This isnt a bad pils......just an average summertime brew to relax with in the heat.

Draft. Much better than I remember--very rich flavor coming out of its pale malt with flavorful hops framing perfectly. Tough to categorize this rich, malty pale beer--the hop character makes me think this is a sort of Dortmunder Export.

(Bottled on 3/7/03) Excellent head and lacing. Nose is hop forward. Light to medium in body. Restrained hoppiness. Nice hop finish to an otherwise malty beer. I liked this beer better when it was more of a pils than a helles.

Sierra Nevada brews a beer without a hop assault. Made to be lighter for summer and it works. A good complex lager with lemon notes and a decent amount of hops for a lager. Bottom line is its meant to be a summer beer and if you dont like summer seasonal beers in general this will not impress you.

Cleap deep yellow appearance with a large white head. Smells and tastes primarily of apples, with small hints of citrus and maple syrup. Aroma is not as strong as most lagers, and the taste is quite smooth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep golden color with an amber undertone and a medium thick white creamy head with good lace. Slightly sweet yet sour lemony aroma. Sweet lemony flavor with good hoppy accents and a slightly hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied and slightly dry.

Very similiar to their pale ale as far as taste goes. Typical California beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Of all the Sierra Nevada beers I’ve had, this one is the only halfway decent one. It is a light colored lager with a hop flavor that will surprise you. There is nothing spectacular about it. It tastes very simmilar to Samuel Adams Boston Lager.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very bland, boring lager. Some grassy hop profile, but otherwise unremarkable.
