a very good pilsener, true to its name its nice and frothy from the tap, with a little color to it for the style. smells and tastes like what i claims to be. there is a nice grassy hop complexion in the finish and a little more body than we usually get in the style without sacrificing refreshment. its a beer drinkers pils, thats for sure. very dry, with a longer finish too, more hops than normal, but thats just fine with me. a great all day session type beer for those who get bored with light beers. sierra nevada always has top tier seasonals, and this one is no slouch. is this bottled or canned? i have only seen it on tap

Had on tap @ Phish's Super Ball IX back in 2011. The beer wasn't the best I ever had, but it wasnt the worst. It poured clean and had a rich golden color to it. Unfortunately I had to have it out of a solo cup, but it didn't deter me from enjoying it. I wish it was available more often.

On tap at The Lark in East Northport, NY (last night, 10/30/13); pours crystal clear yellow color with a snow white 1 finger head that faded slowly and left decent spotty lacing.

Smells of sweet malt, grains, caramel, light floral hops and mild herbs; very malty overall and a non-hop beer aroma from SN which is unusual but good and par for the style.

Tastes like it smells with sweet malt, roasted grains, caramel, biscuit, floral hops, coriander and mild herbs; the finish is malty and almost like wet wheat bread, but tasty and par for the course.

Mouthfeel is light crisp and almost watery, with mild carbonation, a light body and a sweet malty aftertaste that trails off grainy and almost buttery flavor.

Nice beer and more flavorful than most for the style.
