look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsner glass. Love the almost-hidden goat on the bottle art...

Appearance: Poured a clear golden straw color with moderate, mellow carbonation floating to the top. Very clear transparency with this beer. Bone-white foamy 2-finger tops the beer and slowly dies down to a coat of film on top. Splotches and rings of lacing adorn the class in classic Sierra Nevada style.

Smell: Fresh scents of barley, some cracker-like malt smell and subtle notes of honey, and also some spiciness from the very European nature of the hops. Also some hints of light fruit, floral aromas, and citrus. Very nice, fresh, and still laid back. A spring beer to the nth degree. So good... but not entirely surprising for a spring seasonal.

Taste: Fresh bread and yeast flavors from the malt on the finish and some flashes of grassy hops. Also blended with some citrus tastes and a little bit of spicy bite in the forefront of the palate. Pretty balanced, but closer to the hoppy side of the spectrum without being overly bitter. Nice bracing bitterness in the finish to round out the flavor.

Mouthfeel: About right for SN's beers. Medium-light in consistency and body, well-placed carbonation gives the beer a bubbly but full feel in mouth. Well-balanced and complements both the hop and malt flavors in the beer. Refreshing, crisp, and clean. Slightly drying in the finish. A little grainy toward the finish, but not detracting from the flavor at all.

Drinkability: I would totally drink this all spring long. Light, refreshing, and still full of flavor. Nice balance.

Kind of surprising for me since Sierra Nevada are known for hoppier beers, but this was definitely worth the buy. Maybe not the most well-known of their brews or well-liked, but still worthy of trying and enjoying.
