Another nice looking Sierra beer. Pours a bright and light gold color with a big bright white head. Good lacing too.
Aromas are spicy, floral, and doughy. Pretty typical pilsner nose.
Taste is grainy, doughy, spicy, with light creamy malt flavors. Finish is crisp, dry, floral and somewhat bitter.
Mouthfeel is smooth and full, on the heavy side, but it works here.
Overall, a pretty good Pils. A bit heavy, but it's certainly quite flavorful.
Serving type: bottle

On-tap at Taps Brea
This beer was brewed by the Taps brewing team at Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp. It's a pils that makes (generous) use of New Zealand hop varieties.
A: The pour is clear golden straw in color with a couple of fingers of white head.
S: A very nice citrus hop aroma is immediately noticeable. Big time lemon and lemon zest with some nice grapefruit. A bit of a pale malt aroma, perhaps some pine, and a little bit of yeast.
T: Starts off with an almost candied lemon flavor. A hint of soap along with the intense citrus flavors. A fair amount of pine which gives a nice bitterness to the beer. Mild bread and pale malts.
M: Medium in body and perhaps low-medium in carbonation.
O: At first I thought this was some random German beer they had as a guest tap, but this was quite nice. Taps stepping it up with three pretty solid lagers on this trip.
Serving type: on-tap
