excited to see a SN seasonal ready for the 80 degree weather today! Grabbed a sixer
A- pours a straw yellow color with minimal head. Lacing remains on sides as the light head retreats. The foamey head is fluffy
S- a light and malty scent arises. Bread like yeast is combined with lemon and grassy scents. The profiles combine to create an inviting brew of summer time themes
T- as crisp as it gets. A light malt taste is surrounded with slightly spicey hops. There is some sweet citrus taste as well. The taste overall is light on flavor, yet thin and tasty
M- light bodied, crisp, and carbonated
D- Overall, this is a very drinkable summertime brew. Sierra Nevada provides a light combination of malt and spiced hops to create the pefect brew to mow the lawn to (yup, I mowed to a couple of these). You can definitly have several of these while embracing the omcoming heat!

Picked up at Trader Joe's in April 2014.
A- A blonde, or pale golden beer with perfect transparency. It's as clean-looking as spring water. Heavy carbonation surges upwards aggressively and help maintain the persistent head that remains from the finger-thick post-pour peak.
S- Has that characteristic sweet malt thickness that I find in many Sierra Nevada beers. It's almost like cornbread if I'd say, although I don't want to imply a corn adjunct was added, only that that's what the aroma reminds me of. Spicy floral hops are underneath this initial sweet aroma.
T- Initially sweet and perhaps offering some bread, crackers and/or biscuits, floral hops emerge toward the backend of my palate.
M- As mentioned before, starts sweet but quickly becomes dry and crisp. At the finish, the hops provide a subtle bitterness that is easy to not notice since the beer is so easy to sip without putting much thought towards the taste.

Poured from the can into a Turbinator style glass.
A: It is clear and an active brew with a two finger rocky, white head. Lacing is minimal, legs are not present due to moderate ABV. Crystal clear, really nice translucence.
S: Typical lager smells, a little lemony lemongrass, earthy yeast and mild malts with a little of the pale euro funk.
T: Lager smooth, hair euro-skunk due to that classic hop profile. Lemongrass, earth, skunk, Irish cream at the edges. Bitter at swallow causes pleasant dryness.
M: Moderate and pleasant in every way. Slightly creamy hit and then slick on palate leading to a lightly bitter finish.
O: Yeah, this is really darned good. Every part of this contributes to a whole that is more than the sum. A very good expression of the light Czech/lager style.
