3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good staple beer, a good pine taste to it, and addition it has a slight citrus flavor as well. Not my favorite from Sierra Nevada but a good one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden colour, not too pale, slightly hazy. Very sparse head, little retention. Not too intense hoppy aroma with a touch of honey. Balanced hops in the taste, which kick-in all the way to the back of the mouth and stay there. Strong carbonation with little bubbles.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Clear amber with small aerated white head. Not a strong aroma but has some honey, pine and fresh bread. Honey, pine and bread in the taste as well, with some accompanying light lemon zest as well. Dry and bitter finish. Not bad but I would love to try this fresh in the US as I think it may have suffered during the shipping to Australia.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED AND SAMPLED ON 06/30/09:- Haven’t had this in about a year or more, and was on sale at Publix for $6.99. Wanted to drink and review this in the privacy of my own home since I don’t think I ever really bought a 6’er of this. Usually only had it out at a bar, club, or festival. Basically, was as I remembered....pretty much an average beer. It has good flavor at the start, mostly hoppy but seems a little watery or just a little off-balanced towards the hops. The aftertaste is both bitter from the hops, but also has a "mass-produced swillish taste"....kind of hard to explain. Had to downgrade this a couple points from my original review. Trying to buy some "economy beer" every now and then, but wishing I spent an extra 2-3 bucks for something I enjoy more.
.................................................. may be one of the most widely distributed micros out there. If at a bar, club, restaurant, etc. and given a choice between typical domestic, corona, heinekin, and Sierra Nevada....I’ll get the Sierra Nevada almolst every time! This is actually a little bitter for an american pale ale, something near a IPA, but if you try Sierra’s IPA not as bitter as that. Has a golden color, decent amount of carb and head. A bit on the heavier side and leaves a slight metallic aftertaste, but a good overall beer.
