First time having anything from Sweetwater. 12 oz bottle with a best by date. Gorgeous color, sweet aroma and taste. Maybe a slight metallic taste but I donít mind it. Some piney hops in there, and a smooth, slightly bitter finish. Overall Iím very impressed with this one.

Good and easy to drink. Mild hop aroma with pale malts. Golden color with a good white head. Crisp, clean and light palate. Highly carbonated. Clean and well-blended flavors. Grassy pale malts with a good hops bitterness throughout. Went well with a meal.

Itís very ok. Pretty average beer. Ended up buying a sixer. Wish I could have gotten a single. Taste is bitter earthy grass. Some malt flavors. Really, just ok.

floydslip (141) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2014
Fairly decent looking burnt orange colored beer with a thin fizzy white head. Somewhat doughy nose with light yeast, mild musty hops, and slight funk. Flavor has some mild sweetness counterbalanced by a little bit of bitterness. The flavor is reminiscent of a squishy honey-topped white bread I used to have when I was a kid. Not unpleasant, but not particularly memorable either.

Dr_Fellini (275) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy light amber golden orange color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is citrusy, light sweetness. Flavor is mildly bitter, with a hint of hoppy citrus. Light in body. Easy to drink.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden orange color. Citrus aroma. Light flavor of earth and citrus. A little too light for my liking, but still decent.
