Sweetwater Brewery Guide Beer

What the brewers say

Guide Beer is a lager—crisp, refreshing.

What our panel thought

A subtle and somewhat delicate aroma of sweet tropical fruit and floral botanicals. Its somewhat muddled and slightly husky malt profile, with aspects of biscuit and corn coupled with a mineral-like dryness, seemed to strip any subtleties of flavor and left it coming across thin and watery.

What our editors thought

Light bready grain and floral hops in the nose gives this light lager more character than some, but on the tongue it's as easy drinking as easy drinking gets. An unchallenging yet well-constructed beer that disappears in your glass, both figuratively and literally.
