A nice alternative to most beers you'll find at a bar. A clean crisp and hoppy pale ale, but lacks a solid malt backbone and a thick body. Maybe I'm just spoiled by good ipas or imperials.

I really like this beer. Looks great in the glass, laces well, and has a nice hoppy taste that's real easy to drink.

I have this on draft at my local watering hole almost weekly. It pours a nice amber and has a good every day flavor. Nothing overly special about this one, just more like an old friend now. Good hop flavor too.

I had this on my 40th Birthday...on a hot August evening. It was excellent. Great hop bite, without going over the edge.

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.
