12 oz bottle from Decaturstevo (thanks!). Pours a semi-clear golden/orange with a small head. Not much arooma except a bit of caramel and grassiness. Flavor is pretty mellow and a bit bland. Not much to say here...less than average. Thin and watery. Maybe i need to try a fresher bottle?

Sweetwater, while gaining commercial appeal (not the Memphis paper) still manages to crank out some of the better brews in the South. The 420 is excellent...it has a very unique flavor that is fairly hoppy. Cool, light brown, good laces. Excellent on tap.

You know. I am not sure how my opinion on this one should be taken. I had just finished a Terrapin Rye Pale Ale and this one was nowhere close to the beer that the Terrapin was. So I may actually be rating it low due to the circumstances.

Bottle. Small white smooth and somewhat of a fizzy head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, carbonation, transparent, and a gold hue. Nose was malty, piney hoppy. Piney, hoppy flavor but not overly done.

Very tasy brew! Make sure to check the drink by date because this local treasure is not pasteurized and therefore has a unique taste that is sacrificed with a short shelf-life. Pick one up if you’re in the area, you won’t be dissappointed!

This is a really good beer. I drank it after a 7 hours drive. Just what I needed. I tasted kind of fruity with a nice bitter taste of hops. There wasn´t really any head on the beer.

Had this beer on tap at the Boar’s Head Tavern in Savannah, Ga. After the first swallow I had to force myself to drink it just so I could justify the 5 or 6 bucks I spent, hoping that it might get better. Not everyone can be satisfied...

Bottle, purchased either in Nashville or in Bellevue, KY (Cincy). Clear copper and gold colored body. Crisp and bitter pine sap hops up front, piney, syrupy and oily like a proper APA... classic pale ale fresh hop cone grassy flavor, really nice actually. Lightly sweet, crisp with a bit of a plastic malt flavor behind. Decent, certainly drinkable, something I would buy in 6 or 12 packs for sure, but we’re not talking about any best-of lists.
