Tap @ Black Bottle. Called Ale 20. Pours a clear golden yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly floral, a bit grainy, light lemon, slightly spicy aroma. Clean, light flavor with some hay and grainy notes. Not super exciting but easy to drink. Probably a good session ale.

Old Chico is another example of an overall comment I have of the entire Sierra Nevada portfolio of beers: Technically clean, but lacks depth of flavor. Sierra is the sixth largest brewery in the U.S. and its mass production level prevents it from delivering exceptional beers in any category. We owe Sierra a thanks for pioneering the craft beer business, but unfortunately, its beers have become more macro than micro.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a light aroma of biscuit, wheat, and pale malt. The flavor is sharp wheat and pale malt up front, leading to a mildly bitter middle and mostly crisp finish over a medium-light body.

Pours a straw color, lots of white carbonation with a good head. Cereal on the nose, and lots of grains in the flavor. An ok beer. Not amazing, but refreshing.
