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.

Cascade and malt aroma- medium gold with decent but not lasting head. The flavor is bitter upfront, leading to balanced hop and malt flavors, finishing off-dry. Good, reliable and widely available.

Amber orange colored pour. Big creamy white head. Tons of lacing. Orange aroma with notes of pine. Taste is a nice orange citrus. Some malt. Slightly bitter with a maltiness in the back.

This is a 75-word sentence or such. I don't feel like writing such a sentence or paragraph, so this will have to do. Read the rates.

Still a classic pale ale. Seems less grapefruit than in the past but still a nice floral citrus aroma and flavor.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale has a great taste, not too hoppy, very smooth no harash after taste. Highly recommended!!

Teran (29) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 24, 2014
So refreshing! So many levels of aromas! Crispy and in good measure spicy. Mountain purity. Liquid gold. One of the best labels I have ever seen. Fresh green color is so good for this beer.

Westchesterco (1112) - mclean, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a clear golden color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a strong bitter citrus flavor with some tangy spice

350 ml bottle. Pours a dark orange color with a medium off-white head. Nose of citrus (grapefruit) hops and caramel malts. Medium carbonation. A nice hoppy well-balanced finish.

I find that many craft beer drinkers underestimate this ale. This is the ale that helped our cause! Still my favorite go-to for regular drinking and refreshment, crisp drinking with cascade aromas and wonderful vitamin B provided from their yeast in bottle conditioning. Hats off Ken Grossman to a great company with a staple that helped people switch to good craft beer!
