3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An incredibly full flavored lager from Sierra Nevada. This is one of my new favorite lagers; underrated in my opinion.

Light golden color, no head, bubbles sticking to the sides of the glass. Grassy, earthy aroma. Herbal hop flavor, bitter and somewhat dry into a lingering dry finish. Another winner from Sierra Nevada.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
nice golden color, slightly hazy, thin white head. some splotches of lacing left on the glass. aroma is fairly lemony and hoppy. fair amount of hops in the flavor and what i consider to be a grainy finish. definitely the hoppiest lager i can remember...interesting and unusual for the style.

Pours a pale golden yellow with no head or lace. Aroma is slightly malty. Citrus flavors with a little bitterness at finish. Nice summer lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like grass, taste like oranges yet still heavier than I would like for a summer brew but looks betty crocker perfect with good head and lacing.

A very nice summer brew. Refreshing and drinkable - not too heavy. Decent color, head and flavor. I'd definitely buy it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Their description and the other reviews say it all. The malt is smooth and immediately balanced by grassy, almost citrus hops with a bite. The head wasn't long lasting, but carbonation was just right, and the color was light amber and almost clear as far as seeing through it. Can't complain about this lager.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2007 This beer is a bright clear gold color with a nice white head. There is a nice hop aroma accompanied by a slight lemon aroma and some floral grassy notes. There is a sharp carbonation which gives a sense of acidity up front. Nice and clean tasting with a hop bite finish. This lager has a very clean bitterness from the hops. There is a nice amount of body, but it is still quite quenching. This clean beer is a vehicle for the hop aroma and bitterness that the brewers have seen fit to add.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice lighter lager, with a fine initial hop aroma and flavor. The tangy aftertaste lingers a bit too long and sits on the tongue. I'd rather have a pale ale.
