I poured 312 like any respectable wheat beer should be poured, like so:
In all seriousness, this is a great way to make sure your wheat beer gets a [near] perfect pour every time (I would recommend wiping the mouth of the bottle before you pour it since it does touch the beer). The golden, unfiltered haze of the beer is inviting and the head is thick and offers nice lacing around the glass.
The scent is all fruit as sweet citrus dominates the nose. Dish-soap lemon zest finishes off the smell... you get the picture here. Very thin, clean and fruity scent.
Very thin, dare I say watery, beer with surprisingly low carbonation. Nothing special here with even more similarity to your generic adjunct lager.
You're a savvy reader, so you noticed the disconnect between my preface and the body of the review. Call it nostalgia, call it frugality but I still have a favorable overall impression of 312 despite its mediocre taste. It is a great value at $7.99/ 6 pack or $11.99/ 12 pack and it does taste good while remaining a very simple beer.
Score: B 3.5/5
