Good Pale Ale. This one had a great taste and an amazing aftertaste that really made me want to go back for more. Nice hoppy flavor, and good head retention.

This is the benchmark for american style pale ale. Very drinkable, hoppy enough without being ridiculous, nice session beer.

In comparison to other pale ales there are better beers out there. The nice thing about this beer is it’s a beer that is fairly easy to find both at bars and retail

A classic American PA indeed, but I still lean to Anchor Liberty to lead the pack on this style. A floral Cascade hop nose with a crisp, fruity flavor. Assertive but at the same time delicate. Light amber in color with a moderate hop bitterness with a nice long finish. Always a treat.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2003 Definitely one of my all-time favorite session beers. Somewhat rare in that I enjoy the bottled version more than the draught. A big part of my formative beer geek period.

Good appearance, very flavorful with a bit of a bitter finish. IPA style. Very good beer.

Well I didn’t drink a full glass just a few sips from my friends at this seedy bar. Pretty good, kinda mild but with a slight hoppy taste. Maybe the music helped make this beer better because after an hour of heavy metal a little Marley turned my frown upside down and bumped my impression of SN Pale Ale.
