2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Served without a glass, so I can’t see the color - and no head, of course. Aroma is a tough one too, maybe light grass? Taste is lemon, straw. Inoffensive.

Woody, nutty, malty with a very nice crisp finish. Hints of bitter hops come in at the end. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweetwater Motor Boat has a thin-to-medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, copper appearance, some bubbles, and moderate lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is very citrus oriented (think grapefruit), with background sweetness. Taste is of grapefruit, hop oil, lots of bitterness, a touch of caramel, white bread, and white bread crust. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with a bit of slickness, and Sweetwater Motor Boat finishes semi-dry, refreshing, drinkable, and not like an ESB. Although it does not fit the claimed style, it is still very good. RJT

Toffee colored pour. Big off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Big hop aroma. Oranges and malt. Malty up front that quickly fades to a nice crisp hop flavor. Nice.

Draft at the ATL airport on layover. Nice copper color with an off-white head, and a pleasant toast and green hops aroma. Enjoyable balance between sweet and bitter with a medium body and a clean finish. Can’t pick a much better brew to kill time with in the airport.

Bottle. Clear dark amber, white head and some minimal lacing. Aroma is floral, citrus and pine. Taste is sharply bitter to start followed with a nice bready malt backbone. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Reminds me a bit of a rye IPA; solid brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid low ABV offering from Sweetwater. Drank a half serving at lunch. Pours clear amber with light head. Scent is a touch of grain with a hint of citrus. Taste is mildly sweet with crisp bitter finish. Light-Medium body and somewhat flat. Would like to try this brew on cask. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: 1” fluffy cream colored head, recedes at a moderate rate with lots of lacing. Amber color with a cloudy appearance (probably hop sediment in suspension), significant carbonation bubbles streaming up.
Aroma: Pine and citrus hops dominate the smell. There is some detectable malt as well in the background (a bit of earthy, bready odor).
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, just slightly sticky, highly carbonated in the mouth (almost like drinking a cola), somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: Fairly well balanced as the hops dominate from start to finish – pine, citrus, and floral, even a hint of English type earthy hops. The biscuit quality of the malt helps to even out the taste and there is some caramel sweetness also.
Overall: Great job Sweetwater!
