Sweetwater Sch’Wheat

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
After a few seconds of settling down, the pour gives a very suspiciously clear, macro-esque body and a head that fades badly. Despite the description on the label, the beer looks as though it has been filtered and in that respect it’s horribly disappointing.
It’s difficult to see how this beer creates much of a “wheat” effect at ALL. From the clarity of the look, to the lack of head and the largely watery body, the beer looks and drinks much more like a macro lager than anything else. Almost zero depth in the mouth.
Perhaps a touch of citrus freshness in the taste, but it is also muted to say the least. Corny taste in the finish. Reminds me a little of a Bud Lite lime – gulp!
Not really offensive in any way, but a weak effort and especially considering it is replacing the much better Hummer. Disappointing all around.
