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.
