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 itís 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.

cheap (4055) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Hazy lighter vanilla color. Off lager aroma. Thin teafroth head. Smell is somewhat of burnt toast and near hops. Typical southern tier background flavors, must be their water. Not much carbonation. 422 and 224 are local highways around here and a 442 is a car, a cool car. So what is the meaning about this beer, oh, yea the earth day. What a way to ruin my day. Thumbs down on the name.

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Clear golden with a fleeting white head. Tart wheat aroma with cabbage/sulfer. Medium body. Light roasted wheaties flavor with a mildly bitter finish.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2009
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan color. Intensely crisp upon the first sip, but mellows into a smooth sweet malty mouthfeel with a crisp, lemony finish. I suppose this is done in the American Wheat style, and with that in regard, it is quite nice. Sugary and almost corny, in a non-adjunct way. Middle of the road, but done with class.

bigrond (1478) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2009
The best thing I can say about this beer is...it was not bad. That being said - it has a weak flavor, light taste and no palate. And worst of all - low alcohol.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Lightly hazed, light straw color liquid with a voluminous slightly off-white head. Interesting scents of dry wheat and cereal, lime, celery, and grassy weeds. Iíll bite, a bit earthy nose. Nose mellows after a short period of time revealing more wheat and malt. Brash grassy, earthy, herbal hops attach from the start. Lightly acidic fruit in the middle, perhaps peach and mango. More herbal hops in the finish and into the linger. Shares some e of the characteristic of GL Grassroots. Was never a big fan of American/Wheat ales to begin with. This new twist is not to my liking.

Elwood (3190) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow with a small, foamy, white head. Light wheat and grain nose with honey and floral notes as well. Medium-high carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. Wheat, lemon, mineral, honey, grass, a little spice, and a touch of soap on the palate. There is a lingering soap and malt finish. Overall a mild and refreshing wheat.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle @beer:30. Pours nearly clear gold with a thin white head. Lightly floral aroma with some honey and a hint of sourness. Medium body, somewhat watery texture with moderate carbonation. The taste is sort of nondescript, but hoppier than expected for the style, which was a nice surprise. Earthy dry finish.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Soft aroma of lemon and grass, not much else. Straw yellow color with a hazy body, 3/4" fuzzy head, and spotty lacing. Balanced feel with a sharp, quick bitter bite. Light bodied with an empty finish. Grainy flavor with plenty of dry wheat and mild, bland hops. A touch of citrus zest and flowers. Kind of blah in the grand scheme of things.

jstraw (1922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Pale gold with good, creamy white head / Musty nose of grain and honey / Light to medium body, creamy with moderate carbonation and good fruit, and good, dry finish / Perfumed, resinous flavors of grain, grass, lemon, and honey / Probably reflecting my general disinterest in wheats, I enjoy this more substantial one, reminiscent of a Dortmunder.
