Beer Review, Agave Wheat

Breckenridge Agave Wheat
Denver, CO
Unknown ABV

Appearance: Yellow body, hazy, with a thin but persistent foamy white head. Some effervescence. Not bad. 4.0/5

Smell: Strong aromas of citrus, slightly dry. Has a very yeasty nose. Has approximately the same aromatics as every other American Pale Wheat Ale I've tried. 3.0/5

Taste: Strongly citrus, somewhat "gritty" -- earthy, perhaps? Finishes sweet, leaves a slightly cloying aftertaste. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Thicker than average for the style, slightly chewy. 4.0/5

Drinkability: For an APWA, this is actually not bad at all. The style usually leaves a lot to be desired, but this one is a nice quaffer. I probably wouldn't buy it again, but that's more a personal preference thing for the style than anything else. 3.5/5

Overall: 3.55/5
