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.

Clear amber golden body with a medium size white head. Hops on the nose. Taste is lovely and bitter and smooth, slight raw hops, not big in body but very easy drinking.

This is the best beer that I have found that is available almost anywhere and has a twist off cap. Cascade hops experience for the masses. Pours a nice amber with minimal head. Maltiness balances extermely well with hops for a change of pace for something you can find in most places that are worth their salt.

Pours an amber color with a white head that is mostly diminishing. aroma is of pines and some malts. Flavor is a little bitter and a tad bit creamy. The beer leaves a nice aftertaste that is slightly bitter. Nice beer.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2005
Poured from the bottle, a clear amber with a thin head. A strong malty aroma - very nice. Malty again in the flavour with a bitterness in the aftertaste. A solid beer that is very drinkable (as evident from ther number I had during my trip to California).

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Clear golden hue with a fine head. Hoppy nose with a faint spicy aroma. Malty palate, with hops dominating the flavor, although nicely balanced. Consistantly drinkable, bottle to bottle. In restaurants with a limited beer selection, I will look for this , as it is so widely available.

Bottle. Smells hoppy and slightly fruity. Tastes initially of hops with a little bit of a malt kick after the initial bitterness disipates. Pretty good. I could definately knock back a few of these...

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Nice pour with a great golden color and a decent head. The aroma is malty with a classic "beer" smell with hints of cascade hops. The cascade hops are up front on the tongue with the malty flavor following to balance things out. This is a much better beer than I remember. Maybe my beer palate is changing?
