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.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (12oz). Probably my second-favourite American pale ale (after the Stone). Pours medium coppery golden, nice bubbling, smooth, thin white head, not much lacing in my Fin du Monde glass. Aroma of vigorous hops, blended citrus, apricot, hint of tobacco. Flavour is balanced - Iím sure itís pretty hoppy and bitter, but itís so well balanced with non-bitter grapefruit and off-dry wine notes, itís in a word smooth. Long, smooth linger on the tongue, no hop build-up. One of the great summer beers. Iím a fan.

This beer pours an amber color with a large head. The aroma is fresh...kind of like the smell of sping-scented soap. Hops tastes is fairly strong and pleasing, but not quite as fresh as some other beers (Dogfish for example). This beer is pretty easy to find, and fairly cheap, so Iíll be going back to this one again and again.

This is definitely one of my favorite beers. Not only is the flavor great, but you can find it pretty much anywhere. Best APA Iíve had

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 A go-to pale ale. Always good, always available. Would rather drink an AleSmith brew, but Iím not going to whine if this is my only option.

This is a very good product for an APA. It may be slightly overrated, but then again.. what more could you ask for.

Wow. This beer tasted great at 7 PM, 3AM and 11 AM. I had several during my stay in LAs Vegas, and even brought some home for the beer afficionados in Winnipeg. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Had to have this from the bottle as was on a walk at the time. Aroma is hoppy and slightly citrus. Taste is domminated by grapefruit, but in a particularly good, way. We dont get many pale ales over here, well american oneís anyway, but this was really nice, would like to try some more.

Light amber with white head and some lacing. Light malty and citrus aroma, with some yeast too. Clean citrus flavors with a crisp sharp bitterness. Some residual malty sweetness. Very refreshing. Had been years since I had this beer and was looking forward to drink it again now that Iíve started to rate them. I was a little disappointed, but this is still a good beer.

This microbrew isnít too hard to find so when I canít find anything else decent at my local bar Iíll get this. itís a bit too dry for my liking but usually this will be the best thing they have in the bar. I canít drink too many of them due to the strong aftertaste.
