Grasshöpper Wheat Ale

Grasshöpper Wheat Ale, by Calgary's Big Rock Brewery, is a bright and cheerful wheat beer sold in 341mL bottles. Containing 5% alcohol, Grasshöpper pours a highly carbonated clear straw colour. The aroma is grainy, but with some considerable sweetness and notes of corn. The flavour is unexpectedly sweet initially, before turning gently hopward for a mild, bitter finish. Notes are primarily sweet and grainy.
 Grasshöpper is a pretty enjoyable little brew.  It's crisp and refreshing, but a touch too sweet to make it entirely sessionable for me. Still, its a well-crafted and accessible beer. It's great for sitting on a patio. 

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
