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.

Lovely amber colour, with a good head. You can smell those citrus hops straight out of the bottle, but the aroma fades a bit after the pour. Medium body, with citrus hops, I’m mainly getting grapefruit on the middle and finish. Carbonation pretty much spot on for me. A very good beer, very tasty, but I couldn’t drink more than one or two at a time.

Barwa: złota, lekko zmętniona.
Piana: obfita, kremowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, niestety szybko opada.
Zapach: średnio intensywny, głównie aromaty żywiczne z nutami owocowymi, trochę cytrusów i owoców tropikalnych.
Smak: średnio pełne, tak jak w aromacie nuty żywiczne i owocowe, bardzo przyjemna goryczka o charakterze skórki od grejpfruta.
Wysycenie: średnie do wysokiego, nadaje lekkości piwu.

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.

willisread (173) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2015
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.
