In this beer blog, we are going to sample the new brew, which is Nooner Pilsner, from Sierra Nevada Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Sierra Nevada Brewery. Let us get into new brew.
It has a clear golden color with a constant white head on this pilsner. The smell has a sweet malty notes. The taste has a sweet malty to slight hop notes. The aftertaste has a crisp dry finish. It is extremely drinkable.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
German-style pilsners are the original session beers. Nooner is our version of the classic style, loaded with floral and spicy hop flavor and balanced by a crisp and dry finish.
Nooner Pilsner packs big flavor into an easy-drinking beer that’s fit for friends and afternoon adventure. Nooner is our take on the classic German pilsner, filled with bright and zesty whole-cone hop flavor with a crisp, dry finish – the perfect pick for wherever the day may take you.

A crisp, hoppy take on the original session beer.
Gather your friends, pack the gear, and head out to wherever the day may take you. A midday go-to, Nooner is our take on the classic German-style pilsner—one of the original session beers. Nooner is easy drinking yet packed with the big flavor of spicy and floral whole-cone hops.

In the end, Sierra Nevada did it again. They took a classic style and kept it a classic beer style. They made the classic pilsner better. It is a fresher and easy going looking brand. You knew that Sierra Nevada would be working on some new brews here soon. Here they are. This one along with Hop Hunter IPA and new spring seasonal, which is Beer Camp Hoppy Lager. The brew itself is true to the classic beer style. To me, it is pretty average beer but I like it. This is going to be my brew to do lawn work around the house in the spring and summer. I highly recommend this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
