Hoppy Lager, crisp and hoppy. Another very drinkable hybrid, lager beers are usually not hoppy. This was part of a "party pack" with 4 different beers from Sierra Nevada. I rarely drink lagers any more, but they do have their charm. This one is very tasty. Reminds me of many years ago, when my "beer after work" was Steinlager. I have not had a Stein in probably 10 years, I got tired of them and when Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale came out it was so much better, in my mind. I should get a Steinlager and include in my 100 day challenge!
