Got at Kroger’s on Broadway in Fountain City. Dark Amber. Long, beige head. Aroma: Grapefruit, earthy hops, perfume. Flavor: Same with some caramel, dry. Bitter finish. As to the comment, I am an "Old Sailor" and I approve of this brew.

Fine to drink. Nice aroma and fetures too. A little bit too bitter as the beers from this company.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Crisp amber and deep copper coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of earthy malt, toffee, light hops and a subdued nuttiness that’s noticeable at the end. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong toffee and malt flavours with a light dose of english or low alpha acid hops noticeable and a light sweetness as well. Aftertaste shows a bit of earthiness, a good malt and toffee flavour and some very light hops. Overall, not such a great beer - lacking way too much on the hop profile and only showing a little of the earthiness and toffee flavours throughout - not enough complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Palm Beach Gardens for US$1.99 on 30-December-2013 sampled in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida on 03-January-2014.

Sweetwater Motor Boat is pretty much average. Not much aroma coming from a dark brown tinted pour. The head is fizzy and doesn’t hold very well. Taste is malty with a bitterness that lasts a little too long without any complexity. Motor Boat is ok with a meal but not particularly outstanding on its own.

bubblehouse (229) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Good and malty. Pours a light amber color with a fairly weak aroma. Not my favorite beer but definitely drinkable.

jandd1983 (2085) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2013
In a sampler pack from my son. It poured a clear amber color with a small light tan head. The aroma was slightly fruity and floral with a nice mix of malt and hops. The taste was similar with some pine hops as well and a little bread, fruitiness and resin as the beer warms. It had a light to medium body with average carbonation and a medium to long, bitter finish. Very good.

pinkzambia (1395) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle: Clear amber color with a small head. Hoppy and fruit aroma of perhaps apricots with a little hairspray. Good hoppy flavor with lots of carbonation. Not bad.

IndianaRed (2185) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle pours a hazy amber with a short lived off white head. Light toasted malts and plenty of bitterness. IBUs but not much hop flavor. Kind of what I dont like about ESBs in general.

Westchesterco (789) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a clear amber Colorado with a slight head. The stoma is citrus and the taste is grapefruit that lingers on the palate and leaves the taste on your tongue

Iphonephan (2682) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of grassy hops, caramel and a touch of honey. Medium bodied, high carbonation, bitter finish.
