4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Foggy amber-colored pale ale with a light, crisp taste. Satisfying head, especially for a pale ale. Thickly carbonated that makes it enjoyable to drink, but not too carbonated as to leave you with a stomach full of air. Starts off hoppy and slightly bitter, finishes with a faint spicy aftertaste.

Copper in colour. Aroma was hoppy, floral with quite a bit of citrus. Flavour was quite hoppy(grapefruit and flowers), oranges, nice mouthfeel. Slightly sweet up-front, medium body. Finished with a medium bitterness. This grew on me as I was drinking it. Very easy to drink.

Nice dark golden colour - don't think a pale ale could look any more appealing. Nice and hoppy nose, with lots of floral notes. Good 'mouthfeel' and level of bitterness make this an easy-drinkking ale that would be a great everyday beer.

Great tasting pale ale, the cascade hops can be tasted and this is a good thing since they make a great ale. Deep color and full body also lend to the great taste of a great beer, if you haven't tried on tap, it beats the hell out of the bottle.

Draft--Nice golden-amber color, somewhat thin head. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of citrus. Smooth taste that is well balanced, good finish. An easy drinker that isn't overly complex.

Nice, fruity aroma. The color is a light golden color. Flavor is hoppy with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Very easy to drink and it goes well with any meal.

Rich amber color with a dissipating white head. Nice hoppy bouquet that gives way to a smooth, slightly bitter taste. Very easy on the palate.

I'm gonna have to go against the grain on this one (ha-ha, get it?). I have tried this on more than one occasion and just do not like it. The flavour is both hoppy and malty, but somehow yuppy. I mean, I feel like a yuppy drinking it. Not only is appearance-wise totally not my style, but taste-wise as well. Pale ales I don't dig so much. In this style, I prefer the flavour of Sweetwater 420. Frankly, I'm surprised Sierra Nevada Pale Ale gets such a high rating - and a little puzzled. I don't understand it. This kind of thing just isn't my bag.

nice orange gold color with a white head, lots of carbonation. lovely aroma of citrus, hops, spice, and a bit of carmel. very good hop flavor with a bit of spice...dry finish. i think this is a great pale ale...again a very drinkable beer, especially on a nice hot summer night.
