finally cold in Florida , picked up the tacklebox from Sweetwater Brewing a sampler pack we havent tried before to go along with chili,homemade bread this evening.

poured into a malt glass strong fine carbo. with heavy lacing as swirled
settles quickly appears natural carbonation so far almost amber appearance.

nose- cascade hops and another i can't ID citrusy nose

described on the bottle as a wreck between a 300 year old Belgian style and a pompous American hop collision
I have grown to like the Sweetwater Brews they have continued to Impress me and and in price range for the average working guy who cant afford the $6-12 a bottle craft beer err i like to call them microbreweries still.. you want to steer bud drinkers? this is how ..good flavor ale you'll purchase again and it's not junk
i give them a 4 across the board

Nice work and cheers to the brewmaster

A - Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a finger of near white head. good retention, fantastic lacing.

S - Minimal caramel sweetness, biscuity malts, lighter grassy/floral hops. Smells very fresh and refreshing. Maybe even a hint of grapefruit.

T - Light citrus and grassy hops, very very clean drinking. A bit of clovey spice.

M - Light bodied, certainly well carbonated, great drink ability.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Best If Enjoyed By: 02/24/14.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, yellow-orange body with just over an inch of white foam. Lacing is light on the descent.

Smell: Florals, pithy citrus fruits, predominately, with lesser hints of earthiness and even spearmint on a deep sniff. Underneath, a fairly soft scented, mild maltiness.

Taste: A light, soft taste of pale malts augmented by a lil' smidgen of wheat. Subtle sweetness. Soft breadiness. Citrusy, lightly floral with a thin, underlying earthiness. Medium-plus bitterness. The hop flavors recede, leaving a stone fruit taste with minor phenolic spicing on the soft, smooth finish and final kiss of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Better than expected!
