It's a Celebration, Bitches!

Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale 2006

90 / 100

Sure, Halloween just ended yesterday. Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, one of the most eagerly waited annual beers, was in stores last week. And no surprise here, it's delicious.

It pours an orange-copper with a slight head. Robust hops - pine and floral are balanced by a roasted malt aroma. There's a slight sweetnesss - caramel / cinnamon. The taste has citrus (lemon / orange) notes, but mostly - it's very balanced. Perhaps, because it was only bottled quite recently - it tastes extremely fresh. This is what fall tastes like. It's very crisp, thorough palate coverage, with bitter finish.

Easy drinking, time to stock up. Last year's got better with over the past year. I have a feeling this one is best right now. Drink up.

It's a birthday weekend and it's time to celebrate!
