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.

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: slight white head, straw color, light cloudy. light lacing. Aroma: wheat, lemon grass, citrus, light caramel.

Rated based on notes taken 27 Dec 2011 -- A very nice pale ale. One of the first Southern Tier beers that didn’t have that bright hop presence.

Transfer from BA review on 7-15-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a straw yellow color with one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave only a very light amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest citrus and spice. There is a good presence of orange as well as some nice aromas of clove and cardamom. Mixed with these aromas are lighter aromas of yeast and banana with a wheaty bread smell. Taste – The taste begins on the wheatier side with notes of citrus sweetness. The wheat bread and citrus orange flavors are soon meet with notes of yeast and some cardamom more towards the middle of the taste. As the taste advances some of the citrus orange transitions to a slightly more lemon flavor and is accompanied notes of clove and yeast coming to the tongue at the end. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter to medium side with a slightly higher than average carbonation level. Very average and fitting. Overall – It is quite easy to drink and has some good flavors. Makes for a tasty session.
