12 fl oz brown bottle. Poured orangey-gold shade, slight haze. Small white cap thins out considerably leaving tiny surface bubbles. Hoppy citrus aroma. Moderate carbonation. Good malt profile backed with grapefruity Cascade bitterness. Too bad this isn’t common in Canada...

Great pale, spicey with citrus finish. This is my default beer, widely available. Never found it on tap yet...

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 Bottle. Slight hoppy smell with malty character behind it. A nice bitter hoppy taste and that is about it.

often this pale ale is the only decent brew available in restaurants and many bars. its extremely pervasive in the bay area. nice color and light malty taste, certainly a journeyman ale but still often your best choice in many places that offer this and a few other beers.

Rich golden colour, this lasting off-white head. Bright citrusy cascade aroma mixed with light bready maltiness underneath. Served entirely too cold. Flavour is of caramel, light bread and a touch of toast. Citrusy and light resiny flavour as well. Nice moderate bitterness. A touch of orange aroma as well. Very nice, but I prefer it on tap.

Clear golden amber with a small white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit. Smooth fruity flavor with some crispness and a light mouthfeel. Well balanced with a light hoppy bitterness. Pretty good for a pale ale. Not normally my style but I like it well enough. Seems to be widely available. Sierra Nevada produces a good range of quality brews.

Very easy to find. Great standby when you’re either in a pinch for money or location to buy harder to find items. They may serve it on tap at Angels stadium next to the Coors Light, but in the midwest it’s a very quality beer.

Nice looking pale ale as it pours however the twist-off caps seems to cheapen the product somehow. Full malt flavor with an assertive hop bite attests to this beers faithfulness to the original recipe. Fine example of an APA.
