COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why name a beer Sweet As? Sweet As could be the adjective to describe a fishing hole, a ski run, a sunset glowing behind a mountain or a set of legs that happen to be walking in front of you. Sweet As means ďReally GoodĒ.

12 oz can, thanks Amber. Aroma consists of dough, pine, lemon. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that falls after a minute into a ring of foam. Taste is fairly bitter backed by some sweetness, crisp and refreshing. Doesnít taste 6%. Highly carbonated with a fairly thin body. Nicely made pale.

Refreshing to say the least. The taste is good, though I wish it had a bit more kick to it. Though, Itís not an IPA so maybe i shouldnít judge that so harshly. This round came after something much more distinct.

Iím not sure how I managed to get my hands on a Summer Ale in the middle of Winter, but here it is. Pretty good, not great, but still a very nice Wheat Beer/American Pale Ale.

An American Pale Wheat Ale. It is not as great as I hoped, but it was still a far above average beer.
Earlier Rating: 7/21/2013 Total Score: 2.4
Has a strange peach flavor to it. Good, but not one of the best APAís you will find.

Can from The Bier Stein in Eugene. Thin malt nose, grass, and some citrus. Brown/amber color, fluffy head. Light caramel initial, with wheat, cereal, and light grapefruit. Medium body. Mild, but tasty.

Pours a honey orange gold with sunshine highlights and a fat finger of cream colored foam that dwindles in itís own good time. Smell is subdued and there is no date on this one. Smells like tr0pical lightness, , cracker and some orange. A breath of sweetness from malt and from fruits. So lovely. Taste is more pronounced than the nose. Kiwi and green light sweetness, some berry like fruits and a bit of melon. Itís the melon that is so captivating in this. Itís chilly, icy and green but sweet. There is a light hop bitter and a touch of sweet grass. This beer finishes a bit muddled. The fruits all seem to lose their definition in the finish and itís a jumbled sweetness but itís good. I wish it had been dry but it finishes sweet and with a lingering aftertaste of kiwi. Light creamy and almost crisp mouthfeel Whatís not to like? I had a six pack of this beer and drank it in two days it was that good. I love ti with spicy food. Light , almost crisp and just fantastic flavor!

BrewGoblin (310) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Basically the perfect combination of craft flavour and Macro drinkability. I spent a year in NZ so I instantly had a predilection for this beer. It honestly does a great job of evoking the South Pacific/NZ zeitgeist. Sweet tropical and citrus hops smack the nose. Caramel, some grains, hay but mostly tangerine, mango, lemon, pineapple and that ilk. Very easy to drink and to enjoy. The alcohol is masked well under this sweet as brew bro. Chur!

Out of the can. A: Cloudy yellow-copper, white fluffy head with excellent retention. N: Malt, sweetened grapefruit, lemon . zest, biscuit and cracker. Hay bales and grains. T: Moderately bitter with a pleasing grain and malt background. Medium flavors dancing around. M: Medium bodied, with some resins to stick on the tongue. Creamy and bubbly. O: A post-yard work beer. Has a PNW type bitterness laced through the flavors, but the hops donít add much flavor. A grain forward beer thatís still acceptable.

Bottle pour. Brownish yellow color. Bready aroma. A little malty up front with a smooth biscuit finish. Not a whole lot of flavor, but very drinkable for sure. Overall, itís alright.
