Im reviewing this based on a VERY VERY VERY hazy morning after Halloween in Indio at "8" in '09...Chugged three of these with a few donuts and then went back to that ridiculous 24 hour kickball game...Its was a pilsner...It slaked my thirst...I was very very very very high...A good time was had by all

10/30/13 Sierra Nevada Murican Pils is what this was called at the Tap takeover at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

My first impression on the nose was oregano...yeah, I know...WTF? Thankfully that soon dissipated & what I got was very slight spiciness & a nice smooth finish. Well balanced hops. All in all a good beer.

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
