2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma obvious of wheat and lemon, not much else. Taste matches, with the addition of stale bread and yeast. Gets easier to drink as it warms up. Refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. Pours a pale yellow color, clear except for the thousand tiny granules of yeast floating around. A nice compact soapy white head. Good lacing. Aroma shows some Kolsch like smells and some Pilsner malt perhaps. Some subtle wheat notes too but overall this is very mild and kinda bland. Flavor is watery, thin and dry. Disappointing.

12oz bottle from Swolf3. Pale yellow color with a small white head. Crisp, clean wheat aroma, slight lemon aroma as well. Very smooth, light yeast and bread flavor, would be pretty good during the hot summer months.

Southern Tier 422 is a hazy pale golden ale with a thin, bubbly head that fades, but leaves nice lacing. There are notes of lemon, grass and bread in the aroma. It has a very smooth medium-light body with a clean finish. It is very lightly flavored with wheat and lemon. Thereís not much bitterness to speak of. Itís slightly sweet at the finish. Itís very refreshing and very sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Hazy yellow pour with a white film of head. Light wheaty notes in the aroma meshing with cereal grain and lemony grassy notes- dry. Dry flavor as well- lots of grains- light wheat and lots of cereal mesh with a grassy presence. Some odd notes on the back that are reminiscent of artificial sweetener (I get that with some other offerings from ST- is it just under attenuation?) Not that bad, just a bit off on the back.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale straw colored pour. Clear with lots of bubbles, fluffy white head. Floral malt aroma. A little pungent and sweet. Bitter malt flavor. Lots of cereal malt flavor. Not much of a hop presence. Not very good, but not bad. Easy to drink and a decent beer for a ball game.
