3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A really good blond ale. You can definitely taste the pilsener but strangely, it also tastes something like an ale. I wouldn’t say I love this beer, but it definitely gets points for being interesting and creative.

Bottle. Honey-colored pour with a medium white head. Aromas of grain and hops. Rather thin palate with jazzy hops that linger on the back of the tongue. This beer can’t quite make up its mind what it is...it’s not Sweetwater’s best, but it’s a fun experiment and really not a bad beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It Definitely has a pot quality to the aroma. There is also cheese, corn and grassy hops. The appearance is cloudy gold with a small head. The flavor is astringent with all the elements from the aroma. The palate is thin. I don’t like this one despite all the lovely qualities. j/k

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 2012 version. Pours a nice clear amber with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Aroma is malty with a strong hoppy undertone. Flavor is quite hoppy, more like an IPA than a pilsner, with some bitterness and a malty, fruity undertone. Smooth texture has a fair amount of fizz and average body. If you have had past versions, try this one!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a nice gold color with a slight caramel hue. The beer looks like a brew that my bro and I just brewed. It is just funny how they are charging nearly 9$ for this crap. This beer has a nice fruity aroma. It has a pilsner/fruit aroma. I smell the hops slightly, but they are not that pungent. I can see where it started out as a pils, but they decided to change the recipe. A subtle hop aroma, but mainly matls. Not really that creamy. It seems like they watered the beer down a wee bit. It can be creamy at times, but not as much as I would like it to be. There are some nice flavors here, but there is nothing that stands out. The beer is a huge let down considering Sweetwater is a local brewery to me. For an ale this thing needs some work.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a small short lived white head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of pilsner malt and butter. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden pour, medium fluffy white head. Aroma isbready, butter, and straw. Flavor is pretty much the same buttery, bready and just stale graininess.. It’s worse than a light bmc.

12oz bottle courtesy of brentfeesh. Zesty pale lemon citrus aroma. Gold body with white head. Odd flavor as this one has mild bitter some zesty soap, some dry lemon citrus. Lot going on but quenched the palate leaves a dry citrus aftertaste. This brew would go good with chicken wings if I had some right now. Thanks Brent.
