is brewed as a tribute to preserving our precious planet and it’s environment. It is responsibly packaged with over 80% recycled consumer products and is completely recyclable. Enjoy 422 all year as to take one stride closer to a eco-friendly life.

Bought a case of this at the brewery after seeing a sign saying it was the last batch. I’m assuming they are retiring this brew. It’s a shame to because it’s a decent normal drinking beer. Good with food and relaxation, not boozy. You’ll get a little citrus and sweetness. Very smooth going down without any bitter and you can drink a few and still feel fine.

hotstuff (4230) - Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Rated on 12-31-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a small white head with a short retention, transparent pale yellow body. The Aroma is wheat, citrus hops, and fruity. The Taste is malty, wheat and hint of citrus hops. The Palate is lightly bubbly and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, I did not care for the flavor of this beer as the flavors just did not join together very well. This beer lacks character and had no WOW factor for me. It is not a "bad" beer. I simply was not impressed with the flavor.

angel77 (1062) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 13, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. Marzo de 2013. Muy maltosa y con gran carga de cereales y trigo que la debería hacer más suave y ligera pero no, todo lo contrario, presenta un cuerpo medio bastante aspero con ligero Amargor final. No me convence.

Chudwick (2175) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12oz bottle - nose is bread with grass clippings. Slight citrus presence. Easy to drink though there a slight cardboard aftertaste. Not a beer to have after shoveling yet more snow. Gets better as it warms. I would drink a Blue Moon over this.

Light hazy colored. Malty smelling. Not much after taste and leaves palate slightly dry. Basic ale taste and not much of the wheat flavor.
