COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This seasonal favorite is a tawny gold ale, clean, crisp and refreshing, with a spicy, aromatic finish from Noble, Saaz and Hallertauer hops. It is bolder than traditional Weizen beers and hoppier than maibocks.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Seemed a bit off to me - sourish, but with a funky acidity that I didnt’ care for. Had some citrus and some wheaty malts.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Virtually flat pour. Light gold color. Light citrus nose. Light body, no carbonation, thin, watery. Faint malt and hop flavors. Medium dry finish. What a waste.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Pours a clear light amber with no head. Mild grain aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Wheat, bread, and citrus on the tongue. Watery finish. Watery and bland. Yuck!

guzzler67 (1491) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2003
On tap. Had a clear, golden appearance. Nose was reserved, mostly wheat and other grains. Smooth, spicy taste with little bitterness despite a hop presence. Well carbonated. Malty finish.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2003
American Wheat is the worst style of beer. I think I actually prefer American Standard. Or even Japanese Dry. This one is well made--the malt has a tiny bit of complexity. But wheat without a good yeast is simply worthless.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Bright golden color with excellent clarity. Thin white head that clings to the glass. The palate is maltier and sweeter, than I was expecting. Another boring American wheat.

Not up to their usual standards. Crisp enough, but too watery. Strangely missing the expected strong wheat presence.
