Tommyknocker "Jack Whacker"
Tommyknocker Brewery - Idaho Springs, Colorado USA
Wheat Ale (ABV 4.7%) (IBU 15)

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a hazy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that receded at a steady pace down to a thin film with a medium collar and had some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a straw malt and a moldy yeast with notes of wheat, lemon grass, a hint of candi sugar and a mild spiciness.

The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of candi sugar at first and then became rather yeasty with a touch of lemon grass and a bit of spice towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short while being mostly of a citrusy wheat taste.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice mild carbonation.

Overall a light refreshing brew with a good sweet citrus presence, which matched well with the yeasty wheat flavor...
