Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale (2007-2009)

To say that I have grown tired of SN may be an exaggeration, but I’ve been drinking less and less of their products recently. I’ve grown a touch wary of these somewhat bland and certainly unimaginative hop based pale ales that they turn out time and time again. There are about 9 or 10 beers that are close to identical – what’s the point?
This has been in ATL for a long time but I had no interest in a sixer for the reasons above, so I bought this one as a 12 oz bottle at Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA, USA.
Pale orange pour from the 12 oz bottle. Good head and nice lace. Solid looker.
Nose is very simple – light hops with a stronger bitterness in the taste than the nose would initially suggest. Bitterness lingers for a moment before fading. Some malts hit on a delayed aftertaste that is almost gaseous like. Grassy.
Simple and solid brew but why so many beers that are essentially the SAME??
