Poured from a bottle into my new Sierra Nevada Snifter
A-Pours and orange tinted golden yellow with a fizzy small bubbles white head that sits about 1/8th of an inch high. Lots of tinny bubbles floating up from the bottom keep the head a little fluffy for a while. As it dissipates it leaves thin sheets of scattered foamy lace.
S-Smells sweet and clean with a little bit of hoppyness. Mainly very sweet and some beady maltiness. Not very strong though.
T-Initial taste is clean mild bitter hops followed very quickly by malty sweetness. A little grassy character in there too all supported by a not distracting hop presence. Taste is simple yet refined. Theres a ton of flavor but its not overpowering by any means. This is a style I dont normally care for but this is done amazingly. No alcohol aparent in the slightest.
M-Consistency is very light but the higher carbonation makes it feel full and smooth. Very crisp clean and structured.
D-This is an extremely refreshing beer. I can see drinking this in the spring or summer. Another great everyday beer from SN
