3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Clear, coppery body with a slim, loose, white head. A few smudges of lacing on the descent.
Smell: Mild bread lightly toasted, faintly grainy and with a razor thin edge of implied sweetness atop hops yielding low hints of rough citrus rind and spice.
Taste: A light infusion of lightly bready pale malts with a hint of grain and sweetness. Spicy, pithy hops with a bitterness accentuated by the crisp carbonation. Dry and bubbly at the tail end with a bit of lingering breadiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: "Who says lighter beers have to be boring?" Well, nobody, I guess, Wild Heaven, but that’s honestly what the vast majority of light beer drinkers want. The ideals of light, cheap beer are deeply ingrained in the population, so changing the average beer drinker’s perception will be a steep, uphill battle. Who knows, maybe they’ll come around. Probably not, but you never know! Me, I’m just happy to have a few low-alcohol brews available.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dark golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale golden tan head. Aroma has malty, wheaty and fruity tones with a woody hint of hops. Flavor has a malty core plus fruity and wheaty/yeasty notes and a woody hop tone that suggests it was dry-hopped. Texture has good body and fizz. This is definitely a good beer for sipping on a hot day while relaxing on the porch.
