As Homer Simpson once said: bor-ing! James Page’s yawn-inducing entry looks like a lager, smells like a lager, and tastes like a lager. It does say wheat ale on the label, doesn’t it? There’s a tiny, tiny citrus note at the end of the sip if you let it warm a little, but other than that I really don’t see the point. To quote another famous drunk, Charles Bukowski, who penned while undoubtedly hammered on cheap wine, “If you are going to try, go all the way. Otherwise don’t even start.” I hate poetry, but I know profound wisdom when I read it.
