12 oz bottle

pours a clear copper color, with foamy off-white colored head that fades. aroma is biscuity malt. more of the same in the taste - a bit bready. not really much hop flavor, but does have some bitterness to balance out the malt. medium body and carbonation.

Had this on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Louisville, my ninth review of a Sierra Nevada offering. Call me old fashioned but I think I prefer my bitters to be...you know, bitter. This one is very mild, and the fruitiness wasn't really welcome either. The color is an orangish-amber, not a bad look. It's all right, just not my favorite.

Bottle from the mix pack. Pours deep hazy copper colored with a one finger white to off white head. Aroma of characteristic SN yeast, some light bitterness, bready malt, straw. Flavor is malty to the core, bready with some fruits in there like figs and apples, clean crisp finish of straw and sugars. Light bodied, crisp, medium plus carbonation. Not bad, easy drinking, seems on style, but a style that doesn't excite me that much. One of the better in the style for me though.

Collab with New Glarus, from the Beer Camp Across America variety twelvepack.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Nearly clear amber with a two finger thick offwhite head which receded to even surface foam and some spotty lacing.

s: Mild light fruit.

t: Same as nose with medium bitterness over a smooth bready malt base. Dry to bitter finish. Malt gradually leans more towards caramel and becomes more evident as it warms.

m: Smooth medium, quite a bit of carbonation tingle.

o; Nice and smooth, but a bit too fruity and bitter for my English Bitter preference, although that dissipates towards the end probably due to warming. Might be better served closer to the English standard of 55-60 rather than around 50 as I did due to storing it in a beer fridge set to 48.

Aggressive head prevent pours much at a time. Golden bitter looking beer. Tight aroma, probably smothered somewhat by the huge head. Herbal hops, soft malt.
Good English ale flavor. Herbal, earthy hops that leave a long bittering. Shot of warmth in the gut furthers shows it is big for style - adds okay flavors but it is not longer a classic bitter. A little astringency (briefly) but just a lot of hop flavor and a soft but apparent malt base. A soft feel but too carbonated.
So many good pieces but several that take away. Still a worthwhile ale.
