A: A nice gold/yellow color with a good amount of transparency, a tiny off white head at the top, leaves a tiny bit of lacing around the glass as you drink this one

S: Bready Malts, slight hints of citrus and caramel is present as well.

T: A good chew from the malts on this one, the sweetness is very present as well as the breadyness, well balanced.

M: Medium bodied, a low amount of carbonation.

O: A good chill brew from SweetWater, very well balanced and easy drinking as well.

This is the first offering I've tried from Sweetwater, had on tap at Taco Mac. It's a decent pale ale, but not my favorite. Decent hop and malt mix, but not quote as robust of a flavor as I'd like. Good looking beer dark golden-brown color. Not a huge fan overall.

Bottle -> Wine Glass

A: Slightly hazy orange-amber in color, bright white 3/4" head which dissipates quickly, minimal spotty lacing.
S: Chocolate, malt, musty hops
T: Floral hops with a decent malty undertone, hops are certainly not the focal point and are not over-bearing. Not much else.
M: Surprisingly light, nice CO2, satisfying.
O: I was expecting a lot more or a hop-punch with this one. Overall, easy drinker and would go good with food. Nothing exciting.
