Sweetwater Brewing 420 Pale Ale

Sweetwater Brewing Co.’s Sweetwater 420 Pale Ale poured  light amber out of the tap with a moderate white head.  The nose was light and piny, with hints of citrus.

Sweetwater 420 Pale Ale opened with a moderate pine/citrus hop start that sweetened as the malts came in to play.  There was a slightly soapy aftertaste (maybe the glass, but doubtful) that threw off the fade. 

Sweetwater 420 Pale Ale manages to hit all the points needed to be considered a pale ale without doing anything exceptional.  That said, given the typical tap selection in Nashville, it wasn’t long before I’d ordered a second pint.
