Review – Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale
I am not sure why I love this beer so much, but I do, and was fortunate enough to get another sample from my dear friends at Sweet Water Brewing Co. in Atlanta, GA. Is it always 4:20 at Sweetwater? My guess is it always is.
Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale – 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. 5.2% abv.
Appearance: Light, sunny gold. A wee bit of froth at the top.
Aroma: A light amount of hops and malt, and other fresh smelling grains.
Taste: Light refreshing crisp hop flavor, lemon zest, and a touch of spicy malt. Finishes with a small amount of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Thirst quenching. Not to thick and not too thin.
Overall: A very complex ale in the name of pale. I would drink at least a six pack in a session, take this to the beach, and have it as a stand by beer for cooking.
