3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
During the hellish-hot Alabama summer of 2012, when my A/C was broken, and I could not survive at times without having a fan blow directly on me while I sprayed water on myself, I would occasionally crave a good, cold brew to guzzle while I watched Dawn of the Dead.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale was one of the better ones.
Keeping it slightly cool in the 6-pack, which was in turn inside a double-packed plastic bag, I partake of this fine ale that night the snake crawled out of my couch, and onto my leg (or was I drinking Yuengling in cans at the time? I can’t remember as I was drunk and trying to catch that snake that to this day I pray was not a copperhead).
Quality stuff, and I’m happy to say that my local BP station carries it for a mere $7.99 per six pack, as opposed to a dollar more at the Kangeroo station across the street.
I am also about to tackle some right after I type this - tally-ho!

Pale ale de 35cL, bon gout de cereales. À réserver aux amateurs de bières plutôt amères. Les 5.6deg. font qu’elle n’est pas très alcoolisée mais elle est cependant puissante.

Bottle. It’s an ok pale ale. I guess it is the original. So it deserves some respect.

Poured from a can. Amber color with a frothy head. Lots of lacing. Floral notes. Much more bitter than I was expecting. Wouldn't buy again. Many better pale ales out there.

Bottle. Amber color, frothy off-white head. Appetizing hoppy aroma with sweet notes. Smooth flavor with a superb balance between sweet caramel, malts and aromatic hops. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. A true classic that I keep coming back to.

Arguably the first American Pale Ale and still, again arguably, the best. Perfect body, clean and refreshing, with a delicious bitterness throughout

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 One of the better easily available pale ales out there. A nice hop presence that delivers the typical flavours from cascade. Nothing special, but a good value beer.

Aroma is a little bit stale bread but otherwise a refreshing pale ale with nice bitterness.

Amber in color. With a vigorous pour, produces a nice big head that is dense and slow to fade.
Aroma is that of spicy hops with floral undertones. Malt taste is understated and has bready or biscuit taste.
Taste is that of floral hops and bready maltiness. Sweet
Smooth and well balanced dry finish.
A go to pale ale
Drink well my friends
