I really like Sierra Nevada. The Pale Ale was the 1st micro-brew I ever tried. I still order it, as long as it is on tap. GOOD beer.

Updated: Copper gold copper, huge white creamy head, which left an inch high dollop in the bottom of the glass when I had finished. Light malty and musty aroma, with some fruitiness and a tingle of citric hops. Flavor was light and balanced, with a touch of light fruity malt and tingly hops. Creamy malt palate. Not as great as I remember it, but still a pretty good beer, and one of the best with such a wide distribution.

Very floral aroma, short white head. Little lacing. Kinda reminds me of lebanese tea. Tastes of roses on the first pull, slight but not overwhelming bitterness. A good sipping beer. Lots of carbonation. Slightly on the amber side of Golden.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 Extremely hoppy, citrusy pale ale. An old standby. Best in hot weather at a BBQ. OBVIOUS use of cascade hops to great effect.

The popularity of this beer amazes me. A top seller anywhere. Awesome floral bready aroma. Clean white head. Deep golden hue. Expertly balanced, pleasant malts first, medium bodied, and lovely long hopped out finish. A classic no doubt.

A great tasting beer that is widely available. The natural carbination is a definate plus.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2002
This is really really good- perfectly done. Nice and bitter yet still some malt character. Available practically anywhere and the price is decent for how good it is. I am impressed with how they bottle condition every bottle- that adds a lot to the cost of producing and I appreciate that they take the extra effort- it makes a big difference.

Great on tap, good from the bottle. Practically flat sometimes, though. Flavorful. In Northern California you can find it everywhere.
