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.

GrooveDaddy (22) - Bham, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2012
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!

Su color ámbar oscuro ya es por sí mismo una preciosidad. Su aroma a hierba fresca, a pino y a cítricos empieza a darnos una idea de lo que nos espera en el primer trago: una cerveza con el lúpulo por bandera, deliciosa y refrescante, muy especiada, recuerdos cítricos y matices suficientes como para no cansarse nunca de ella.

An all time great. Such a perfect taste: citrus, sweetness, maltiness, hoppiness, all in ideal proportion. Beautiful refreshing mouth feel. My only complaint is the bottle isn’t big enough!

Wygląd ok, klarowne, średnia piana. W aromacie delikatne cytrusy, trochę karmelu. W smaku niezła goryczka, dość rześkie i przyjemnie chmielowe.
