Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale

Sweetwater Brewing Co

USA

Another hometown beer, brewed here in Atlanta, this is a pretty good beer overall, and what appears to be the flagship beer of Sweetwater Brewing....a good place to start if you want to try this brewery's work. It had a crisp taste, a sweet start, and a light yet noticeable hoppy finish (not as bitter as a true Pale Ale, but that's fine by me), and it left a clean aftertaste. It didn't smell aromatic, only because I tried it at the Marietta Pizza Co (where it's kept on tap), so the only smell in the air was pizza, but every other characteristic pleased me. I think I'll try more of the Sweetwater product in the future.
