I poured it into my glass, it gave me a nice golden color with a small foamy head. The smell has a citrus and some malt to it. The taste has a crisp malt backbone with a good cittus hop flavor to follow. Well balanced, mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good ale.

This was solid good beer. Nice golden creamy color and a lace that lingers. Smelled malty and crisp, a little citric, but not very strong. Taste was bready and malty, really nice dry hop finish though. Drinkable and good, perhaps nothing out of this world, but definitely worth a try.

SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, golden appearance, with powdery, white suspended particles throughout, some streaming bubbles, and decent lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up slight citrus, hops, and light malt. Taste is also mild- citrus, sweetness, hop oil, light malts, and low bitterness are all detected. Mouthfeel is light to medium and slick, and SweetWater 420 EPA finishes semi-dry, sweet, refreshing, and drinkable. Overall, this is very good.
