Really did not enjoy this beer. I actually poured it out. I NEVER pour a beer out. I just could not drink it. Gross! LOL

Pours into a pilsner a pale light golden with a thinner bone white head atop with good carbonation.Toasted bready notes in the nose with some lingering leafy hops,pretty delicate aromas.The palate is great for the style with pizza crust and mild sweetness with quite a smack of herbal hops that are pretty assertive and lingering.I like the hops on the palate and it goes down pretty easy,a good 4th of July warm weather beer.

Appears filtered golden colored body with a bright white head fine speckled lacing. Aroma crisp hop notes including citrus, dank qualities, and herbal fresh cut grass light biscuit malt base. Flavor is bitter and brash but is balanced by the delicate two row and pilsener malts, punch of dank herbal grassy hops really does well in this beer. Mouthfeel finishes bone dry easy drinkability what more can one ask for in an accessible craft beer pils?

Take Two is a deep gold-yellow color, on the translucent side due to a mild haze. The head is a white one that caps at about half a finger. Retention is moderate and lace is a mix of spotting and patching in equal moderation.
Some dust and grass with a touch of pepper, some apple and a mildly lemony note greet the nose up front. It goes lightly grainy but leans more toward bread while a bit of perfume eases in.
The taste follows suit though it goes a bit grainier in the middle. It evens out with the aroma in that it's a bit stronger. Hoppiness is easy, herbal and grassy notes balancing with earth and a very light tartness while a slight sweetness keeps underneath.
The body is light but almost fuller than expected with a firm crispness and a smoothness that keeps up almost to the end. Graininess takes away from the cleaner aspects, but not exceedingly.

poured into a 16 oz jar glass...be burley

rich, metallic golden

biscuity with a slight earthy hop nose

bready and slightly musty with a dry bitter (almost tinny) finish

thin and classically "lager-y" with little to no residual sweetness

a liitle too metallic for my tastes, but im going to give this another shot sometime based purely on reputation

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a sweet grass and grain aroma that is pretty good.
Appearance- This looks like a Heineken(without the skunky) aroma, has a nice white head.
Taste- Pretty hoppy, had some peppery spice tossed in, Ok for me but not an incredible flavor
Palate- A light to moderate bodied brew with moderate carbonation, has a nice crisp finish.
Overall- Not bad, but I would rate this pretty average.

12 oz bottle. Hazy straw gold with decent white head and lacing. Light sweet pils malt light pastry dough and a wonderful Saaz spiciness. A mild lemony note. Taste is quite good. Clean malt body with an excellent hop profile that is decidedly American in its aggressiveness. Still balanced quite well and exceptionally drinkable. A great quaffer as it is thirst quenching and clean. Feel is spot on with good carbonation and supple fluidity to the swallow. Superb drinkability and sessionability. Well done SweetWater, another solid American pils in the hop
mold of Prima Pils.
