This beer pours a golden brown color with a light brown head. The head fades slowly, leaving many thick laces.

This beer has a mild sweet malt aroma. A pleasent floral hop aroma is present. Some slight citrus notes are also present. The fresh hop aroma is very pleasent.

This beer tastes much like it smells. Floral and citrus hop flavors dominate. It has a mild sweet malt flavor also. This beer is not bitter, just very hoppy in a subtle way.

This beer is crisp. It goes down refreshingly smooth, leaving a citrus hop aftertaste. Carbonation is perfect.

I think this beer would make an excelent session beer. It is very good, and not overly aggressive.

Overall: I am very impressed with this beer. Usually, I am a little unsatisfied with Sierra Nevada. This is definately an exception. If you see this beer, drink it. Outstanding.
