On tap: I didn’t think this was one of SN’s better offerings. Decent, but not outstanding, lager. A little chewy on the malt. I would guess this would be good with a brat. Soft mouthfeel.

Sierra has and should do a lot better than this. But i guess seeing how its a lager then expectations can’t be too high. try thier other stuff, its a lot better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Clear light gold color with small head. Aroma is lightly malted and slightly bitter. The taste is fresh light lemon, straw and slightly bitter but all of the flavors are mellowed. Why can;t a lighter beer have any head retention?

2003- Light golden color. foamy white head. Wheat, Malt, Water in the aroma. Doesn’t look like anything special. Really interesting for a lager... I can’t really identify what it is, it’s almost sour, with a little hop bite. Not bad, a nice lawnmower brew.

Gold Coloring. Little Head. An Average Lager. Wouldn’t Care to Have it Again. Some Hops there, Not my Favorite Style....Some Grass I would agree with SlikTork... "I’ve had better."

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2006 Auguest, 2004 Bottle - bought at Utobeer Market Stall on the Southwark Beer Tour. A bit too gassy for my taste. Hops are not to my taste either. The whole thing tastes just a bit too much of a mix of soap and metal to be pleasant. Shame - I’ve been enjoying Siera Nevada’s products, apart from the last two beers I’ve had. [1.8]
Sept, 2006 Grabbed this bottle in Sainsbury. I enjoyed it more than my first attempt two years ago - but the soapy hops, despite the citric notes, are not pleasant. It’s fairly pleasant initially, but those damned hops build and build to a sensory overload, and it starts to taste like drinking washing up liquid. [2.0]

Clear gold/yellow color, small white frothy head. Light dry, sweet and herbal hoppiness. Weak astringent type of Saazy hop flavor with a papery finish. Eh... nothing bad about it, just very light and unfulfilling.
