Beer Profile: Sierra Nevada’s Otra-Vez

Profiled by Ken Carman for PGA

otravez-bottle-pint2016I usually love almost anything Sierra does, but this has some issues. “Lemon?” yes. “Sourness,” slight if any. Doughy malt? NO. Salt is close to absent. Nose is pretty much lemon. Hint of sour in aroma, true. No hops, as expected.

Head almost none existent. Some haze. Light yellow. Hint of pepper from coriander.

Low carbonation, at best, light body. Suggest more wheat for mouthfeel, wheat sense absent.

Misses the mark in several categories, but a great quaff.

84 on BA, 81 Ratebeer.



Welcome to the PGA beer rating system: one beer “Don’t bother.” Two: Eh, if someone gives it to you, drink. Three: very good, go ahead and seek it out, but be aware there is at least one problem. Four: seek it out. Five: pretty much “perfecto.”
