On tap @ Torpedo Room. Clear golden pour with a white head. Grape, bread, and grass on the nose. Quite dry. Some toast, wheat, and grain. Flavor is lightly sweet with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Lots of grape, wheat, bread, and cracker. A bit grainy. Meh.

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.

Small bottle from the shop in Yosemite village in the US. Golden / light orange body with a white head. Aroma and taste of wheat. Medium carbonation. Good drinkable beer. Nothing special. ***

From the can. Straw yellow w/ a white head. Grains and light biscuit. Some minor bitterness in the finish. Ok, but not great.

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.

Pours light cloudy yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma of honey, wheat, hay, barnyard, light spices. Taste is sweet with wheat and honey. Light bitterness in the finish. Lively carbonation, light and slick body.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Can... Poured pale, clear straw with a thick, frothy white head. Not much going on in the aroma here. Smooth, clean, very quaffable. Not a whole lot going on as far as hops. Some cracker-like grain and malts, wheated tones. Nice clean finish. A perfect lawn mower beer.
