Mild citrus fruitiness to the bland aroma. Clear golden body with white head that recedes to ring. Mildly sweet flavour with light bitterness. In a blind taste-test, I wouldn’t suggest this was a micro-brew product. Strong carbonation. Light body. Sampled in Dallas, 2001. Bottle. Entered from notes.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [draft at MacGregor’s - Rochester, NY] Didn’t know this was retired. They have quite a few kegs of this left, although I caught the tail end of one. Pale and hazy yellow with a thick white head. Semi-sweet aroma of malts and citrus. The taste is sweet as well, citrus, mainly lemon, with a touch of grains and a slightly dry and crisp finish.

i useed to love this beer, why did they have to retire it? this was a good light summer brew, poured golden with a medium sized white head that quickly dissapates, good smell of sweet malts, and citrusy lemon, good lemony taste, some carbonation, with a crisp smooth finish.

It was handed to me, so why not give it a whirl. Sparkling amberish gold, thin white fizzy head. Nose was interesting to say the least with hints of honey, lemon milk, grass, and softer notes of caramel. Flavor was similar and actually grew on me a bit with additional lemon pledge tones, citrus, and wheat. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying, crisp, lemony wheat finish. I wouldn’t buy it personally, but I could easily chug a few of these while mowing the lawn...

Too bad this was retired... a nice, hoppy brew with just the right hint of lemon make, er, made this one of my favorite summer brews.

Apparently the brewer found this American wheat too weak to stand on its own, so they actually added lemon after the fact. The result is a nice looking, golden beer that smells like Lemon Pledge. The taste is still just a watery, grainy brew with a poof of lemon. No aftertaste. I can see why this beer was retired. (How old is this bottle that I bought earlier today?)

jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Out of the long ago bin, I will rate it as originally perceived: Cloudy yellow in a pilsener glass, frothy white head. Nose is faint wheat and strong citrus. Lemon flavors predominate in the flavor, with some wheat and minimal hops character. Finishes clean with a slight bready aftertaste. Good.

Nice and refreshing - a good summer beer. You can just make out the hint of lemon.

DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 19, 2004
(12 oz bottle) More flavorful than your standard "refreshing" summer brew, this is more of an amber lager, than a wheat beer; It has a fairly malty character with a very mild hops, however the supposed lemon flavor is imperceptible, as are the wheat malts being used; Somewhat sweet, especially in the finish which has a honey flavor; There's also a bit of orange citrus as the beer warms; The nose is lightly sweet and malty, again with almost no detectable hops; Medium bodied, with a lasting sweet palate; Deep golden color is quite attractive; Off-white head is gone very quickly, despite the army of quickly-rising carbonation bubbles that dissipate immediately upon reaching the beer's surface; No lacing; Not great, but definitely better than I expected

2.9

Great beer for sitting around on a nice summer day. Refreshing, lemon with a hint of honey flavor. Great after (or during) yardwork.
