Sierra Nevada Nooner Picmonkey



Sierra Nevada Brewing

Chico, California

Style: Pilsner

Alcohol: 5.2%

IBUs: 38

Serving Style: kegs, 12-ounce bottles and cans

Availability: Year around nationally


Appearance:   “Bright golden color with good off-white head.”

Aroma:   “Some spicy and floral hoppiness, but not overpowering.”

Taste:   “Fine balance of malt and hops in a brew that does appropriate homage to Czech and Bavarian pilsners.  Finishes slightly bitter, but clean and dry. Goes down easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s insufficient."

Food Affinity:   “Grilled cheese sandwiches. Large, soft pretzels with dark mustard. Coppa and other luncheon meats. Cornichons. Would even be a nice accompaniment to main courses like Rouladen.”
