Bottle. Poured a golden, slightly copper color with a solid, wispy head. Aroma was notes of sweet malts, hops, a touch earthy notes. Sweet notes of hops, malts, sweetness, refreshing. astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Got at Kroger’s on Broadway in Fountain City.
Dark Amber. Long, beige head. Aroma: Grapefruit, earthy hops, perfume. Flavor: Same with some caramel, dry. Bitter finish.
As to the comment, I am an "Old Sailor" and I approve of this brew. Travlr (26430) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle. Served without a glass, so I can’t see the color - and no head, of course. Aroma is a tough one too, maybe light grass? Taste is lemon, straw. Inoffensive. r464 (2377) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Woody, nutty, malty with a very nice crisp finish. Hints of bitter hops come in at the end. Very nice. airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Appearance: not quite transparent brown color, pours with a medium tan head that fades quickly
Aroma: butter, dough, faint, cream
Taste: darker roasted malt, not quite coffee but close, very faint hops taste and then bitterness on the finish
Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste
Overall: probably not a beer is pick out generally but not bad,

Sweetwater Motor Boat has a thin-to-medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, copper appearance, some bubbles, and moderate lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is very citrus oriented (think grapefruit), with background sweetness. Taste is of grapefruit, hop oil, lots of bitterness, a touch of caramel, white bread, and white bread crust. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with a bit of slickness, and Sweetwater Motor Boat finishes semi-dry, refreshing, drinkable, and not like an ESB. Although it does not fit the claimed style, it is still very good. RJT suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Toffee colored pour. Big off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Big hop aroma. Oranges and malt. Malty up front that quickly fades to a nice crisp hop flavor. Nice. jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Draft at the ATL airport on layover. Nice copper color with an off-white head, and a pleasant toast and green hops aroma. Enjoyable balance between sweet and bitter with a medium body and a clean finish. Can’t pick a much better brew to kill time with in the airport. deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Clear dark amber, white head and some minimal lacing. Aroma is floral, citrus and pine. Taste is sharply bitter to start followed with a nice bready malt backbone. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Reminds me a bit of a rye IPA; solid brew. One2remeber (253) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Light brown, deep amber hue. White head, adequate.
Root beer, sarsaparilla.
