Pours a nice amber. Nice floral nose, some citrus. Great hop flavors with a bitter finish. A very fine pale.

Very crisp and hoppy tasting pale ale, my first of the Sierra Nevada offerings. Very nice on a hot summer day...

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 High citrus(cascade)flavour, crisp finish, excellent on tap. becoming more available at convenience outlets so you can have your cake and drink it too. If I were king it would replace Budweiser as the nation's session beer. Then again I am king, so I think I shall have another.

A nice pale ale with a hard finish. Hoppy and bitter, but still very easy to drink.

What a great Pale Ale. Crisp and bitter. No matter how many you drink, they still taste good...

Bit o' fun in a bottle. Classic hoppy smell, but not over-bitter at the finish. Good texture and balance in the mouth.

This is a fantastic beer in every way. It has a great hoppy smell and strong hoppy taste. Yum.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 I’ve had on draft and from bottle. Both are excellent, but draft is rated here. Amber/copper, clear, huge tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of hops, pear, berry (?). Nice, sweet malt initially, then long, bitter finish. Definitely a stand-by at bars that carry it. Excellent cascade hoppy flavor (which I love). Finish is pretty bitter at first, but grew on me. One of my favorites.

Very nice smooth with a little bitter kick. This is very good but I like Boulevard Pale Ale a little bit more. Not as citrusy as I expected. Very Nice very drinkable and I would recommend it to anyone who hadn't tried it.

I love the complex bouquet when pouring a glass. Hard to believe something this good is sold at the local drug store!
