So I was looking for new Brews at my store when I this beer. The label caught my eye. Its nice and simple with subtle details. I like the label design a lot. So when I saw this was a Sierra Nevada brew I was surprised. Once I read the label about how buying this beer would make me a good Samaritan, okay not really, but it does say that proceeds go to help rebuild The Abbey Of New Clairvaux. So naturally I wanted to help and I bought this beer :P
Lets get on with the review.
I have had this now on tap and in a glass so thats why I put on-tap. This beer comes out with lots of carbonation. I had to wait a while until it stopped effervescing. Once its done your left with a nice glassy lake like surface without any head to speak of. I was kind of worried that it was over-carbonated. The color of this beer is a nice medium brown with a hint of red. The beer smells kind of yeasty and bread like. The flavor is much the same. I'm not getting much fruit or any other flavors you would come to expect from this style of beer. The finish does have an ever so slight bitterness to it. However its so very slight and subtle as in barely there. There isn't much carbonation to this beer. So overall mouth feel is rater bland.
This beer is okay. I was expecting something with a little more flavor than what this has. I hate to end up ranking this as one of the lowest scoring beers since I started writing these but I have to be true. I still encourage you to pick one up and try. If you don't like it either just say to yourself that is was for a good cause.
Serving type: on-tap
