notes from phone
on tap at Gator's Dockside 1-3-11

A- Straw yellow, very small, film-like head

S- Very much pilsner-like, maybe a little bit of sweetness but that could just be a little hope from the name

T- Crisp clean sweet malts carry through entire beer, not a whole lot of action going on here. Not like there's some subtle flavors playing around, just not a whole lot going on...

M- Light and watery. Some bite from the carbonation but it's not the worst mouthfeel I've every experienced

D- Dumbed down version of the style... I'd try any other swamphead before this one as I do tend to enjoy their brews

I love to support local breweries. I have sampled other varities offered by Swamp Head and has been very satisfied. Got this one during happy hour at Cody's Steakhouse in Gainesville. I was served in a the typical pint glass.

Appearance - very thin with a hint of pale yellow and a watered down look at the top. Almost lighter than a Corona.

Smell - a very timid nose with some honey and orange blossom notes.

Taste - Again, thin, mild honey sweetness and minimal hopping. Very one dimensional.

Mouthfeel - smooth because of the taste but the dull sweetness gets to you after a while.

I would say this is a good session beer but I don't even think it falls in those parameters. I would just stick to their Big Nose IPA, and Midnight Oil Stout. That is where the flavor is.

Poured light yellow, probably straw colored. White, scanty head that didn't last too long. A touch of corn and light grains with a hint of metallicness, pears, and grass, but all of this is extremely light. Flavor is very hard to distinguish. Rather bland and not much to the beer. Not offensive, but nothing really standing out either.

A-very pale light gold, frothy white head

S-smells like honey and grass. not too strong

T-comes in with a fresh grassy taste with just a slight hint at hops. ends with a decent taste of bitter honey. this forms a long lasting after-taste. its fairly simple.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a crisp finish

O-swamp head, i've heard much about them but i'm guessing this isn't their top beer. this is a lawn mower beer, but not a great one. there are no negative tastes but nothing to make it stand out either.
