Boulder Sweaty Betty
As part of the mixed case I picked up of Boulder Beer, I tried a bottle of Sweaty Betty. The beer pours a golden color with a very loft and frothy white head that lingers for awhile. I poured the beer in its correct manner, with the glass upside down on the bottle and flipping it over. The aroma consists of wheat, lemon, yeast, grass, weeds, and fresh grass clippings. The taste is yeasty and wheaty right up front with a slight sweetness but it is dry as well. There is a nice lemon zest associated with the beer and a slight peppery and grassy finish. The alcohol content is 5.9% ABV. This was a very nice blonde ale that has a good amount of citrus flavors, nice earthy tones, and a yeasty sweetness.
