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.

Pours copper with white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a nice balance of malt and hops. The flavor seems to tip the scales in the hop direction with excellent grapefruit flesh flavors. The mouthfeel nicely coats the mouth and the hops leave a slick feeling resting on the tongue. A very refreshing and tasty brew, a great every day drinking beer and transition beer

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006 Re-rated: I had to up my rating for Olí SNPA. Delicious, goes with hearty food, especially spicy. Say, carne asada burritos with ample lime. Definitely donít drink this with a dainty, or nuanced meal, as this Pale will totally annihilate the food and, frankly, embarrass it with a masterstroke of bold complexity. It smells like fruit and flowers and the first taste is like, "Whoa, hops." Then you actually taste the fruits and flowers, before a delicious wheatiness glides over the palette and prepares you for the next mouthfull. How do they make so much, and make it so delicious? At $7 a sixer at the local supermarket, Iíll take it.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Nice light orange coppery color, with very thin head. Nice hoppy scent. Very floral taste with a very nice hopp bite. A solid beer.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2006 Bottle. Swirl and pour the yeast in from the bottom inch over the head. I once feared these yeast "floaties," but the free vitamins from SN are welcome and boost the flavor leaving an orange rind, and citrus/spruce finish.

kbjames (244) - Utah, USA - MAR 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2004 This really is the prefect example to what a pale ale should be. Its like dirnking a boque of flowers but yet plenty of hops to keep you on your toes. Flagship beer for SN is a winner

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 On draft at Wildflowers in Pennington. Pours a deep copper, but with little head or lace. Goes down nice with slight herby hop bite. Dry finish. Rerated after drinking many at the Hilton at LAX, and after sampling the Lighthouse knockoff in Victoria, BC.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Bottle pours light amber with a burley white head. † Lively carbonation, sticky lacing. † Mild hop & malt aroma. † Slight bitterness up front, but it immediately smooths out to a slightly peppery finish. † Slightly sweet malty aftertaste as well.   Good mouthfeel, solid flavor throughout.   Probably the best APA I've had.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Foggy amber-colored pale ale with a light, crisp taste. Satisfying head, especially for a pale ale. Thickly carbonated that makes it enjoyable to drink, but not too carbonated as to leave you with a stomach full of air. Starts off hoppy and slightly bitter, finishes with a faint spicy aftertaste.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2004
Copper in colour. Aroma was hoppy, floral with quite a bit of citrus. Flavour was quite hoppy(grapefruit and flowers), oranges, nice mouthfeel. Slightly sweet up-front, medium body. Finished with a medium bitterness. This grew on me as I was drinking it. Very easy to drink.
