Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale

Time for another Goose Island beer. This time it's an American wheat beer. It comes in a 355mL brown bottle with a yellow label. Of course there's no alcohol content displayed.

When opened, the bottle had a yeasty aroma. A bit of hops were also detected. When poured, it had a healthy creamy head that disappeared quickly. Lots of small bubbles formed up. The beer was yellow in colour. There was a bit of haze near the top due to the unfiltered nature of the beer. The aroma of yeast had completely dissipated, and I could only smell a bit of hops.

The first sip was pretty good. The beer had a slight lemony flavour, but without the sourness. Not very bitter at all, and only mildly malty. The beer had a soft mouth feel. The beer went down very easily.
