Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance: From the bottle into a standard pint glass results in a golden body
with remarkable clarity topped with a decent bone white head that leaves some
lacing as it recedes, small bubbles rise continuously, a very appealing beer.
Aroma: The aroma is subdued, slight astringent leafy hoppiness, some grain, very
clean smelling. not much going on here.
Taste: This ale is kind of lagerish with a grain note up front, slightly bitter
and dry a tiny bit of malt sweetness creeps in. Nothing stands out but I guess
that was what the brewer tried to achieve an incredibly balanced brew that is
more on the refreshing side rather than the flavor side, almost no aftertaste.
Overall: This beer would be an excellent choice for a hot summer day and I think
straight from the bottle would do almost no harm (GASP!). Refreshing and easy to
drink I can see having more of theses at the BBQ.
Widmer Brothers Brewing
What started as a dream for two ordinary brothers who just loved beer has now
become a reality for two ordinary brothers who still just love beer. Kurt and
Rob Widmer helped lead the Pacific Northwest craft beer movement in 1984 when,
in their 20s, they dreamed of brewing unique interpretations of traditional beer
styles. In 1986, Widmer Brothers Brewing introduced the first American-style
Hefeweizen; today, the unfiltered cloudy beer is the company’s signature brew
and one of the best-selling wheat beers in the country. Based in Portland, Ore.,
the brewery currently brews a variety of beers including Drifter Pale Ale,
Nelson Imperial IPA, Rotator IPA Series, Drop Top Amber Ale and Pitch Black IPA.
