3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Head was white and dissipated relatively quickly. The aroma and flavor were dominated by subdued malty caramel with a bit of citrus in the background. Slightly sweet on the tongue. Sadly, this was one of their better beers, IMO.

A barely above average hefe. Aroma is sweet with a malty background. Garnished with a lemon that was not necessary. Appearance was thick and cloudy. Mouthfeel and flavor was very nice and a smooth taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draft at brewery, 02/2006) I had ordered a Pale Ale and the server brought me the Washoe Wheat ... they must have had their taps mixed up because ordering a Washoe Weat brought what could only have been the Pale. This is a typical American Wheat Ale using a Bavarian yeast. Slight banana and clove nose -- but not overpowering. Unfiltered. Hazy but beautiful gold with nice white head. Hints of banana and clove again in the taste, but definitely tart with a good bit of the wheat coming thorugh. WARNING: served by default with lemon on the rim -- so hopefully the taps are still mislabled so they don’t polute the aroma of this decent beer with any citric acid!

This was a solid wheat beer. Nice and light and refreshing yet it still packed a decent amount of flavor. The flavor was quite fruity actually, like citrus. Very drinkable.

This beer rocks.
Hazy and the color of straw, this beer was a bit bland in the nose. The flavor, however, was very malty and very well-hopped. Just a little off balance to the hop side. The finish was nice. Dry and slightly bitter. A bit flat in the end, but a very good wheat beer. Very drinkable.
