This beer is absolutely great, no doubt one of my true favorites. I have been craving one of these for awhile now. The taste is very smooth, though a wee bitter at first but finishes smooth and even a bit sweet. The appearance is lovely and a bit cloudy. It just looks like a fine beer, and that it is. Probably the more popular of the Sierra Nevada brews, and for good reason. The smell isn't outstanding but its not bad, it just isn't too prominent to me.

Overall, this will continue to sit near the top of my favorite beers. A good beer for a lovely sunny fall day.
