COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Signature Series
Craft Beers Gold Standard
Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not to worry if you havent, weve bottled it for you. Its prairie goodness so pure that no matter where you choose to enjoy it, just close your eyes to find yourself in that field of dreams.

Little Known Fact
Truly a home-grown, honest-to-goodness Albertan beer. All of Grasshoppers wheat is trucked in from the Lethbridge area, while its delicious barley malt comes exclusively from central Alberta.

A little boring , tiny taste of lemon, a bit flat aroma... But very easy to drink, would be great summertime lakeside. Doesnt taste like a 5% beer, could be trouble :)

Crisp and clear. A refreshing light lager without a lot of flavour. Good for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Booooorring. Nothing much happening in this beer. Wouldnt recommend to craft lover fans, it is more like just a basic lager beer with the slightest of hint of wheat.

Mild beer flavour. Comes in very fresh where I live. Pours light golden. Tastes like a light lager. Good on a hot day.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4983) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Big Rock in Seoul. Very clear for a wheat beer, nice fluffy head. Served with a slice of lemon so a citrus aroma. Not too good flavor, a bit sour with just a hint of spice but pretty bland. Red Rock reminds me of your average Japanese craft brewery, making kind of bland beers but then again maybe thats only the beer available in Seoul.

I had some really good beers on this trip. This wasnt one of them. Faint lemon and wheat. Nothing else to speak of.
