MrGGen (326) - ITALY - APR 17, 2016
Di un bel color rame intenso con schiuma quasi cremosa. Aroma di luppolo, speziato e zuccherino. In bocca risalta il luppolo e risultano sentori di caramello e di qualcosa di erbaceo. Media corposità in un finale lungo e secco. Nel complesso una birra di alta qualità.

Pours golden amber with a creamy head. Floral aroma with citrus, bread and some pine. Medium body, slick feel, average carbonation. Taste is deliciously hoppy with oranges, grass and some grapefruit. Malty finish.

The benchmark American Pale Ale by which all others are judged. Even after the flood of pale ales and IPAs, it remains a classic status.

De Cervecería Sierra Nevada(EUA) esta "Pale Ale Handcrafted" una cerveza estilo American Pale Ale,uno de los estilos mas reproducidos en cervecerías gringas y yo creo que tambien mexicanas(obviamente me refiero a micro cerveceras o como mas común se les conoce cerveceras artesanales), casi todos tienen una versión de este medianamente lupulado estilo y generalmente es la cara o forma parte de las etiquetas de linea, que es básicamente una Pale Ale con enfoque a lucir un perfil de lúpulos americanos al contrario que la English que es mucho mas maltosa. En apariencia esta Pale tiene una corona de espuma delgada con buena retención, perlas medianas y brillantes, actividad de carbonatación moderada, su color es un dorado claro semi turbio con un cuerpo ligeramente marcado. Su aroma presenta cítricos, piel de toronja, en segundo plano pináceos, olor a dulce de forma marcado, un pequeño ester a tostado al final. En el paladar esperaba mas de esta clásica de Sierra Nevada pero es básica, aunque no deja de ser muy rica, cuenta con sabores a piña, naranja, un sabor mas marcado a resina del que se aprecia en el olor, algo de corteza de pan con un dulzor muy equilibrante y que previene la astringencia, contiene apenas un 5.6% de ABV que la hacen bastante sesionable.

Bouteille 355 ml, LCBO. Couleur jaune doré, mousse blanche, épaisse. Nez de céréales et un peu de houblon. En bouche, assez maltée, houblon léger qui se répand. Bonne beer.

Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
355ml bottle. Amber, slightly cloudy. Nice hoppy floral aromas. Malty, citrus taste, some bitterness, some sweetness too. A nicely balanced and complex American pale ale.

Clear copper with light yellow head from can. Malt, sugar, some fruit. Sweet with dishwashing fluid. Watery palate. I wonder if this batch is somehow tainted or if it’s the can.

Ar- citrusy hop aroma stands out, hints of wheat bread or toast, Ap- gold in color, pours a short dissipating head Fl- sweet malts present throughout, balanced with low levels of citrusy hops and hop bitterness. Mild bitter aftertaste Mf- med to full bodied, well carbonated, lively on the tongue, Ov- the definition of a craft beer staple, everything is done well, nothing really stands out, probably why this beer has been around for decades. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
