Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale represents a time honored tradition of brewing a special beer for the holiday season. There are generous portions of barley malts and fine whole hops of several varieties, creating a brew with a full, rich and hearty character.

laakus (106) - Nossebro, - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget, BB 25/10/2016. Amber appearance with a decent lasting foam. I quess this bottle hasn’t survived in the best way the trip overseas and then the Systembolagets way of keeping the beer, meaning that most of the aromas that should have been there has disappeared. Well, well, my nose can anyways feel som subtle piney aromas, not much citrus and that is pretty much it. Nice mouthfeel, well balanced with a lasting bitterness. A good and solid beer for the season.

SB MoS , flaska. Frisk arom som klart överlevt Sauronbolagets hantering. Bärnstensfärg. Fin vardagsIPA om den nu fanns att tillgå.

knasputte78 (608) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2016
Halvljus och grumlig. Trevlig frisk doft med fruktighet och lite tallbarr. Smaken är balanserad och trevlig lite för mycket beska för min smak ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
12 Fl oz bottle into shaker. Orange/copper beer with solid two finger head. Carbonation is constant and fine. Nose is subdued fruit toffees. Flat clean mouthfeel with aspirin bitter finish. Quite light and easy to drink, surprising given its ABV. Nice albeit one-dimensional. Of course it’s meant to be a Winter beer but here in Sydney it is 25 Celcius at 11pm so I’m drinking it straight out of the fridge. Probably better a little warmer.

Samuel214 (607) - SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2016
Flaska från SB. Mörkorange klar vätska med högt gulbeiget skum. Frisk doft av citrus, koriander, örter, selleri, tuggummi, blommor, färskt gräs. Åt det sötare hållet med en del maltighet undertill. Medelstor kropp. Frisk beska från början. Något torr. Inte lika mycket fruktighet som i doften, mer aggressiv i humlen. Maltigheten drar åt pilsnerhållet. En ganska lätt öl, men samtidigt med bett i. Välhumlad och trevlig.

foyle (395) - Wyoming, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass Appearance: pours a 3" pillowy off white head that falls very slowly and leaves abundant lacing behind. Color is cloudy reddish-amber. Aroma: strong pine and citrus dominate but there is an evident malt in the background. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, viscous and quite sticky with a quite dry finish. Flavor: fine balance between the hop notes with a bready-sweet malt. Overall: extremely well done. I am a rare IPA drinker but this one is definitely worth having.
