Draught. A quite good, reliable Pale Ale. Full floral fragrance with a grainy, spicy texture. Plenty of spicy hops. Strong hints of citrus and pine. Crisp, clean finish.

This is truly some nice stuff. Beautiful color... very pleasing to all senses. Looks,smells, and tastes fantastic. Very heavily hopped which gives it a clean bite that I never tire of.

Ahh, Sierra Nevada, one of my favorites. I can't say much that hasn't been said already about this fine brew, so I will just say "Drink it." That is all.

Citrus and pine aroma. Dark golden with white frothy head that receeds fully with some lacing. Plenty of hop flavour and a balanced maltiness. Medium body and carbonation but mouthfeel is quite full. Quite a decent pale ale. Bottle.

this is available at every liquor store, or bar, so if there is nothing else, one will turn to the Sierra. A decent brew, but The celebration is much much better.

I had heard a lot about this beer from other "micro" beer drinker, so when it went on sale for $4.99 a six i thought i,de give it a go.
Pours pretty nicelly, but doesnt hold a head to well, the smell is good. Has a nice after taste to it , thiough the feel in the mouth is pretty average. I was drinking this with a hang over already so maybe i found the drinkabilty less than i would have in top condition LOL

The best pale ale I've ever had. If I were ever gonna buy pale ale again I would surely buy this again.

This is a beer that makes living in a place with a lack of good beers bearable. You can get it nearly everywhere, and you always know that you will get the standard by which the style is measured.

Cloudy gold in colour. Aromas are light pine needle and spices. Floral flavour that is light and refreshing. Nice dry hops to finish but not as much bite as the more alcoholic pale ales. The lighter way to enjoy pale ales.

Deep golden hue with an off-whote foamy head. Floral, hoppy nose with hints of citrus and yeast. Lovely floral taste that follows the nose with a crisp dry finish. Not as intensely hoppy as some APAs but yet another fantastic beer.
