Pours orange clear and bubbly with an off white head that fades quickly to a bubbled coating and then nada. Aroma is somewhat sweet and bready malts. Quite malty taste with a pleasant bready sweetness and a mild noble hop finish that has a touch of bitterness. Highly drinkable.

Nothing earth-shattering, but smooth and rich and drinkable. Pours bright orange, no real head to speak of, medium carbonation. The aroma is butter and mild vanilla, the flavor is creamy, mildly sweet, and clean. Sierra Nevada doesnít make bad beer, but this is among their least.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out herbal notes, some grassy notes and toasted bready malt. Flavour brings out bready malts and herbal notes. Pretty bland, but clean and drinkable. Itís okay, but very meh.

This is a pretty decent take on an amber lager. It is maybe a hair too sweet but not a disaster or anything. Itís a little cloudy w/ a foamy white head and lace in rings. There is a slightly piny hop note but itís mostly raisin-like malt. This is a full bodied brew and slightly sticky; I kind of wish it were a bit lighter. It finishes w/ a touch of bitterness and some grainy malt character. Iíd say this is serviceable but not a home run.

Bottle @ BBQ. Amber in color with white foam. As expected, a good bready malt character and some toasty malts as well. Light floral hop note, some baked apple ester, and a little bit of brown sugar. Kind of grainy for my tastes, but itís not bad. Kind of bitter on the finish...okay.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A interesting mix of hay and cookie dough with hints of caramel and floral hops. A clear copper color with an off-white head. Sweet but not cloying, a touch of honey but enough hop bitterness to balance it. Not bad.
