4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Amber colour with hoppy nose, good smooth flavour wit lot of hop and sweetish fruit, bit sherberty. Fruits are citrus and berry. Lasting very hoppy finish. First bottle was delicious, but I had 2 more during the evening and I thought that it became a bit too sweet and slightly cloying

Thank you sierra for this pale ale! This really makes for an excellent, easy-drinking ale that doesnít warp the palate after a couple. Medium body plus 1 is the perfect ratio and this hoppy, floral sweetened ale achieves it. I went to a coors party, but they called and asked if I would like something else, I said get any pale ale if you can - they picked a good one!

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2005 I like darker beers, but if I ever change my mind about that it will be because of this pale ale. Once again Sierra Nevada makes an amazing beer.

Bottle. Poured a murky golden with a small white head. Nose and flavor is very hoppy and slighty citrus with small hints of spice mixed in. Enjoyable.

A great American Pale Ale. I really love this and have tried to copy it homebrewing numerous times. My standard at establishments that donít have world class brew (not that this isnít world class). Nice hoppyness in the aroma and taste, have to love the grapefuityness of the Cascade and a nice malt bill.

Nice dark golden color with good head and lacing. Aroma is nice but not overpowering. Flavor is bitter with a hint of sweetness. Palate lingers, but is not overwhelming. Very nice brew.

Bottle: Clear to cloudy gold color with a fluffly off-white head and thick, sticky lacing. It offers wheaty malts and lemony hops to the consumer. It has a quick bitter taste followed by a nicr malty finish. When it is cold, aromas are hard tp pick up, but as it warmed up I noticed some clover honey scents. It has a lot of carbonation with a thin body. As I drank it, I could see why it is so popular -- itís a good ale.

This must be the beer with the highest number of ratings, that Iíve rated so far. Not much to add, except: wonderful bitter pale ale with a beautiful orange golden color. A pleasure.
