Sweetwater Motor Boat

12oz bottle from a sixer from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. $7.49 for the sixer I think.
First beer that I have drunk in nearly six weeks!
Pour is a somewhat thin looking amber/reddish orange that looks surprisingly carbonated with lots of small bubbles rising. Head is thin and fades very quickly.
Aroma seems very strongly hop based.
Hops are upfront but fade quickly. There is a lack of malt backbone which makes this feel very one dimensional. It’s particularly dry as well and essentially this drinks exactly like a thin, Irish red.
DREADFUL example of an ESB (and it’s a crime that it is characterized as one), and on top of that not a very interesting beer either. It lacks body in the extreme and is nowhere near the malty monster than ANY kind of ESB should be. Disappointing that Sweetwater has done a bit of a half-assed job with this one.
