Pours a cloudy yellow color. Smell is of malts and grains. Taste is bready malts, grains, a touch of hops. Overall a refreshing summer beer.

12oz bottle from variety pack - pours unfiltered straw with white head and decent lacing. Nose smells of the weeds I kill routinely in my front yard. Flavor adds light caramel and floral hops with a citric aftertaste. For a style I abhor, this is inoffensive. fairly sweet with a light bitterness kick.

Odd. There is no elegant fruit or floral aroma here - instead, itís earthy, funky, sour lemon zest stuff. Taste, on the other hand - is more subdued; certainly bready, though I would not characterize it as "toasted malt." Seems like a pedestrian wheat, if I had to guess. Has a sharp bite in the finish. Lacing is probably its best attribute. Saving the rest of my bottle for later; drinkable, but likely will not get this again.

Padron4KM (531) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at Tracks in St Paul, Minnesota. Clear golden, decent head, spotty lace. Light grainy aroma, not much going on. Flavor is slightly metallic, with a little biscuit in the background. Finish is short, with some grassy hops. Judging by the bar Iím in, this probably isnít a big mover here.

Tap. Golden. Easy to drink. Not too much flavor. Good to drink outside, not so good to drink when you want good beer.

[Bottle] Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is stale malt with little else. Taste is lightly lemon, malt heavy, quite bitter--really rough and not that pleasant. Quite thin, finish length is average. Overall, the different aspects of this beer are not well integrated, nor are they very pleasant. Not something I plan on revisiting.

fidelis83 (1827) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pale gold with a 2 finger, fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves pretty nice lacing. Aroma of toast, cereal, doughy yeast, and spicy, floral and light citrus hops. Flavor is bready, some tree fruit, citrus and planty hops, cereal. Light to medium body very creamy texture and, medium, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. All around decent, nothing spectacular but flavorful enough and still decently refreshing, but the soft, creamy texture doesnít really help that part. I like the mouthfeel, but it really doesnít fit the other attributes of the beer all that well.

Tap. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with slight white head. Decent, but not amazing. Pretty refreshing summer beer, this hit the spot.

Almost no aroma. Zero head. Very little flavor. Quite aqueous. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
