Bottle to pint glass.

AROMA: very light hop and barley aroma
LOOK: light copper appearance; small, but creamy head
TASTE: whole wheat/oat/grain flavors, hoppy finish.
FEEL: Creamy and well carbonated. Good balance.

Went well with my seafood dinner.

Looks like a light lager with medium body. Excellent carbonation. Smells like light cascade hops. Tastes like hops but easy to drink. Nice crisp lager easy finish. Easy to drink a 6 pack but not as bad as commercial light lagers. My least favorite from Sierra Nevada but still not bad.

12/25/17: 12 Ounce Bottle @ The Cosmopolitan $1 Tip playing video poker. Had this beer dozens of times, never knew I haven't rated in the past. Amber pour with white head. Beautiful hops aroma, love the aroma and taste. Nice balance of hops and malt, bitter and pleasant. Very solid mouth feel, carbonation holds well, firm going down. Overall very good Pale Ale, well done Sierra Nevada!
