Bottle form Mane Liquor. Ehhhhh. Pours pissy clear yellow with a small and pathetic white head. Aroma of dull flowers, wet cardboard and not much else. Watery body, no flavour. Think I’ll stick to Nevada’s ales.

Hyvin vaalea, muistuttaa ulkoisesti hieman saksalaisia pilsnereitä. Tiheä, mutta ohut vaahtokerros. Miellyttävän hedelmäinen humalointi, jälkimaussa hieman sitrusta.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 4/4/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, cracker, bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pilsner style. All around well balanced flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

On tap @ Frankie’s Pizza. No denying this is a modern take on a classic style. Super clean and friendly and just the right hint of talcum powder and dusty minerals. Not enough daggy musty hops for the purists but there’s no doubt this will suit the Sydney market :)

A decent offering from Sierra Nevada. Good on a hot day as the name goes. Overall I’d say a nice gateway beer.

Bottle from mane liquor. Nice light golden pour. Aromas of grassy hops, honey and biscuit malts. Taste is super light with a herbal grassy hop finish. Solid stuff

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a pale golden color with a thin white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of light malt spicy hops and lemon. tastes of the same things but slightly muted. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Pretty bland for a Sierra Nevada beer to be honest. Decent for a craft pilsner though.

Above average but pretty dull for this brewer. Pale and watery with some pale ale hints.
