A good pale ale, if you donít mind the malt overpowering the beer. Tastes very floral, almost too much.

Mild, but menacing, hops on top a dream-cicle (orange and vanilla) aroma. Dominant dry-hop flavor, with some vanilla. Pale orange. Keep this on the front of the tongue, because the bitter really builds if you let it get onto the sides and back of the tongue. I know that people like this, but itís a ham-handed ode to Cascades hops -- thatís done much better by Anchor.

My go to Beer for Summer . get it by the six or by the 1/2 case, just get some. I am starting to see this beer widely available and I am glad. Much better than other choices at most resturants,even my local grocery has it. This is a good choice to give to those who have been indoctrinated thru marketing that a Bud or Coors light is a good beer.I will keep my beer fridge full of this stuff, canít wait to get my first 1/2 barrel keg of it.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 Excellent flavor for a bottled ale....flavor is consistent and it tastes like it looks..very good. Pours a melancholy amber..clear, but cool. Some swathy white head, but fairly trivial. The nose is malty and fruity..perhaps apples. The taste is crisp, but heavy...sweet and malty... the finish is dry and sweet, light on the carbonation.

A darker version then the IPA, but less harsh. Good flavor and very drinkable make this something actually worth paying for.

I have actually sampled SN Pale Ale on several occassions and every time I have come up wanting more. The beer has a smokey taste but not much flavor. I think will move on.

Iím not as high on this beer as a lot of people, but it is still very drinkable. Seems almost too one dimensional(almost no sweetness).

Golden with a fast falling head that only leaves a soapy layer. Hoppy aroma with notes of peaches in whipped cream, citrus fruits and icing sugar. Nice hop flavors, like freshly cut cereals and a well balanced bitter finish.
