tap at the brewpub - Pours very pale, hazy yellow-green with a small, lingering white head. It has a light, citrus accented aroma. The flavor is light and sweet. Unfortunately it’s also a thin, watery beer with some off bandage like flavor. Not good. Onslow (1541) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2010

Watery brew with virtually no head and not much aroma. Light bodied and light amber in color. At first I thought I detected a nice lemony citrus sensation when I sniffed it, but that was just the lemon hunk in it. Flavor dominated by a clean bitter wheat and yeast combo at the end of the swallow. My sample was a bit warm and the weak, watery, and warm combo didn’t work well for me. Not much else there. For a light beer – it is good.
Had I known this was a light beer, I would have passed it by – the sign aobe the bar just said “Puddingstone Wheat.” In a way, I’m relieved to discover (here on ratebeer) that is a light and so the taste merely reflects on the compromises inherent in brewing something like that, and not on the brewer’s skill.
(Yeah – I know – I should reign in the fawning compliments.)
Thin lightly hazed yellow pour. Rim of white. Light skunky waft of malt. Distant corn tinged sugars of faint malt. Carboard and coarse grain. Palate has a smack of toast and weak plants. Body isn’t bad, but why beat up an American Wheat as your entry level blonde? This comes across as a Broberon Bud Light.
