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.

This is the go to beer when you can’t find anything else worth a damn. Excellent body and aroma. This is a straight up pale ale.

Nice colour, amberish hue. Very drinkable so it can be enjoyed with non-beer geeks. Smooth, but not overly so. Nice bitter flavour, particularly during the finish. Great beer.

Well, we all know about this one. Highly drinkable and well-hopped. I suppose this is the high-water mark for the APA.

Great use of hops. Nice spicy flavor. Bitter but balanced. You can feel your tastebuds water as each sip approaches. As far as pale ales are concerned, Sierra Nevada sets the standard.

This is the best American Pale Ale ever made. It is consistent year after year. The way it is bottle conditioned makes it extra special. This is an ale that really grows on you. Definitely the standard of American Pale Ales!

Amazing beer. Pours with a little bit of white head. The smell of hops makes your mouth water. The taste is very well balanced. Might not be the top beer in its category but for what it is, it’s great.

Tastes very clean. Noticeably better when drunk from a glass. Quite bitter.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Shocking I havent rated this beer yet. A good excuse to have another. NIce grainy amber color. Soft hop aroma with some pleasant citrus notes. Slightly sweet floral hop flavor. Fairly well balanced, somewhat spicy on the palate. A good not to over the top pale.

above average pale ale. has the sierra nevada bite. starts off bitter but becomes slightly sweeter towards the end. better from tap than bottle.
