COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This incredibly drinkable ale is made with malted wheat and finished with Nugget hops.
It is crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of hop bitterness to round it out.

This was by far the worst beer in their line up. There was a slight hint of wet hay in the aroma and the flavor was more akin to a pale lager than anything else. I could barely drink this.

Sampler wheel at the brewery. Holy shit I didn’t realize they’d be 7oz tasters. Now I have 56oz of beer in front of me arranged in a wheel that makes me feel like I’m captaining a pirate ship. Hunkering down because this is going to be a long night. Anyway ... Clear straw pour with white head. Deeply toasted cereal wheat with honey is the impression from the aroma. Also feet. Lightly sweet taste up front with a really harsh, unpleasant bitterness in the finish. So much bitterness it hurts. 7oz is going to be an eternity. Banana flavored wheaties coated in nettles then burned and rubbed with hops. Palate: feels like bitterness coating my entire mouth. Overall: not great.

Another unfinished flavor, I.E. low alcohol with a lot of sweetness but no real flavor. Finish was fine but didn't have a lot of aroma. I'm not a wheat beer guy so I'm not the best judge of them.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with white head. The aroma is very grainy with some bread crust and toast, maybe some earth. The flavor is lemon, earth, bread crust, and seltzer. Dryish finish, a little astringent. Meh.

Had on tap at the brewpub with my fiancee but unfortunately was eating dinner and didn’t take good notes.

Dogbrick (8269) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a hazy yellow color with a thin ivory white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing. Wheat and sweet fruit in the nose. Light body with flavors of wheat, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is clean and fruity with a short sweet aftertaste. An "introductory" beer through and through.

gold with a thin white head. Grainy dough in the nose. Malt, dough, citrus, pepper, and honey flavor. Slightly bitter, kind of watery.

On tap at the brewpub. This is not retired. Simply the brewpub changed its name. Same brewer, same beer, same recipe. Pours pale yellow with a whispy thin white head. Slight diacetyl aroma with an odd off-flavor fruity mistake flavor. Little to no hop bitterness.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Attractive looking beer...cloudy and yellow with a thick white head that left some lace on the glass. Dry grainy aroma and flavor with a touch of bread dough and citrus. Decent American wheat.

On tap at the brewpub. The body was a very hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma was lemons with some sweet cake donuts. There was also a smell of bathroom cleaner. The taste had some woody dry soap. There was also some strange lemon zest. A bad wheat.
