SweetWater Road Trip 12oz into pint. Pours yellow, like a bit of real beer into a glass of water.. Has a small 1/4" white head that doesnt stick around. Smells of steamed veggies and other adjuncts in the corn department. Tastes like a adjunct lager, honestly one of the lower grade ones. A touch of pale and crystal malts, and a bit of noble presence. This is another that I wont be getting again from SW, these summer creations just aren't up to par with the rest of the others. Overall, if you get it from a pal, or an extra in a trade its worth a shot, but if you see it in the store and are pondering on purchasing, your best bet is to grab whatever is sitting beside it, even if its a pack of swill in my opinion. Cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, corn-yellow coloring with a ton of slow carbonation in the body, and a fluffy, dense, small bubbled, white head. Aromas of citrus sweet, bubblegum, toasted grains, subtle herbal notes, and some nutmeg and clove spice. Flavors are sweet and herbal forward, with a subtle cracker and bread backbone, and lemongrass, clove, and all-spice highlights, with subtle tart citrus characteristics. The herbal tones overpower a bit, and there is subtle hops bitterness that enhances that imbalance. Light, effervesced body, that moves close to astringent as the beer leaves your palate. The aftertaste is lemon-citrus and heavy spice, still. Dry, again almost astringent, finish.
