Bottle. Pours straw color with a ton head that dissipates to a thin lace. Aromas of grass and slight skunkiness. Flavors of sweet malt, corn, dry grass, lemon and bread. Mild hoppiness. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. Not terribly interesting.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white foamy head. Crisp and clean hoppy aroma. Nice fresh taste with just a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. OK but nothing special. Refreshing and fairly enjoyable.

Refreshing beer. Not as hoppy as most Sierra Nevada beer. Smooth and light with a slight bit of spicy hops, sweetness is the predominant taste. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
