A very nice pale ale, nice smooth hoppie taste, a rich aroma, leaves a pleasant aftertaste, all in all I would have to say it is my favorite pale ale of all time.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Itís wonderful that such a fine beer is so ubiquitous in the supermarkets around here. Lovely hops.

What a pretty boy. Wonderful aroma, spicey and floral. A bit thin for my liking. Enjoyable in a noncommital way.

Yep, good beer. If youíre a fan of pales this is one to try. Nice floral, sweet aroma. Clear golden color. All in all very crisp, refreshing and enjoyable. Good brew

just what this beer needs: a one hundred seventy-eighth rating; one more wang (me) to affirm itís noble lineage with a burp and trite but earnest proclamation: íyeh, thish izzz puuuurdy good...í SNPA is a great standard: a few better pales are out there, sure, but even more hacks and losers and charlatans. available in many of the most dismal grocery store beer coolers nationwide, like a friend waving from a crowd of drones. faint haze in the color, yellow like a kodak box. perky little head. nice aroma of-duh-hops, but also a grassy scent of burlap thatís not at all unpleasant. a little sweetness and biscuit in the taste, not much bitterness.

Though a little flat, not a bad Pale Ale if you find it on sale.

Very good pale ale. I have tried this beer in many locations and have had a couple bad batches though. I would recommend giving it a few tries to be sure you experience it at its best.

Cloudy light orange appearance with a weak, but not distasteful, flavor. Easy to drink, but underdeveloped flavors and lacks punch--preponderately attributable to the weak hopping. The Spanish Peaks pale ale I recently enjoyed embarrasses this sierra nevada offering.
