Easy Street Wheat by Odell Brewing Company
American Pale Wheat Ale
4.60 % ABV

Light and refreshing, Easy Street Wheat is an unfiltered American-style wheat beer. Leaving in the yeast gives the beer a nice, smooth finish and a slightly citrusy flavor. Easy Street Wheat gets its name by brewers “taking it easy” and not filtering the beer. However, for ultimate enjoyment, we encourage you to work just a little harder in pouring it: pour 2/3 of the beer into a glass, swirl what’s left to stir up the yeast, then pour the rest and enjoy.

A vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a four finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is an amber color that shows a mostly clear, copper-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is a mix of grassy wheat, pale crackers, fresh thrushed hay and a touch of herbal hop notes. The nose is quite clean of any fermentation character, though it maybe has a hint of green apple if you really dig for it. Not a bad nose, but fairly un-inspired.

There is a nice grassy grain character to this up front, as it moves across the tongue it picks up some toasty, biscuit like malt flavor, fresh crushed wheat character and a soft bread-like note. The finish has a touch of something that seems a bit metallic, perhaps tinny, and it also finishes a bit flat. A herbal hop note lingers in the finish, but strangely isn’t all that appealing. There is also a touch of bitterness that seems to come more to the fore the longer into the finish I get; it remains a light note though and perhaps even has a peppery edge to it.

There is not a whole lot going on here; this is a straight forward example of an American Wheat beer. Even when judged against the style though, it doesn’t seem to achieve quite the rusticity that something like Widmer manages to even achieve. This seems a bit too clean, even for an American Wheat. Not bad though, and certainly far from objectionable.
