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.

From memory (2011 version, I think). Bottle. Citrusy and seriously piney. Responsible for starting my love of good beer. Subsequent reincarnations just as good. 2012 version on draft in Queens NYC even better.

Pours a nice copper color with white head. Citrus, pine, and some straw notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. I’m also picking up a flowery note here and there. Very good, very complex.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (28:-). Fruktig och humlig, söt med en del alkoholtoner, grapefrukt och tallbarr, medelfyllig. Avslutningen är rejält torr och besk.

Light brown pour on draft at xfinity live. Hop centric aroma accompanied by malt, wheat, floral arrangements, and light citrus, probably orange peel. Taste is mostly hop, rye bread, malt. Clean and well rounded. Very nice. Thought it was an APA

Tap at O’Connells. Pours clear amber with an off white head. Fresh fruity hops aroma, some grass. Fruity hops, caramel flavor, nice and fresh.

På flaska från systemet. Bärnstensfärgad med en liten skumkrona. Doftar blommigt sött. Härlig blommig smak med ett sött inslag av honung som avrundas med en perfekt beska.

Bottle. Pours amber with a fluffy off-white head and tons of lacing. The aroma is mainly pine. The taste adds some caramel notes and sweet citrus on the back end. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth with a syrupy undertone. -- This particular bottle is leftover from a few months ago from the 2013. It’s still great but, not as fresh as the others I’ve had. I didn’t rate it until now but I’ve had a bunch of fresh ones. Classic SN brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia 355ml, ordinata su birraland e bevuta a casa. Ambrata con bella schiuma persistente. IPA ottima, luppolatura da manuale!

Head could maybe be some bigger, but holds good. Good sticky to the glass. Earthy and grassy hops, caramel. Good bitterness. Not bad to find on a holiday where you expect no beers will be good enough to drink more as once. Even better i found it at the first regular supermarket we entered.
