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.

I think I might’ve purchased an old pack due to the total lack of date on the bottle, some weird indecipherable code. It been a while since I had this so I have no comparison for the current 6 pack but it seems a bit old. Aroma is grapefruit with caramel malts and a bit of pine. Appearance is amber with an off white head. Taste is sweet and well balanced but a bit tempered and wet. palate is medium bodied and refreshing enough. A champion of a style I’m not particularly fond of but certainly worth picking up in a desperate situation.

bottle at home bought at Ammersin5, Vienna. redish / orange color, little small white head. smells sourish, black currant, some fruits on the smell, overall very subtle smell. medium body, slick mouthfeel, sourish taste, light medical, some fruits, light bitter, medical finish. kinda weird medical note, probably something wrong with the bottle. saved for re-rate.

355ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium head that sticks around for a while. Hoppy nose, matching malt body, crisp carbonization, bitter finish. No wonder this beer is a benchmark for pale ales, it simply is good.

Przyzwoite piwo, taki pale ale dnia powszedniego :) Sierra Nevada Pale Ale jest w smaku słodowe z wyczuwalną goryczką, bardzo "konkretne", średnio owocowo-chmielowy aromat. Wydaje mi się, że jest to dobre piwo do "uświadamiania" rodaków, którzy znają jedynie Poland - lagery typu Tyskie itp.

PapaVillum (562) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2015
350 ml / 35 cl, flaske, 5,6 % ABV, BB 09/07/15, købt i Føtex på Nordre Fasanvej på Frederiksberg, 23. februar 2015. Klar og filtreret kobberfarvet APA med 5 cm stor hvid skumtop, som svinder til 1 cm efter en halv snes minutter. Ganske frisk aroma af blomster og let citrus. Frisk humlet smag uden krydderier og andre dikkedarer. Medium bitter og en meget let sødme. God mellem fyldig krop med en ganske potent og frisk karbonering. Olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er bitter, mellem tør og smager lige på grænsen af det beske, hvilket er godt. En ligetil og gedigen Pale Ale brygget med omtanke.

12oz bottle. Drank out of the bottle. Great grassy, piney aroma with slight hint hint of tree sap sweetness. Crisp and refreshing. Bitter on the palate but not overly so. Really well-balanced APA. Slightly sweet with a nice crisp finish.

Really tastes like an APA should. Plenty of grassness in the flavor with an acceptable consistency.

Well balanced taste between sweet and bitter. Faint malt taste acompanied by hops and a little fruit. Very crisp feel in the mouth and good carbonation.

Piękna bursztynowa barwa, piwo klarowne. Piana średnio-pęcherzykowa, szybko redukująca się do pierścienia. U mnie lacingu brak. W smaku przede wszystkim słodowe, w aromacie dodatkowo chmielowa owocowość. Goryczka średnia.

Can. Pours a clear golden with a large frothy head. Aroma of grassy hops, resin, pale malts and hints of caramel. Taste is light malty with a moderate bitterness. Well balanced. Some floral notes, faint resin and subtle caramel malts. Crisp mouthfeel with avg co2 levels. Highly drinkable.
