Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a delightful example of the classic pale ale style. It has a deep amber color and a exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. The fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor are the results of the generous use of the best Cascade hops.<P> Bottle Conditioned.

Borostyán szín, közepes, rendkívül tartós hab. Illata visszafogott, komlós-malátás, hajszálnyi citrusossággal. Enyhén száraz malátás alap, visszafogott, de határozott komlózással, kellemes gyümölcsös aromákkal. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, enyhe, mégis markáns keserűvel. Nagyon jól eltalált, kellemesen aromás sör. Ez az az ital, amit egy buliban egész este eliszogat az ember anélkül, hogy elege lenne belőle.

Stroke (2) - ITALY - SEP 29, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2016 Una delle storiche che ha iniziato un bel po? al mondo delle birre artigianali. Sicuramente ho bevuto una bottiglia vecchia e mal conservata in una pizzeria. Al naso č poco incisiva ed i luppoli si sentono molto leggeri. In bocca le sensazioni sono le stesse, scarica. Peccato.

Aromas of grapefruity citrus, juicy pine. Clear amber with a fairly lasting white head. Mostly dry, nicely balanced with the hops in the forefront. Light-medium bodied.

16 oz can Into glass Aroma: some subtle citrus and maybe a bit piney hop aroma. Cascade hops. Low malt aroma. Clean. Appearance: clear amber (maybe dark gold) with white quickly disappearing foam. Some thin lacing. Just a tad darker than what I expect from "pale" ale. Flavor: moderate hop bitterness balanced well by the malt. citrus notes. Low hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: low to medium bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Smooth and clean no harshness and moderate hop bitterness. Malt takes back seat to hops. Overall: very drinkable, balanced, perhaps even a bit conservatively boring pale ale (or session IPA). Not extreme in any criteria except a bit more amber than pale ales. SRM is 8-9 range by eye. And slightly more malty than many traditional pale ales ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear deep gold with a bit beige head and decent lacing. Light aroma of citrus, resin and light malt. Well balanced crispy taste. High carbonation, light body. A perfectly balanced pale ale, no astringency, no off-flavors. Refreshing.

Great easy drinking, everyday beer. Good medium hop smell, caramel color, even body taste, lingering palate. Overall a classic.

ianwelby (1114) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Clear golden beer, smells of fruit and bready spices. There’s a spiciness to the taste as well, along with some grassy, zesty fruit, bitter hop and a floral feel to it. There’s a bit of a caramel base to it as well giving it a slightly richer feel than many pale ales. Really very tasty.
