Pours a pale golden color with a slight haze. Mostly wheat in the aroma. Taste is somewhat bland with a hint of wheat, but a metallic hoppy finish. Overall, it just seems thin, watery, and very dissappointing. Sweetwater has much better beers than this one.

Sweetwater Tavern is located just off of RT. 7, in Loudoun County, near the airport in northern Virginia. Located in the middle of sprawling nowhere, far far west of the District.

Anyway, Here's the review:

A - Translucent golden amber. The head is beige and thin, stays around for the duration.

S - Mild floral notes.

T - Hops and malt. More malt.

M - Smooth, lower carbonation.

D - Yeah sure. Why not.

For the category of beer, proclaimed as a light beer with a delicate hop finish, this beer lives up to the billing fine. Sorry this isn't a full review on each category:

This beer meets expectations as a light, mildly citrus-nose, light malt front with a little dry ending. I think it is a good offering for a lighter beer.
