COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Road trips are balls-out adventures loaded with unexpected twists, just like when this beer hit black ice and got spun!. It started out as an IPA recipe, but halfway down the road it blew a tire and a Pilsner yeast was pitched as a spare; an IPP yo! The fiery Pilsner backbone adds a nitrous-like boost to the van load of hops that would make any German pucker up when those hop afterburners singe their lederhosen!

Brewed with a Lager yeast at Ale temps using Sterling hops and Pilsner Malt to make this a crisp and hoppy twisted up seasonal treat.

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.

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.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 21, 2007
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.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2007
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.

emacgee (4377) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Pours a standard translucent gold with a medium frothy white head. The aroma has more of a hop profile than I usually get from golden ales, sweet aroma, some citrusy hops. Fairly strong flavor, sweet, grapefruit peel hops, not bad, definitely drinkable. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. An excellent warm weather sit around and drink beer.

NIce smell sort of an outdoor smell.. Strong earthy flavor w\ a hint of pepper. Itís a really good seasonal brew for the summer season.
