3.74/5 rDev -1.1%
Pint on Tap at Cigar City Tampa FL for 5$
Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.
Smell - Hops, malts, noble hops, lemons
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and hops. There is also some noble hops and some lemon zest and some grassy notes. It also has a breadiness to it and a hint of ginger. It ends with a floral grainy aftertaste.
Overall – Quite refreshing and very drinkable, Sierra Nevada rarely disappoints. Not something I'd rush out to buy again, but still glad I tried.

Golden straw colored with moderate white head with good retention. Earthy, floral aroma with light citrus. Balanced sweetness with a bright, sticky floral bittering and light biscuit flavors. Moderate pilsner and hop linger. Crisp but slightly heavy feel.
I really think this is quite a heavy beer but the flavor is easy going and fairly complex. Even though it’s a low abv imperial, I really couldn’t drink more than 1 of these at a time.

Clear dark gold colour with a small, white head. Fair to poor head retention.
Sweet pilsner malt with an interesting herbal hop character. Nice.
Sweet malt with almost honey notes. Moderate bitterness. Light herbal character. Okay.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp.
A nice beer but nothing particularly special.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color pilsner with a nice big white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light hoppy fruity notes with light floral malt base. Taste is also dominated by loads of some light floral malt base with some medium residual sugar notes and some light dry hoppy notes with light fruity undertones. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed though not imperial in any way.

Clear and bright, pale hay color. Great bubbling, great head and residual foam. A little lacing too. This is a great looking pilsner!
Floral and grassy hop aroma dominate with some hay, unmalted barley, and lightly toasted water cracker backbone.
Bitter flower petals and some earthy grass hop bite grabs the tongue right away. The middle let some of the light cracker and hay like malt flavors mix with hops. The overall flavor and feel of this beer is crisp, bitter, bright, and refreshing. If you like hoppy pilsners, this beer is for you.

Pours a translucent dark yellow/light orange color. Small but sense white head. Cap and collar stick around throughout. Sticky lacing.
Cereal grains with a bunch of bright citrus hops.
Hops shine right through the weak malt backbone. Light bitter follow-through. Drinks about its stated ABV.
Lower but biting, crisp carbonation. Medium to medium-low mouthfeel.
Very drinkable/refreshing. Not sure where they get "imperial" from bring only 5.6%abv but enjoyed nonetheless. Thanks egrace84!
