This remains a very good pilsner-style Lager from the folks @ Sierra Nevada.

*Clear golden sunshine when poured into a glass with very little head.
*Hints of grass, corn, and hay on the palatte.
*Pleasant bitterness at the finish, consistent with German hops.

I find this year's edition (2014) to be a little bit lighter in flavor and mouthfeel than previous years. Maybe it's just me, but that's how it seems.
