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: MAY 13, 2004 Pretty bitter and sudsy, but not a bad swill. Ya have to be ready for the initial sour bite. Classy old Western style bottle. Bubbly, and autumn orange colored. Goes down happily, with medium bite that makes you smile. Nebulous appearance visually. The most un-disagreeable aftertaste I've yet experienced from a mass produced beer.

Not at the top of my list of pale ales, but still rather good. Very crisp. Hoppy and bitter as hell.

Still darkish pale ale with a dry well hopped flavour and aroma. Overall a very good dry beer.

Tap. The second batch I brewed was a pale ale. When it was finally ready, I had to go out and try a pale ale as I had no idea how it was suppose to taste! I'm learning...

Ahh, I finally try the much talked about, ubiquitous SNPA. Floral, citrusy aroma. Great dark body. Really refreshing, delicious beer.

top ten beer - when it's fresh it's unbeatable - the combination of a beautifully amber-yellow color with a perfectly aromatic floral head - finished with the ultimate hop flavor. aaahhh

One of my all time favorite brews. I've had hoppier, I've had maltier, but I don't know if I've had a more balanced pale ale. Deep amber color, with tons of hops, citrus, and slight honey in the aroma. Tastes like a dream, super smooth, very crisp, very hoppy, and very well balanced. Finished smooth, hoppy, malty, and clean, with wonderful citrus overtones.

Now this is good stuff. Probably my most frequently bought beer. Pale copper/amber tone, medium snow-white head, hoppy and even a bit citrusy flavor. Great crispness. I'd never turn one down. It's just an all-around good beer.

Pours orange/amber with an extremely thin white head. Hoppy smell with just a little spiciness. There is tons of stuff floating in this beer. Has a nice, clean sweetness, with a solid hop bite at the end. A very pleasant, if not-that-complex APA, although slightly overrated if you ask me; SN's Celebration Ale is significantly better.
