In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Sierra Nevada Brewing Company Sidecar Orange Pale Ale

“The orange-peel flavor is light and wedged somewhere between the malt and hops but doesn’t heighten either. The hops are grassy, floral, resinous, and bitter, and the malt is clean and bready. A little astringency in there, with a light, crisp body. Mildly soapy character, with a bit of bitterness in the finish.”
