Sierra Nevada Myron’s Walk

Myron’s Walk is a Belgian-style Pale Ale that comes with Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across America mixed 12-pack. This 5.3% ABV brew is the result of collaborative efforts with Maine’s Allagash Brewing and is named after Myron Avery, one of the founders of the Appalachian Trail which stretches from North Carolina (near Sierra Nevada’s east coast location) all the way up to Maine. It seem’s like an appropriate enough name for the beer.

As far as the flavors and all the gory details are concerned, Myron’s Trail isn’t nearly as difficult to trek as the mountainous path of its namesake, but it certainly does throw in a sneaky spot or two. The potent addition of coriander and other spices hits a bit too hard for my liking, but the additional touch of yeasty funk is something that I particularly enjoyed.


Hazy, gold in color, Myron’s Walk sits with a frothy column of white foam that left behind a web of lacing.

Pine, tropical fruits, coriander and other spices lead the way for a touch of funky, soft bready notes and a hint of white pepper.


Whoa. A ton of coriander and spices plow over the tastebuds, leaving them little chance of picking up the soft grassy, piney hop tones and citrus presence. The amount of spice influence is a bit much for my personal preference, but thankfully that yeasty funk is also stronger here than on the nose. It’s an earthy brew with a good deal of complexity and activity. Myron’s Walk is light bodied and refreshing.


I really wanted to like this beer more than I did as both breweries are two of my favorites. That spice/coriander impact is just too much for me though. I wish it was a bit more toned down to let that funkiness shine through a bit more.
