2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is one of the palest, least flavorful ales I’ve ever had. Faint hop presence, no malts in sight, watery. I’m sure Sweetwater intends this as a gateway beer - or did - but today it just tastes dated.

Can 355 ml. Amber golden colour with medium head. Fruity hoppy and spicy taste with medium bitternes. Some dryness in the aftertaste. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Caramel and a slightly nutty aroma come through with some grapefruit notes. The beer has a white soapy head that leaves a messy layer along with a medium thick ring above a mostly clear honey colored beer. The taste is a nice balance between medium bitter and sweet. The medium bodied beer has a light, fluffy carbonation, and a creamy texture. It finishes with a grassy and caramel flavor as well as some citrus. A clean, resin-esque quality makes up the aftertaste.

Notes of pine, citrus/grapefruit, somewhat bitter hops, and malty finish. Decent but not great.

Dull yellow-bronze color. Hazy. Pretty heavy on the malt. Centennial hops, light citrus, wheat, pine. Pretty light body. Bitter finish. Good carbonation. I dig the chewy texture to it. It’s actually a rather harsh beer. I couldn’t drink too many of these.

Look: hazy golden-amber, light beige, frothy head with poor retention.

Pours a nice amber color with white head. Pine and citrus with a little malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt than I expected.
