COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Excellent pale ale, only recently available in Scotland (Sainsbury’s). Lots of fruity hop in the aroma, light amber in colour. Taste predominantly hop, with a fruity malt background, long, pleasant, characteristically american finish (those cascade hops, again).

When i was a kid i hated this beer. Now the tables have turned because i cant stand Mickeys and St. Ides any more. Pouring this creates monster head and nice dense off gold/brown color. I always thought this was from Nevada but its not. Great beer overall and not as expensive as other micro’s. Will be drinking this more often.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2004
A nice amber color with a thick white lasting head, this has a light hop aroma over a mild malt scent. It has a clean malt taste with a good dose of hoppy bitterness with a citric aftertaste. A nice mouth-feel... nice drink over all.

maybe i got a dud bottle of this. maybe, since this wasn´t one of the first microbrews i tasted, i didn´t have much of an emotional attachment to it. anyway to me it seemed decent but average. amber, surprisingly light citric aroma, light body, reasonable bitterness, nothing really stood out. anyway, since duff didn´t think much of the bottle we shared either, i´m guessing we got a stale one

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2004
This is a nice refreshing pale ale. Fruity, sharp hoppiness is the main player here. Good color and pleasant carbonation. Fruity, light malt flavors. Crisp and playful mouthfeel. This could be an everyday beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Very refreshing, surprisingly complex for a pale ale. Hops aren’t over or underdone. Great when you want to have a few or nine.

A middle of the ground pale ale. Not terribly bitter. A delicious beer all in all. Good bang for your buck.
