UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 A real honest beer you can enjoy several of in any season. Sierra Nevada has a nice smell of Northwestern hops and beautify cooper appearance that invites you to start drinking. The body is medium to light, caramel sweet and hopped just right, kind of like an English pale ale, more floral and grapefruit than bitter.

Poured into a SN imperial pint glass. Has a golden-reddish appearance with foamy head. Smell of earthy hops and sweetness. Initial taste of grapefruit with tiny amount of pine followed with a clean sweet finish. Definitely the standard barer for this style.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Plain hoppy aroma. Nice balanced taste with hoppy tones and a creamy feel.

355ml bottle. It's a classic, had this a lot over the years but never rated it. Super citrus and refreshing. Not much else to say really. One of the pioneers.

Flaska från SB. Dags att rate:a. Klar bärnstensfärgad med vitt fluffigt skum. Doften är brödig, kakdeg, lite blommig och örtig. Lätt kropp, något torr. Nära doften i smaken.

I am very displeased by this beer. It may have been because of the import time and long time in the bottle. Beer looks golden, almost no head, very quickly dropped. Aroma was malty and honey sweet, no sign of citrus or cascade AT ALL! No hops aroma whats so ever. Beer tasted very mildly. Kept on the balance between bitterness and maltiness. But nothing special. Aftertaste was bitter. I will not get another one, unless fresh or bought in u.s. store. Until then, this is my score.

Big thick lasting head, stands like an ice cream. Medium hopped, fruity, raspberry, spicy. Great balance, sweet, getting bitter near the finish, lasting finish with citrus notes. Top!

Orange gold with little white head. Aroma is fruity floral hops, melon and grape sugar. Taste is somewhat bitter and citrussy sour. Smooth, even a little watery, but good to drink. Overall good.

Bouteille 35 cl - mousse trés éphémère, couleur orange foncé, grosses bulles, odeur de fruits, fruits de la passion, goût: fruité avec une belle notion de fruit de la passion, légérement sucrée, finale séche sur l’amertume très légére

Bottle. Pours golden amber. Aromas of citrus, pine and sweet malts. Taste is light sweet and bitter. Good easy drinking beer.
