ToeHead Wheaton Ale
Source: Bart Fortune
Recipe added: 11/14/99
This recipe is much like Pyramid Wheaton Ale back a few years ago when it was more hoppy. This beer will clear nicely after two to three weeks in the fridge. It has a mild noticeable bitterness and adding a lemon will give it a extra twang.
