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.

EithCubes (4852) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle. Nose a lightly sour, mildly hoppy mess, some sweetness with vanilla and wheat. Pours hazy pale yellow with a rocky bright white head and lace. Light medium body is very soft with lots of wheat and a nice wheat resolution, there’s strong and filling carbonation with a low-light of light grain. Fresh with some fruitiness from the hops, would probably be a very good beer for the height of summer, still works well even now as a refreshing American Wheat, a terribly conceived style that nonetheless occasionally produces good beers (like this one).

JanLaursen (3064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Light hazy yellow with a small, but lively, bubbly white head. Aroma is kinda subdued with light grain, hay, light citrus, dough, fragant yeasty notes. Watery and light, rather sweet, very light bitter. Not very interesting

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Poured clean, with a golden yellow color and a small, lacing off-white foam. Corn and honey in the nose. Fairly simple aroma, mostly malty, with hints of honey, bread, and perhaps a bit of lime. Smooth on the palate, with medium dense body and lively carbonation. Simple, basic, but refreshing, very summerish. If that’s what it is meant to be, then great, but otherwise a basic ale. Nothing is really wrong here, but seriously lacking character.

teddybeer (2221) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head with short duration. Aroma is light malty with citrus notes. Flavor is light malty, slightly bittery with citrus hints. Short final.

1guywith_aboat (223) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours yellow. Aroma is spicy yeast and some malted wheat. Flavor is mild wheat ale with a very tame hop presence. Good but too light all around for my taste. Still not bad.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Biscuity nose with a hint of lemon. Pours a pale straw gold with a quickly thinning pure white head. Flavour is a bit nothingy in a lot of ways - slight wheaty tang and a slight sharpish, back of the throat finish, more cereal and citrus notes throughout but all told a little bit of a lame duck this.

Patrickctenchi (3606) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Cloudy yellow.....thick white head. Wheat, orange aroma. Taste is grainy...citrus, slightly bitter lemon....moderate herbal bitter. No sweetness at all.... Very plain and generic...

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 19, 2013
35.5cl bottle. Appearance is quite simple: golden with small white frothy head, there’s not much to say. Aroma is wheat, cereals, and caramel, more complex than expected. The flavour is mostly banana, toffee and hops. Palate: sweet and dry. Light body, soft carbonation. Drinkable, would be better with less sweetness though.

haddon90 (1456) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a foggy golden color with a thin head. Strong wheat presence with a slight sense of hops. Tastes like a hoppy wheat but not really that great of a combo. Probably the most disappointing Southern Tier beer I have had.

keepersj12 (2684) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Nice summer beer. Pours hazy pale yellow with a thin head. The aroma is bread with a bit of lemon. The lemon is more evident in the taste. Refreshing and light, finishes dry and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
