2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear brighter golden with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet, dusty lemon zest and bready notes with another layer of lighter fruit behind.. on the softer side overall, and nothiní wrong with it. The flavor was quite hoppy with lemon and floral notes primarily.. sweet bready notes and a bit of caramel beneath.. medium-long sharper bitter finish wasnít so enjoyable. Lighter-bodied, sharp, and rather out of balance on the palate.. didnít care too much for this.

I guess there is a Sweetwater Brew I donít care much for.... The 420 is one of my favorite session beers. I think I would rather drink a coors than this, just based on the cost. Not a fan of the aftertaste of this one... at least with coors you just have basic beer... this is too swanky...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This blonde ale pours a yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is sweet and a touch citrusy. A light to medium bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are mild (well a lot for a blond ale) but kind of citrusy. Good flavor. Nice session ale. Not complex, but nice tasting and easy drinking. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly sweet woth a touch of hops.

bonus via trade. Pours clearish yellow with a 2 finger bright white head. Nose is very minorly hoppy with some floral notes. Taste is pretty unappetising, perfumey and off hops. eh.

Poured a clear golden color with a small white head. Floral, grainy and sulfury aroma. The flavor also had sulfur and grain with a fairly dry moderately bitter finish. Light-medium body.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I just didnít like this. Not enough going on, and what WAS going on wasnít all that impressive. Poured golden, small white head. Nose is grassy, a bit hoppy and lemony. Taste is just kind of funky...slight notes of mint were interesting, but didnít help. Iím generally a Sweetwater supporter, but I wonít get this again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer poured a light golden color with a moderate white head. The aroma consists of perfume and lemons. The flavor contains some lemons, vanilla, and grassy notes. A bit of a spicy finish. Overall this is a good session ale/lager just dont look for anything complex.

The color was a light, crisp golden. The head was creamy and white. The aroma was hops with a slight macrobrewed corny taste. The flavor was pretty hoppy for a golden ale. The palate was thin bodied. The finish was abrupt.
