Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a delightful example of the classic pale ale style. It has a deep amber color and a exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. The fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor are the results of the generous use of the best Cascade hops.<P> Bottle Conditioned.

11-21-02 bottling date. Thin malt; sometimes prominent hops. What has become of Sierra Nevada, Inc.? In the late 90's, you could get a bottle of this with the yeast still visible at the bottom... sigh.

I am not a big fan on pale ales but this one is pretty good. Nice amber color somewhat long lasting white head, and a nice hoppy rich flavor.

A dependable one to order out at the bars. Nice and hoppy. One of my favorites from this brewery. It's nice that you can find this all over the country.

Very crisp and dry, good hops character. Malt is toned down tremendously with the hops. I love most of the beers from Sierra. This is no different.

Not my favorite beer. Tried it after a friend recommended it and was un-impressed.

Caramel color with light foamy head. Aromatic of citrus, hops and lightly of caramelized malts. A hoppy bitter flavor with citrus.

When I was in my early twenties, this was the first brew I tried that was a non-standard American brew... I hated it, simply because it had a bitter aftertaste. What I have come to realize many years later is that this was the first beer in my life that actually had some flavor I just didn't know it at the time. Long stor short, my taste have become refined, and now for the rating. The aroma is one of the best I have come by yet, sweet,hoppy,floral, excelent. The appearance is a bright burnt orangish/golden color, with a nice bubbly head. The flavor is of citrus, and hoppy, with that previously mentioned bitter aftertaste (but now I know this is a good thing). The beer is smooth and a pleasure to drink. Overall a very nice pale ale.

Bursting with hoppiness and citrus. The finish is slightly bitter and a bit over-carbonated, but overall, it is a decent pale ale, especially for a beer you can buy at the grocery store.

This is a pretty darn good pale ale. It has a pleasant, floral hop aroma. There's a pretty good balance between the hops and malts, and the body is substantial for a pale ale. This is is golden in color, not amber as the description suggests. Pretty impressive.

The tastiest Pale Ale I have ever had. One of my long time favorite beers. Perfect Pale Ale color. Good amount of head.
