COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Road trips are carefree adventures that usually take unexpected twists, like when we created this beer. It started out as a Pilsner recipe, but halfway through it blew a tire and Ale yeast was put on as the spare. The result was so good, it never could have been planned!

Hazy yellow color with nice citrus hop aroma. The taste was mainly refreashing grapefruit.

Thanks to CaptainCougar for the bottle. Slightly hazy straw color with a small head. Aroma is grassy and floral hops with sweet malt that borders on honey. Also some lemon. Taste is fruity/lemony with a bitter end thats really quite good. A great hot weather beer.

Bottle from goldtwins - thanks! Pours a soft yellow with a modest white head and light lacing. Nose is mild of hops and maltiness. Taste is more hoppy (citrus) than expected for this style. A little grassey and malty, but a nice session ale nonethless.

12oz bottle. A Cream Ale with Pilsner malts and hops?? Light yellow in color. Grassy hops and malts. Light ale body. Odd and hopefully forgettable.

Thanks Badgerben for sharing. Grainy nose with hints of hops. Nondescript grainy body with a little bit of hops.

8/12/2007: Sweetwater Road Trip is golden yellow in color and slightly hazy. The small, foamy white head doesnít last very long. The aroma is doughy yet slightly sweet with some fruit as well as hints of grass and spice. The flavor contains pale, bready malt and is modestly sweet with some fruitiness to it. It has a spicy and grassy bitterness in the finish like a Pils. The bitterness actually begin to bite just before the finish and then sticks, inviting another drink. This beer has a clean finish and is light, with a smooth mild level of carbonation. Overall it is zesty and refreshing. Quite interesting and lively.

12 fl. oz. bottle (Best if enjoyed by 09/17/07) slipped into my cooler by decaturstevo at the August Cincinnati RateBeer Gathering. Thanks Stevo! Iím glad you could make it up here and I appreciate the thoughtfulness. Rating #47 for this beer...

Another from Brentfeesh. Yellow color with no head. Primarily a grainy aroma and taste, with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Rather plain, but a nice little session ale.

This is like a very light lager. It isnít bad, there is a little malt flavor, but very light overall. The pilsner would have been more interesting. Very light hops in the finish.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Single 12-oz bottle shared my Badgerben, pours a pale golden yellow brew with an average white head that slowly dissolves and leaves behind a decent head and lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, citrus zest, musty wood and a touch of pepper. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of multi-grain malt, slightly bitter hops and some spice. Finish is slightly sweet, and then a clean cut taste.

Bottle best before Sept. 17, 2007. Pours a light golden color with a small white head. Actually, this is pretty light. The aroma has strong papery hops with touches of cedar, a bit of fresh corn, and a lightly sweet citrus aspect. Hm, pretty interesting beer here. I once had a pilsener-styled ale from another brewery that was a bit disappointing. Iím not a big pilsener fan, but this has some admiral qualities borrowed from the style and melded into this summer quencher. The finish is pretty dry due to the hops, but the initial deliver wets my whistle. This is obviously meant to be a light-bodied summer beer, but it has admirable character and no real flaws. Itís not overly sweet, itís clean, and itís just a little bit different than a straight up golden ale or a pils. Probably not strikingly variant enough for me to identify those nuances without reading it on the label, but itís a neat beer. One of the better in a lackluster style.
