Morning Wood Wheat
(Pug Ryan's Brewery)

One of two canned brews by the folks at Pug Ryan’s Brewery in Colorado. With a name like Morning Wood Wheat, it’s no surprise that we could count on our good friend and fellow can fan to help us secure a can of this limited distribution brew. Thanks Woody!

From the Pug Ryan's site:

"A local favorite for years now is becoming a favorite everywhere. This lightly filtered unique recipe produces an easy to drink light beer."

From the Can:

"Nothing quite compares to a Morning Wood*. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Brewed and canned at 9,156 above sea level in Dillon, Colorado, it is no wonder that Morning Wood Wheat is an award winner. Each can is filled at high altitude and with the attitude of our brewers."

(*CraftCans note: using the can graphics as context, “morning wood” appears to be a euphemism for a pre-noon lake cruise aboard a wooden vessel.)

Here we go...

Pour – Bright yellow in our pint glass with a big white head that diminished quickly and left only a few spots of loose drips of lacing around the glass. Cloudiness suggests this will be a bigger-bodied pale wheat.

Aroma – Heavy, wet bread dough with distinct lemon and orange citrus notes.

Taste – Orange sweetness at the start, a yeasty middle, and some drying orange citrus tartness at the finish. Medium body and mouthfeel that has a watery feel about it, perhaps the result of the big carbonation release at the pour.

Overall – Another well-crafted, tasty, and very drinkable American Pale Wheat that is definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on some. This is our tenth canned APW review, and we’ve yet to find two that were close enough in flavor profile and mouthfeel to suggest that any one of them is like another. Try all of them and find your favorite!

NOTES: The brewery at Pug Ryan’s is an adjunct to their steakhouse, and their Tiki bar offers gorgeous views of Lake Dillon. Check out their website for pictures, more information about their beers, and visual treats for foodies (check out their crab filet in the video– wow!).
