3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: pours light golden ale with excellent clarity. Single finger loose head dissipates to nada. No lacing.
S: smells like sweetened malts and hints of noble hops. Very earthy, yet subtle. Nice.
T: grainy, earthy, hints of florals. Quaffable.
M: medium body with middle of the road carb.
O: good example of the style. Nice and rounded with great potential as a session ale.

I’m currently rating every SN brew I’ve ever had in one clean sweep.
I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

A bright bock beer. Not my favorite from Sierra Nevada, but its a solid addition to their output. Honey, bread, with some grassy hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 batch. Aroma is sweet, some hops and malt but something sweeter, like honey. Appearance is a nice gold. Taste is like scotch ale, sweet malt, honey, a hop bitterness. Palate is average, not too sharp and decently thick. Overall, for a two-year old beer, this is still pretty solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The head is ok, the body orange-brown. It smells a bit dry, alcoholic, dusty, fruity-creamy. taste is creamy, less hoppy, aromatic, mild but yeasty, interesting. Ok but this one was aged, so I would like to drink it again in a fresh Version. 12/11/12/11/12/11

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, en aning smörig med örtiga toner. Lite för kraftfull beska som skymmer de fruktiga smakerna.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not sure about this beer. Golden colour, minimal lacing. Malted rounds, pilsner like hops and some sort of honey and minor cloying agent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Dark golden with a 1/2" thick head that vanished very quickly. No lacing at all. It looked like I was drinking apple juice.
S - Intense sweet honey malt. Some caramel, bread, pear , and fig aromas come through as it warms.
T - Honey, malt, heavy caramel, sweet grain, with a touch of bitterness to round it off. Not as much hop as I expected. Would have like a little more to bring it home.
Smooth medium body. A little unbalanced but a very enjoyable brew.
