Bottle @ RVA 22nd. Pale yellow with thin head. Smells skunky- which I actually like. Not terrible but not great.

Bottled as Session Lager at 4.5%. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of bread, malt, rye, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of rye, barley, bread, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 pack of bottles drunk 6/28/14 and onwards
The reason I know the date I had this is because I posted on Facebook, "Early candidate for beer of the Summer." And I’ll maintain that very much so. Sierra Summerfest 2014 wasn’t its best year (certainly wasnt the worst, but still had a lot of resin and breadiness) so this one was an easy go-to. Similar to Jabby Brau in the malt/body department, being very nicely attenuated but still with enough texture to balance the hops. This one is certainly less hoppy than Jabby Brau (and most craft brewed lagers) but still has a light bitterness and some herbal-pepper notes that do just enough to balance but leave a focus on the delicious malt. Not quite creamy, as that would imply too sweet and heavy a texture, but just the exact amount of malt chewiness and depth of flavor (brown bread, baguette, light sourdough). Delicious. And of course appreciated by no one on this damned site. I hate you all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light grainy malt aroma. Solid pale yellow but with a slight haze. A quick bubbly white head but doesn’t last long. Taste is slight grain and lemon zestiness in background. Has a light tart finish that is refreshing.

If the macro lagers tasted like this, I’d be more apt to drink them. Crisp, soft carbonation, slightly sweet, corn, wheat, and a hop presence that is nice. Easy drinking, great for drinking multiples.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Yep.... Aroma and flavor are the same.
The flavor is corn, mild sweet grain with a mild grassy hop. Light body with mild bitterness. Body is on the watery side. Well, the brewery nailed the style BUT.... producing a macro tasting lager for a craft market? I enjoy this breweries more creative offerings.
