3.74/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
L: yellow ... pale yellow; about 1-inch head of white foam, pretty solid chunk of a head but little lacing; crystal clear ... in fact, might be the clearest beer i've ever seen.
S: grain; weak grain; slowly start to detect some very light, sweet malt ... definite sweetness, the biscuit/bread sweet
T: spice ... the spicy hops really bite up front, very noble pils-like; just a slight sweetening on the back end, not overly so but a nice little malt finish ... grain also shows up on the finish, light corn almost or maize
F: full carbonation, solid construction ... not watery or too light
O: what you'd expect from Sierra Nevada -- a solid pilsener, plenty of spice with a little sweetness that shows through here and there, about as drinkable a brew as one could find. also an obvious choice for a gateway beer. the alcohol kind of sneaks up on me with this one, which seems odd ... i'd like it more at 4.7% ABV or so, but hey ... i'll gladly take this one as is.
of all the summer pilsener/kolsch options here in texas, i'm not sure where this one ranks. but it's a can't-go-wrong choice because it's mighty good.
