Light copper color......fluffy head. Faint floral aroma, with subtle citrus notes. Mild hop flavor up front......mouthfeel has a slight crispness. Malt flavors balance out the back......finish has just a hint of a citrus tang. A very easy drinking pale ale.

A very good pale ale. Pours pale amber color, thick head, citrus aroma, slightly malty, citrusy flavor. Definitely one to pick up.

aroma is very faint citrus from the hops. pours a slightly hazy light amber, flavor leans more toward the malt than the hops which I think lends to a good balance . finished with a slight bready and nuttiness.

Decent Pale Ale. Hitler’s birthday in the title, a classy move as always, and underused in my opinion. No dishsoap in the flavor, so that’s another plus. Goods outweigh the bads in this one, aight?

Not bad. Light and pale. Lagerish. Cheap. Little aftertaste. Enough bite, but very light and airy. Not a strong hop nor very crispy. For an 8 dollar 6-pack, it’s barely making the grade.

The aroma is quite excellent, as the complexities of the spicy hop aroma come through to balance out the smell of the malt. The appearance is a little too clear for my tastes, that is for the style. Although it is a fine looking beer with excellent retention. The flavor is quite nice, full hop flavor, but not overboard, placing it well within the pale category without over-stepping its bounds. Clean finish, despite its higher IBU. This pale sits well on your palate, but is a bit on the heavy side. Nice effervescence. Overall, the beer is quite good. I would recommend this pale and think it is great that I was able to pick one up in Nashville. If you keep making more beer like this, please keep branching out of Atlanta, Sweetwater.

I couldn’t bring myself to drink all of this. SweetWATER is appropriate because it seemed more like water than beer. Little flavor and just really watery.

Draft, very light pour. Hoppy would really be descriptive most in the aroma. Flavor has a nice malt character with a longer than usual sweet finish. Hints of popcorn

On draft at the Sweetwater Taphouse in the Atlanta International Airport. Clear golden pour. Great floral hop nose. Piney hop resin flavor. Hop bitter finish.
