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.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Pours a clear, minimally hazy yellow/gold colour with a minimal, sudsy head that leaves some spotty lacing. The nose is bland, with corn, pale wheat, doughy bread, and a whisper of citrus. The flavour is about the same, grainy, and hardly any hop flavour at all, accept for a mild lemon zest. The emphasis here is really on the light bready flavours with an overtone on lemon. It does taste very fresh though, and it is extremely quaffable. I guess it achieves what it aims to do. The mouthfeel is slightly slick, perfectly carbonated and finishes almost as clean as Pilsner beers. I’ll be throwing quite a few of these back this summer it seems. Digging the pro-enviro concept!

shadey (1970) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2009
12oz bottle from BOTW. Pours a light yellow color with some haze. Not a lot of head, but some tight white bubbles. Aroma is lightly citrus, mostly lemon. Nice easy to drink citrus flavor - the lemon makes this really refreshing and easy to drink. Great summer beer.

Pours slightly hazy, golden body with no head. Aroma is sweet lemon drop candy and lemon peel. Taste is resfreshing with a pleasant mouthfeel.

Headbanger (3491) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2009
12oz bottle 5/10/09 (Binny’s Plainfield)-Pours a hazy yellow with a decent size white head. Aromas of wheat and a little citrus. Begins with wheat and grains then a bit of grass and it finishes with a bit of dryness. This light bodied brew is somewhat disappointing knowing who its coming from. Was expecting a lot more of this bland wheat ale.

TheAlum (6146) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of Archer Liquors singles selection (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy lemony straw, small bright white bubbly head that dissipates to a film clings a bit. Aromas are a bit musty, wheaty stink with lemon notes, light fruity esters, but the stink gets to me. That shouldn’t be a wheat ale. Initial is liht bodied, preaching some mild grainy and cereal qualities, a touch of hop floral and lemon. Grass and lemon, a touch of breadiness and cereal, but a bit bland overall. Lacks body even for the style. Dissappointing largely. A mediocre wheat ale.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2009
6pack from wholefoods Bowery. Cool Eco concept brew. Pour is hazy yellow. Nose is of lemon drop and sugars. Taste is hoppy and of wheat. A solid and respectable wheat ale, very sessionable.

MrBunn (2528) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. Body is hazy & light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly grassy with a touch of lemon and some wheat. Flavor is pointlessly thin wheat beer with grass and lemon. Otra cerveza... por favor!

dmschefke (570) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2009
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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2009
An easy drinker. Hazy and pale yellow, short white head. Aroma is wheat and fruit. Not much going on in the middle, the finish is lightly citrus hopped, dry and some spices

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2009
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.
