12 oz bottle courtesy of GAManiac. Thanks, Grant! Pours a nice dark muted gold, a touch of haziness, a bit of orange, a moderate bright white cakey head that laces well. Aromas are lemony citrus, fresh cut grass, pale malts, a touch of bread. Nice. Initial is light bodied, lemon and lemonheads, grass, pale malts, bread, a bit of flowers. Light, lemon is the dominant factor, a touch of lemonhead or lemonade. Quenching, not too hoppy for a highly sessionable beer. A pretty good beer.

Originally found this bottles and got a six pack. They was in the back of the fridge so I didn’t get going on them till I found this again in a sampler 12 pack of CANS. From the bottle, this is a slightly hazy golden brew with a nice head that hangs on. Aroma and taste are some piney hops and decent malt backing. Really enjoying these while working outside on this nice day. Will finish it off with those 3 CANS later.

The Sweetwater 420 has is a pale ale with a nice hoppy aroma. Nice one finger head with decent lacing. Adequate taste and overall above average but not great beer.
