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

From 12oz bottle, single cost around $1.50 at Trader Joes

Aroma: hay, floral, herbs, vanilla,

Appearance: pale, clear, white foam,

Taste: lightly bitter, light sweetness,

Palate: light body, slick feel, average carbonation,

Overall: Not a bad lager. Very smooth. Easy to digest and drink. Nice hops and malt. Crystal clear/clarity. Good with food, but Im not sure why Im not enjoying this as much as I feel like I should be. Very well made and no flaws, just nothing special. A nice, easy lager with some hops.

Draft @ the source. A very light yellow b2 finger solid white head. Big bubbles. Simcoe aroma. Pine, walnut and lemon peel. Good carnation bite. Lemon and orange and orange soda. Excellent mouthfeel. Lacks in bitterness and the mouthfeel is overwhelming for a 5% beer.
